Amy, a documentary recounting the life, work, and untimely death of singer Amy Winehouse, is due in British theaters July 3rd (with international dates forthcoming). The film was made by the same team behind the multi-award winning doc Senna, which told the story of Brazilian three-time F1 world champion driver Ayrton Senna. Specifically, Amy is directed by Asif Kapadia, produced by James Gay-Rees, and features Paul Bell as archive producer.
The documentary collects footage from throughout Winehouse’s career and early life to piece together the steps between her rise and tragic end. “As a society we celebrated her huge success, but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us,” the filmmakers said in a statement. In the trailer, a pre-fame Winehouse is heard responding to a question about how renowned she imagines she’ll become by saying, “I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad.” Watch the full teaser below.
