An Amy Winehouse documentary will arrive in UK cinemas on July 3, telling the story of the late singer/songwriter “in her own words”.
The film has been directed by Asif Kapadia, who also directed the 2010 documentary Senna, depicting the life and death of Brazilian motor-racing champion Ayrton Senna, and has been produced by James Gay-Rees.
Featuring unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, Amy will be released by Altitude Film Distribution.
Winehouse was a six-time Grammy Award winner thanks to her second album released, via Island in 2006, Back To Black. She died in July 2011 at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning.
Discussing the film, David Joseph, CEO Universal Music UK, has described it as “a very complicated and tender movie. It tackles lots of things about family and media, fame, addiction, but most importantly, it captures the very heart of what she was about, which is an amazing person and a true musical genius.”
