“Amy – Official Teaser [HD]”
Synopsis: Asif Kapadia’s 90′ minutes documentary on the six-time Grammy-winner will feature previously unseen archive footage & seek to tell the London performer’s tragic story in her own words. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. James Gay-Rees will produce through Playmaker Films & Universal Music is on board as co-producer.
Kapadia & Gay-Rees said:
“This is an incredibly modern, emotional, & relevant film that has the power to capture the zeitgeist and shine a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few films can. Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent who captured everyone’s attention. She wrote & sung from the heart and everyone fell under her spell. But tragically Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success, & precarious lifestyle. As a society, we celebrated her huge success but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us.”
