First Look at Heartbreaking Amy Winehouse DocumentaryThe trailer for Amy, the documentary on the life and career of Amy Winehouse, has just been released and we can already tell that it’s going to be a sad one. The documentary, from the makers of Senna, examines the British artist’s rise to stardom and offers insight into just how troubled Winehouse was behind the microphone.
While her lyrics made it no secret that her life was full of ups and downs, interviews with Winehouse dating from before Back to Black give viewers a deeper look into just how much she suffered. Winehouse admits in one interview, “I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad.”
In an official statement issued on Facebook, the makers of the film describe the documentary as, “an incredibly modern, emotional and relevant film" that is about, “a once-in-a-generation talent who captured everyone's attention.” Watch the trailer below:
Amy Winehouse’s untimely death in 2011 was a deeply felt loss all over the world. Her talent and contribution to the music industry earned her the title of vocal talent of our generation, and many continue to mourn the singer today.
Amy’s release date has not been set, but the producers of the documentary are hopeful that it will be released this summer around the 4 year anniversary of her death.
