From the award winning team behind ‘SENNA’ comes ‘AMY’, an Amy Winehouse documentary that explores the woman behind the name. A documentary on the late singer/songwriter, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011.
“This is an incredibly modern, emotional and 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 and 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 and her precarious lifestyle. As a society we celebrated her huge success but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us.” – James Gay-Rees & Asif Kapadia
