get your first look at the amy winehouse documentary trailer
The film from BAFTA award-winning Asif Kapadia isn’t out until July 3, but here’s a teaser.
Asif Kapadia directed the BAFTA award-winning documentary Senna and is now turning his attentions to the late singer Amy Winehouse. The film, Amy, isn't out until July 3, but the trailer has just been released, with archive footage of her as a goofy teenager, as well as writing, recording and touring as a successful artist.
Cut with shots of her being hounded by paparazzi, the singer says in a pre-major fame interview: "I'm not a girl trying to be a star, or be anything other than a musician. I don't think I'm gonna be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it. I would probably go mad, you know what I mean? I would go mad." Later, as a big name celebrity, she's asked if it's hard to know who to trust and she admits, "yeah", it is.
The film also promises to feature unheard music from the Grammy-winning singer who sadly passed away from alcohol poisoning in July 2011.
