“I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad,” the late Amy Winehouse says in interview footage that appears in the first teaser for the documentary about her life.
The words are haunting and can be heard in the trailer over the isolated vocals to Back To Black along with pictures and videos of her childhood.
The documentary features unseen archival footage and unheard tracks. Asif Kapadia, best known for his documentary Senna about late Brazilian Formula One Racer Ayrton Senna, has directed his documentary.
The trailer of the documentary brings back a lot of memories about the talented star and leaves a lasting impression on you.
This documentary has recordings of her music with haunting interview footage taken throughout her short career.
From Focus Features International, Amy is produced by James Gay Rees through On The Corner Films along with Universal Music.
Amy Winehouse was touted to be one of the most talented musicians of her generation. Her albums, with songs such as Valerie, You Know I’m No Good and Rehab have sold in their millions.
She was known for her distinctive voice, bob shaped hairdo and numerous tattoos. She struggled publicly with drugs and alcohol during a career in which she recorded two albums and won six Grammys (one posthumous). She died from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011.
This two hour long documentary hits the theaters in the UK on July 03, 2015, Amy Winehouse’s death anniversary. A date for it’s US release has yet to be finalised.
If the trailer has made most of us so emotional and nostalgic, I can very well imagine what will happen when one gets to see the complete documentary.
