Back in 2011, the music industry was rocked by the tragic, but sadly not unexpected, news of the death of Amy Winehouse at the young age of 27. Now Senna director Asif Kapadia has decided to paint a portrait of the late singer, with a focus on her meteoric rise to fame, and how she didn't expect so much fame, and therefore wasn't equipped to handle it. A24 picked up the documentary for distribution in the United States (it's their first doc they'll distribute), and the teaser trailer has just arrived with a montage of archived clips, interview snippets and foreshadowing quotes about the tragedy that was waiting all along. Watch below!
Here's the teaser trailer for Asif Kapadia's Amy from Altitude Film:
Amy is directed by Asif Kapadia (Senna). The documentary looks at the tragically short life story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, the documentary shows that Winehouse's huge success resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel right up until her death in 2011. The film is already set to debut in the United Kingdom this summer on July 3rd, but A24 hasn't set a release date in the United States yet. Interested?
Her early album Frank was really good, Ronson helped make her more pop, but the last few years of her life were like a car crash in slow motion. There seemed to be very little support, even some of the performances she made where she could barely walk and they still played the music. Sad.

To be honest, I would rather not watch this. I like her music. I understand she had some serious struggles in her life. But I will probably end up liking her music less after seeing all of her drug use.

Overated IMO and no need to show us her druggie life.
