Amy_300Asif Kapadia’s documentary on the six-time Grammy-winner will feature previously unseen archive footage and seek to tell the London performer’s tragic story in her own words.

Amy Winehouse died from alcoholic poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian writes:  A star is born — all over again. Asif Kapadia’s documentary study of the great British soul queen Amy Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27, is stunningly moving and powerful: intimate, passionate, often shocking, and almost mesmerically absorbing.

It is an overwhelming story, and despite everyone knowing the ending, it is as gripping as a thriller: Kapadia has fashioned and shaped it with masterly flair.
