Synopsis

Directed by Asif Kapadia. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. A once-in-a-generation talent and pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy Winehouse wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gift to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge succes, however, resulted in renlentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy's troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.
