Amy Winehouse Documentary To Be Released This Summer

Amy lives on.

Amy Winehouse’s legacy lives on and will be remembered in a new documentary called “Amy: The girl behind the name.” Directed by “Senna” filmmaker Asif Kapadia, the project will explore the rollercoaster ride and career of the famed British crooner almost 4 years since her untimely death.

Find out when you’ll be able to catch Amy after the cut:

Aside from exploring the singer’s personal battles, the documentary is expected to include previously unheard recordings and unseen archival footage. Deadline reports that the film will be released July 3 via the UK’s Altitude Film Distribution, but no release date has been settled for the United States.

Recent films based around the stars of yesterday, including Aaliyah and Whitney Houston, haven’t received much support from their loved ones, but it looks like the Winehouse family is totally backing “Amy.” In a statement for the film, the loved ones emphasized that the filmmakers behind “Senna” offered a cinematic take on the singer’s life that accuracy depicts her story.

The Winehouse family have been approached with many proposals for a documentary about Amy’s life and work. We treated the subject with great care, with a desire to tell her story right. The award winning producers of “Senna” presented a vision that would look at Amy’s story sensitively, honestly, without sensationalizing her. We want this to be a tribute to her musical legacy.”

An official trailer for the film is expected to drop via the project’s website soon.
