Amy Winehouse Documentary Features Unseen Footage

FUSE TV - Amy Winehouse Documentary Features Unseen Footage

The all-too-short life of Amy Winehouse had high highs (universal critical acclaim, five Grammy awards, multiplatinum albums) and low lows (drug and alcohol abuse, rehab and multiple arrests). It's the kind of stuff you see in movies.

Now, according to THR, the soul singer's story will be turned into a documentary with "archival footage never seen by the public." 

The still-untitled project is led by British film director Asif Kapadia, who's won multiple British Academy of Film and Television Art (BAFTA) Awards—aka the UK's Oscar Awards—for his movies and docs.

"Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent," Kapadia said in a statement. "But tragically, Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle. As a society we celebrated her huge success, but then we were quick to judge her failings."

He added, "This is an incredibly modern, emotional and relevant film that has the power to capture the zeitgeist and shine a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few films can."

The doc will be shopped around at next month's Cannes Film Market to get monetary backing.

Before we see the previously-unreleased Winehouse footage (What will it show? A happy Amy? Drunk Amy? Bloody Amy?), her legacy continues in another film: The Great GatsbyBeyonce and Andre 3000 covered her sophomore album title track "Back to Black" in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming film.
