MOMENTS | Rehash: #TBT Watch the Trailer for the Amy Winehouse Documentary, ‘AMY’
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
Grab a box of tissues because you need to watch the trailer for AMY right now. Amy Winehouse gorgeously blended her deep vocals with profoundly personal songwriting and a mix of musical genres—jazz, rhythm and blues, reggae, and pop. Four years after her untimely death from alcohol poisoning, the internationally adored and acclaimed artist is being remembered in a two-hour documentary set to debut in British theaters July 3rd. Directed by BAFTA-winning director Asif Kapaida (best known for 2010’s Senna), the documentary will tell the story of the London singer’s life and music via archived and previously unheard tracks.
There’s a moment in the trailer, where Winehouse, when asked to predict how famous she will become, replies with a frank, “I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous.” She was, of course, incorrect in her estimation, and it’s all the more heartbreaking when she says, “I don’t think I could handle [fame]. I would probably go mad.”
Watch the trailer for AMY below, then have a throwback moment and listen to your fav Amy Winehouse tracks.
