Asif Kapadia's forthcoming documentary charting the life of singer Amy Winehouse has been garnering rave reviews on the festival circuit, and its London gala premiere will be Tuesday 30 June, with numerous cinemas tied into a satellite broadcasting deal where the Q&A and exclusive footage will be beamed out to other audiences.
See details below:
Multiple-award-winning documentarian Asif Kapadia (Senna) has created this full-access film about Amy Winehouse, the extraordinary musician who died in 2011 at the age of 27. Eschewing talking-head interviews, the film uses 100% archival footage – even when presenting newly recorded interviews with Winehouse’s friends, family and collaborators – and also features previously unreleased tracks and images. The result reveals a brilliant artist in all her complicated fragility.
A special preview of AMY, broadcast live from the London Gala Premiere to cinemas nationwide.
Featuring an intro from the red carpet and a post film celebration of the talent and legacy of Amy Winehouse with director Asif Kapadia and special guests. The evening will also feature exclusive, never seen before footage.
