VIDEO The new AMY Winehouse documentary trailer is haunting

Amy Winehouse documentary

We couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary AMY from the production team that created the amazing doc Senna. Today the first official trailer for the film was released, and it does not disappoint.

The documentary will feature previously unseen footage of Amy from throughout her short life, and the trailer features Amy Winehouse talking about whether or not she wanted to be famous, if that was even a possibility, and if she thought she could handle it — all while an eerily slowed down take of “Back to Black” plays:

“Singing has always been important to me,” Amy can be heard saying in the clip as old video footage of her at a very young age plays, “but I never thought I’d end up singing or be a singer. I just thought ‘I’m lucky that it’s something I can always do if I want to,’ I’m just lucky like that.”

She then says of her songs, “I wouldn’t write anything unless it was directly personal to me just because I wouldn’t be able to tell the story right.”

Then we get Amy’s take on fame. “I’m not a girl trying to be a star or trying to be anything other than a musician,” she says. A man is heard asking, “How big do you think you’re going to be?” and Amy humbly replies, “I don’t. I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous.” She then gets frighteningly prophetic about her ability to cope with the attention. “I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad. You know what I mean? I would go mad.”

As the multiple video clips morph into Amy’s face a man asks, “Is it hard to know who you can trust?” “Yeah,” Amy says.

AMY premieres in the UK on July 3rd. It was recently announced that A24 has acquired US distribution rights and they plan on a theatrical release in America some time this summer.
