Amy named Best Documentary at 2016 BAFTAs
Featuring unseen archival footage and unheard songs, Amy tells the story of the late singer of “ Back to Black” and “Rehab”, who died in 2011. From her first gigs in English pubs to her rise to fame, the film paints a stunning portray of a fallen music star. It was directed by Asif Kapadia, who won the best documentary Bafta in 2012 for Senna.
For Universal Music UK chairman David Joseph, who also is one of the film’s executive producers, AMY is a very complicated and tender movie: “It tackles lots of things about family and media, fame, addiction, but most importantly it captures the very heart of what Amy was about, which is an amazing person and a true musical genius.”
The film is nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary Feature category at the forthcoming Academy Awards is already a hit with both critics and general audiences alike as it has already beaten box office records for a British documentary.
