Amy marks the Senna filmmaker’s third doc and tells the story of the British star, who died from alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, “in her own words, plus those of her earliest friends.” It also incorporates previously unseen archival footage and unheard music.
James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Gift Shop) produced the film through On The Corner with Universal Music serving as coproducer. Cinetic Media is handling domestic sales. A U.S. distributor has not been announced.
A minute-long trailer for the film debuted at Universal Music Group’s pre-Grammy brunch in February, and “featured photos and video of the late singer as well as audio from an interview where she talked about becoming famous,” according to Billboard.
