★★★★★ "a tragic masterpiece" The Guardian
The screening on Saturday 1 August at 8.20pm features a Q&A with the film's director Asif Kapadia, hosted by ICA Film & Cinema Manager Nico Marzano.
Multiple-award-winning documentarian Asif Kapadia has reassembled the team behind his stunning Senna to create a full-access film about Amy Winehouse, the extraordinary musician who died in 2011 at the age of 27.
The documentary features interviews with some of her closest friends, family, former bandmates, management, producers and collaborators. As with Senna, however, Kapadia eschews talking-head interviews, sticking to his preferred format of using 100% archival footage, even when presenting newly recorded audio material from the participants. The film also features unheard tracks and unseen footage, some of it sourced from Winehouse’s closest friends.
Revealing a brilliant artist in all her complicated fragility, Amy will undoubtedly not only speak to her existing fan base, but also win over a whole new audience wishing to engage with an affectionate and frank portrait of a talent who died too soon.
There was a special preview screening of the film on 30 June. On 14 July, there was a Q&A with co-producer George Pank following the 9pm screening.
