Description

WHAT: Into Film is pleased to present a special screening of AMY plus Q&A with its multi award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA, THE WARRIOR) as part of BAFTA's 70th anniversary BAFTA debuts tour.

WHEN: Monday 3rd July 2017 12.45pm-3.45pm

WHERE: HOME, Manchester

Synopsis: This remarkable documentary tells the life story of the late singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. Using a variety of film footage – archive, mobile phone, news, home video – we are with Amy from shy young teenager awkwardly messing around at parties, to international sensation and her struggles with fame, eating disorders and addiction. With contributions from a wide range of people close to Amy, as well as an effective filmmaking device of overlaying visuals with many of her lyrics, the result is both vibrant and intimate. All the while, her extraordinary voice is heard throughout, resulting in a sombre but heartfelt tribute to one of the 21st century’s most significant cultural figures.

Certificate: 15

Language: English

Length: 2 hrs 8 mins
