The first trailer for Amy, a documentary about the late soul singer Amy Winehouse, has been released.

Directed by BAFTA-winner Asif Kapadia, who also directed 2010’s biopic Senna, the two-hour film tells the story of one of Britain’s most tragic warnings about the pitfalls of fame.

It brings to light unseen archive footage compiled from various points in her life and career, as well as previously unheard tracks.

Amy will open in the U.K. on July 3rd and will be released in US theaters sometime in 2015 via A24.

Watch the teaser trailer below.

Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.

Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.

Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.
