The project is to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the singer’s death
angel- The second part of the BBC will broadcast a new documentary “Amy Winehouse: Ten Years” to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death. This documentary, commissioned by BBC Two and BBC Music, will mainly tell from the perspective of Winehouse’s mother, Janis, published by “Rolling Stone” magazine.
Janis said in a statement: “I don’t think the whole world knows the real Amy, the Amy I raised. I look forward to the opportunity to provide an understanding of her roots and have a deeper understanding of the real Amy. Understanding.” Janis’s view of Winehouse “is often different from the narrative we have said before.”
Janis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2003 and was inspired to make a documentary before the condition “threaten to deprive her of Amy’s memory”. Janis previously talked about the life of Winehouse in the book “Amy in Love: A Mother’s Story” in 2014.
The documentary will also include interviews with other family and friends of the singer, and will analyze her life and career at the age of 27 when she died in 2011.
Curious Films executive producer Dov Freedman (Dov Freedman) said in a statement: “Amy is a true music icon. To help those closest to Amy regain history, We are extremely proud.”
In 2015, director Asif Kapadia won the Oscar for Best Documentary for his film “Amy”. The singer’s family kept their distance from the documentary, calling it “missed an opportunity to celebrate her life and talents, and it is misleading and contains some basic fallacies.” Winehouse’s father Mitch said of the movie: “When I watched this movie for the first time, I felt very sad. Amy would be furious. This is not what she wanted.”
