Amy documentary to screen at Glastonbury

Amy at GlastonburyThe acclaimed documentary about Amy Winehouse is to be screened at the Glastonbury Festival on Thursday, 25th June, a week ahead of its theatrical release across the UK.

Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia, will be shown on the William’s Green stage, after a Q&A with the film’s editor, Chris King.

The documentary, which received its world premiere as a Midnight Screening at last month’s Cannes Film Festival, features previously unseen archive footage, including video of the star singing happy birthday to a friend at the age of fourteen, as well as frank mobile phone messages between her and her friends.

Winehouse, who died four years ago from alcohol poisoning, at the age of 27, performed at Glastonbury in 2004, 2007 and 2008.
