Marking ten years since the death of one of UK’s brightest music stars, Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On (w/t) will celebrate the life and legacy of singer Amy Winehouse.
Primarily told through the eyes of Amy’s mother Janis, the film will offer a new, personal insight into aspects of the singer’s life that have been as yet unknown to the public.
Janis lives with the Multiple Sclerosis, a condition that affects her memory. In order to preserve her memories of Amy, she has been motivated to make this timely documentary combining never-before-seen personal family footage of Amy and features from the BBC archive.
Aided by family, friends and those who knew Amy closely, the film will present a powerful, sensitive and female-driven account of the life, loves and legacy of one of Britain’s best-loved musical talents.
Janis Winehouse commented: “I don't feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy.”
Commissioning Editors Max Gogarty and Rachel Davies added: “Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On promises to be a celebratory and intimate portrayal of one of the brightest musical talents the UK has ever seen. Whilst being a celebration of her musical genius and featuring rare and unheard performances, it will also offer a reinterpretation of the prevailing narrative around her rise and fall, told by those closest to her."
Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On (w/t) is a one-hour film produced by Curious Films for BBC Two.
