MUMBAI: MN+ celebrates and remembers the life of the legendary singer Amy Winehouse on her 35th birthday with the Indian television premiere of the Academy award-winning British documentary film ‘Amy’ on 14 September at 9 pm.
The film is a part of the channel’s ongoing Season 3 of ‘Pathbreakers’, a specially curated property that showcases 50 critically acclaimed and genre-defining movies over 50 days.
6 time Grammy award winner, Amy Winehouse was one of the biggest music icons in British history. A revered and talented pop star whose musical appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries and shot her to stardom, ironically, it was her chaotic personal life that stole headlines. Her tragic death at the young age of 27 left the world devastated.
‘Amy’ delves into the life and death of the singer, putting the spotlight on her struggle with substance abuse, before and after her career blossomed, and which eventually caused her death.
Directed by Asif Kapadia, ‘Amy’ decodes Winehouse’s journey from being a media darling to becoming the subject of vicious tabloid headlines. Her strong personality, complicated marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil and the love-hate relationship with the press are reflected in her deep, expressive soul music.
