    It’s hard to believe it’s already been four years since Amy Winehouse’s untimely death. To mark the occasion, British documentary filmmaker Asif Kapadia has made Amy, a film about the late singer’s brief, stormy time on earth. The two-hour documentary, which hits U.K. theaters on July 3, will use archival footage—including rare interviews and performances—to tell the heartbreaking story of a woman whose talent was so great that it ultimately led to her demise.

    In the movie’s haunting first trailer, we see a young, pre-fame Winehouse being interviewed, as a demo of “Back to Black” echoes in the background. “I’m not a girl trying to be a star or be anything other than a musician,” she tells her interviewer. At that point he asks, “How big you do you think you’re going to be?” And Winehouse replies, “I don’t. I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous.” At that point, flashbulbs go off and the footage shifts to Winehouse in her later years, as her voiceover continues: “I don’t think I could handle it, I would probably go mad.”
