"Amy, the girl behind the name"
(2015, Shown in the original English, with Spanish subtitles.), directed by Asif Kapadia.

A documentary about the famous British singer Amy Winehouse, featuring previously unreleased footage and interviews with the star, who died of cardiac arrest in July 2011 at the age of 27, due to her excesses with drugs and alcohol, aggravated by bulimia. Winner of 6 Grammy Awards, Amy Winehouse had had a difficult childhood but an enormous natural talent for jazz and soul and a prodigious voice, and quickly became a world star.
This sensitive and moving documentary is a tour de force of editing, using scraps of interviews, unofficial photos and videos, home movies by family and friends, to create a layered and thoughtful portrait of a young woman who became a victim of her own success, and a tragic emblem of the times we live in. A great film.
