TRAILER: AMY WINEHOUSE DOCUMENTARY

AMY tells the story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words.

The documentary, which will be in international theaters this Summer, showcases and shines a light on Amy’s mind frame before the fame. It features extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks from the fallen star.

Being that I am a fan of her music and still listen to it to this day, I think this is a must watch. From her rise to stardom to her tragic death in July 2011 at the age of 27, her impact on the music game is definitely still felt.

From the press release:

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.

TRAILER: IRIS APFEL DOCUMENTARY (BY ALBERT MAYSLES)

Iris Apfel is a 93 year-old fashion maven who I’ve been fascinated with for the past few years. Her accessory game is crazy and even though she is close to 100, she is still going after her dreams.

While living in NYC for 4 years, I tried many times to meet her but it never happened. However, I was lucky enough to snag a few of her vintage pieces when she had a closet sale last year with One Kings Lane. I’ll blog about those soon!

Anyway, I was delighted to find out this week that her 2013 documentary has an official release date. Recorded by the late great Albert Maysles (from Grey Gardens fame) this is a definite must see.

Check out the trailer above and view Iris in select theaters April 29th from Magnolia Pictures.
