Amy Winehouse’s death by alcohol poisoning rocked Britain—and the world—in 2011, and when the documentary Amy comes out this summer right around the four-year anniversary of her death, it’s likely to make fans sad all over again.
The movie features interviews with the soul singer/songwriter from her early days, before she adopted the distinctive look so many likened to Ronnie Spector, and well before her rocky personal life became prime fodder for tabloids. In a telling moment in the teaser, an interviewer asks Winehouse how big a celebrity she thinks she’ll be. “I don’t,” she replies. “I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it—I would probably go mad.”
The documentary, directed by Asif Kapadia, is due to hit theaters on July 3 in the U.K.
