Dad mak­ing own film on Amy

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

AMY Wine­house’s fa­ther says he is shoot­ing his own film about the life and death of his daugh­ter ( pic­tured).

Mitch Wine­house, who has been crit­i­cal of the re­cent doc­u­men­tary made by di­rec­tor Asif Ka­pa­dia, said he was work­ing with her for­mer fiance Reg Traviss on the pro­ject.

He said Ka­pa­dia’s film, Amy, was “flawed”. “We’re mak­ing an al­ter­na­tive film, Reg and I,” he said.

“We’re go­ing to in­vite ev­ery­one that’s spo­ken on the other film and we’re not go­ing to edit it — like they’ve edited me — and we’re go­ing to tell the truth about Amy’s life be­cause this ( Ka­pa­dia’s doc­u­men­tary) is not.”

The singer, who died of al­co­hol poi­son­ing in 2011 aged 27 af­ter a public strug­gle with drink and drugs, scored hits in­clud­ing Re­hab and Back To Black in her short ca­reer.
