Dad making own film on Amy
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.
