10 pm – FILM 

Amy, Asif Kapadia, United Kingdom, 2015
Original version in English with Spanish subtitles

Documentary featuring hitherto-unseen images and interviews with the famous British singer Amy Winehouse, who died in 2011 at the age of 27 from cardiac arrest caused by drug and alcohol abuse. Although she had only released two albums, her magnificent voice and natural talent for jazz and soul had already turned Amy into an international star. Fame, the tabloid press, music industry interests and her own circle of family and friends all played a relevant role in the closing chapters in the life of the girl behind the name.

Kapadia spares no detail in his account of a story in which economic interests and media pressure led to the solitude and tragic end of a gifted singer and musician. A declaration of love as well as a carefully-crafted documentary, the film avoids both facile sensationalism and the temptation to turn Amy into the innocent victim of cruel machinations.

Not recommended for spectators under 12 years
