The tragically short life of Grammy award-winning singer Amy Winehouse will be the subject of a new documentary set to premiere in July, according to The Telegraph.

Amy Winehouse's brief life will be the subject of a documentary directed by Asif Kapadia, director of the 2010 Bafta-winning film Senna and produced by James Gay-Rees, producer of Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

The film, which is called Amy, has been in production for the past two years and will feature unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks.

A poster for the film has also been released, featuring her trademark mole piercing and Daddy's Girl tattoo:

Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 after a quick and public descent into addiction.
