OTHER VOICES AMY WINEHOUSE DOCUMENTARY
TO BE SCREENED AT EAST END FILM FESTIVAL NEXT WEEK
The 11th East End Film Festival (EEFF) commences this Sunday, July 1st, with the festival officially opening on Tuesday July 3rd with the UK Premiere of Arena: Amy Winehouse, The Day She Came To Dingle (a BBC Arena/Other Voices co-production), a documentary probing the legacy of this musical icon. With exclusive concert and archive footage, this film highlights her unique talent and explores her deep affection for jazz, soul and gospel.
Other Voices director Maurice Linnane’s film is anchored by the incredible concert footage recorded during the making of the internationally acclaimed Other Voices music television series in 2006, when Amy performed in the small and perfectly formed St. James’ Church in Dingle, Co. Kerry, just as her career balanced on the brink of worldwide recognition. Her stripped down renditions of You Know I’m No Good, Rehab, Love Is A Losing Game, Me and Mr. Jones, Tears Dry On Their Own and Back To Black are augmented with an interview she did for Other Voices during her brief visit to the Irish fishing town, footage of some of Amy’s musical influences and words with some of the everyday people she met with in Dingle that day.
Arena: Amy Winehouse, The Day She Came To Dingle will be screened at the EEFF in the beautiful St. Anne’s Church in Limehouse. A celebration of music, this red carpet gala screening will be accompanied by performances by an orchestra and choir and some very special guests. There will also be a Q&A, chaired by Caspar Llewellyn Smith, with director Maurice Linnane, Arena’s Anthony Wall and Other Voices’ Philip King, followed by an after party in one of Amy’s favourite local watering holes.
