The first trailer for the new Amy Winehouse documentary has been released, showing footage of the late singer at her most vulnerable.

From the award-winning team behind F1 documentary Senna, the film - which is told using unseen archival footage -  follows the singer from her rise to fame to the personal difficulties she suffered that led to her tragic death.

Footage from the trailer shows Winehouse as a young woman at the beginning of her music career answering questions about how she sees herself as an artist.

When asked how big she thinks she will be, she answers: "I don't think I'm going to be at all famous, I don't think I could handle it. I would probably go mad, do you know what I mean, I'd go mad."

Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

The singer won five Grammy Awards for her second album Back to Black, which broke records at the time of her death to become the UK’s best-selling album of the 21st century.

AMY will be released in the UK on 3 July.
