Amy Winehouse

Organisers of this year’s East End Film Festival, which runs at various London venues from 3-8 Jul, have announced that the event will open with the British premiere of director Maurice Linnane’s Amy Winehouse documentary, ‘Arena: Amy Winehouse’.

The film, which centres on the late singer’s admiration for her soul/jazz predecessors – not least Mahalia Jackson, Sarah Vaughan and Ray Charles – features rarely-seen concert and archive footage. It will be screened at St Anne’s Church in Limehouse during an evening of live music and “special guests”.
