Amy Winehouse documentary Amy has premiered an emotional new trailer following its Cannes Film Festival debut.

The film had its premiered over the weekend in the south of France and received positive reviews, with critics calling the documentary "stunning".

Director Asif Kapadia, who also led the Senna documentary, uses previously-unseen archive footage and unheard tracks to tell Winehouse's story in her own words.

Winehouse rose to fame with her 2003 debut album Frank. Her 2006 follow-up Back to Black featured the hit single 'Rehab' and won Winehouse five Grammys in 2008.

The singer battled drug and alcohol problems and often had a turbulent personal life. She died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Her father Mitch Winehouse has voiced his concerns about the documentary, claiming that comments  he made during production have been edited.

Amy will open in UK cinemas on July 3.
