Almost four years after her shocking death, Amy Winehouse is brought back to life in a moving trailer for Amy, the documentary chronicling her rise and tragic fall.

The Grammy-winning artist, who battled addiction, shot to international stardom with her 2006 single “Rehab.” Winehouse died July 23, 2011, at the age of 27, from alcohol poisoning.

In the teaser for Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia and set for a July release, a young Winehouse expresses an eerie discomfort with the idea of fame.

“How big do you think you’re going to be?” she’s asked.

“I don’t,” the soul singer replies. “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.”
