Watch The First Official Clip From The Amy Winehouse Documentary

Hear the late singer's manager detail her songwriting process.

In the first official clip from "Amy," the upcoming documentary about Amy Winehouse, the late singer's manager discusses the evolution of her songwriting process.

"We'd recorded quite a few demo recordings, and I started to talk about whether she ever considered writing," says Nick Shymansky in the nearly minute-long clip. "She said she's not sure about writing songs, but she's written a lot of poems. She knew full well she'd been writing songs, but they were very personal songs."

The teaser features footage of Amy joking, laughing, and smoking a cigarette, and offers a glimpse at some of her handwritten lyrics. Amy can also be heard singing in the background while Shymansky speaks.

Winehouse died in 2011 at the age of 27, amidst a notoriously public struggle with drugs and alcohol. Last month, the singer's family blasted "Amy" for being "misleading," and expressed their wish to "disassociate" from the Asif Kapadia- directed film.

"Amy" is set to be released July 3 in the U.K. and will be screened this month at the Cannes Film Festival.
