Asif Kapadia’s Defining Moment

View the gallery

“I never met Amy Winehouse. I never saw her live. I was interviewing people, asking them questions and getting information, but there was a tipping point that happened in the process, when people were talking to me and I found myself correcting them,” the director of the documentary Amy says. “I realized I knew more than the people who knew her; I was filling in blanks. That’s the moment when you realize, OK, now you are in that position where you know almost as much as anyone about someone you never met.”

Kapadia wears a suit by Theory from Bloomingdale’s and a shirt by Pal Zileri.
