TUTOR NEWS: OSCAR WIN for LFA Tutor Asif Kapadia
29 February 2016

Many congratulations to LFA guest tutor, Asif Kapadia and his team for their deserved win for 'Amy' at the Oscars last night. 

Kapadia’s film examines how Winehouse’s addictions to alcohol and drugs intensified in fame’s glare, culminating in her death from alcohol poisoning in 2011. It was the favourite to win from early on in the awards race, and won the top documentary prizes at a clutch of ceremonies, including the Baftas and Producers Guild Awards. 

'Amy'  is the UK's highest grossing non-fiction film and marks Kapadia’s first Oscar win, from his first nomination.
