Janis: Little Girl Blue
Friday, November 27, 2015 - Wednesday, January 27, 2016
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1971 at age 27. With JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE, Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil, West of Memphis) examines Joplins story in depth for the first time on film, presenting an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist. Joplins own words tell much of the films story through a series of letters she wrote to her parents over the years, many of them made public here for the first time and read by Southern-born indie rock star/actor Chan Marshall, also known as Cat Power. Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her meteoric rise and untimely demise changed music forever.
