Janis: Little Girl Blue
Not yet reviewed.
JANIS JOPLIN is one of the most revered and iconic rock and roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed creative new trails before her death in 1970, aged 27. JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE examines Joplin’s story in depth for the first time on film, presenting an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist. Joplin’s own words tell much of the film’s story through letters written to her parents, many of them made public for the first time (narrated by musician Chan Marshall).
This correspondence is only one element of the stunning, previously unseen material on show, including new footage of Joplin in concert, in the studio, and her emotional return to Texas for her High School reunion, as well as interviews with family, childhood friends and musical colleagues, which provide depth and texture to this remarkable story. JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose surprising rise and sudden demise changed music forever.
