Janis: Little Girl Blue
One of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, Janis Joplin is a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27. This film examines her story in depth for the first time on film, presenting an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven and often beleaguered artist. Janis's own words tell much of the film's story through a series of letters she wrote to her parents over the years, many of them made public here for the first time. A powerhouse when she sang, her recordings have never left the radio or the hearts of rock fans worldwide and this portrait offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose surprising rise and sudden demise changed music forever.
