Film synopsis:

Directed by Oscar® nominee Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil, West of Memphis ) "Janis: Little Girl Blue" is moving and insightful film reveals Janis Joplin in her most genuine, and rawest, form. The narration is in Joplin's own words, from letters that she wrote over the years, as read by Southern-born musician/actor Chan Marshall, a/k/a Cat Power. The film depicts Joplin’s evolution into a star, encompassing soul-stirring concert sequences, studio footage, and interviews with music industry veterans, collaborators and close friends such as Clive Davis, filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker, Kris Kristofferson, founding Grateful Dead member Bob Weir, and Joplin's younger siblings, Laura and Michael Joplin.

(Dir. Amy Berg, USA, 2015 103 min.)
