Whatever genre of music tickles your fancy, your ears must certainly perk up when you hear the unmistakable powerhouse voice of the inimitable Janis Joplin. The Texas-born free spirit was notoriously Bohemian in every sense of the word, and though she met an untimely death at the mere age of twenty-seven, her legacy lives on.
In Amy Berg’s new film, “Janis: Little Girl Blue,” she explores the paradigms behind the songs and the legend, with anecdotes from a number of famous faces, notably Dick Cavett among others. The documentary will make you yearn for the ‘60s, thanks to Berg’s accurate depiction of one of the most important eras in rock n roll history.
Check out the trailer for the film below, and read our review from TIFF here. “Janis: Little Girl Blue” opens in limited release on November 27th.
