After screening at Venice, TIFF and more, Amy Berg’s long-awaited Janis Joplin documentary “Janis: Little Girl Blue” finally has a triumphant debut trailer. Set to the stripped down version of the crooner’s own “Mercedes Benz,” the trailer teases the doc’s impressive archival footage and Cat Power voiceover narration.
A time capsule of sorts, the documentary uses rarely-seen audio and video footage to remember the groundbreaking and tragic rock n’ roll figure. “Janis: Little Girl Blue” is directed and written by Oscar nominee Berg (“Deliver Us From Evil”) and produced by Alex Gibney (“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief”).
FilmRise acquired the movie last week and will begin rolling it out on November 27 in New York City.
