Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27.

With JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE, Oscar-nominated director Amy J. Berg (DELIVER US FROM EVIL, WEST OF MEMPHIS) 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 a series of letters she wrote to her parents over the years, many of them made public here for the first time (and read by Southern-born indie rock star/actor Chan Marshall, also known as Cat Power). Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her meteoric rise and untimely demise changed music forever.

“It’s the satisfying feature-length overview that Joplin’s brief, fiercely brilliant career has long merited.”
– VARIETY

“There’s plenty of wonderfully wild onstage footage and charming, behind-the-scenes goofing around here, and the movie is a fan’s appreciation of how much exuberant fun Joplin could be on and offstage, of her ferocious work ethic and mischievous spirit.”
– NPR

“It’s the focus on the art and the artist, and not on her demise, that makes Amy Berg’s documentary Janis so electrifying.”
– THEWRAP

“Berg does paper illuminating personal observations throughout, before landing a satisfying emotional punch at the end.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Amy Berg’s deeply sympathetic documentary on Janis Joplin — a singer whose shredded wail tapped reservoirs of pain — gets so much right, it feels like a major act of cultural excavation.”
– TIME OUT

“For anyone who just wants “the Janis Joplin story,” told from start to finish-with plenty of examples of why anyone should care about the untimely death of a substance-abuser-Little Girl Blue is the way to go.”
