Trailer for Janis Joplin Documentary ‘Janis: Little Girl Blue’

Amy Berg’s Film

The teaser trailer for Janis: Little Girl Blue, a documentary about singer Joplin that features exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage, was released Thursday.

Recently announced by FilmRise, Amy Berg’s (Deliver Us from Evil) new film will open in limited release on November 27th, going wider in December. The upcoming doc about one of the music industry’s most beloved and tortured figures had its world premiere in September at the Venice Film Festival and will get its US broadcast premiere on PBS’s “American Masters.”

The film offers a personal look at the Texas-born free spirit who came into her own in San Francisco, with anecdotes from a number of famous faces, such as Dick Cavett among others.

Check out the teaser and poster for the film below.

The fans will have to sink their teeth into this, while waiting for the long-gestating Janis Joplin biopic by Jean-Marc Vallee (Wild) that has lined up Amy Adams to star as the rock legend.

Amy Berg’s  Joplin Documentary

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 1971 at age 27. With “Janis: Little Girl Blue,” Oscar-nominated director Amy 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.
