JanisJanis Joplin died in 1970 at 27, but the hard living, folk-blues singer remains a legend. Growing up, she was the antithesis of the All-American prom queen, and suffered deep emotional wounds. This fueled her talent and ambition, but no amount of artistic success and fame were able to eleviate the loneliness and the hole in her soul that ultimately lead to her overdose from heroin.

Meet the Filmmaker: Director Amy Berg, via Skype

“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.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“It grounds us so effectively in Joplin’s emotional realm as to partially rekindle the social transcendence that her voice must have represented for its owner.” – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
