FHFF Director Series - Janis: Little Girl Blue

Janis:  Little Girl Blue, Friday Harbor Film Festival’s next offering in The Director Series, will appeal to lovers of music, especially rock & roll. This film documents Janis Joplin's evolution into a star from letters that she wrote to her friends, family, and collaborators. One of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, she thrilled audiences and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1971 at age 27. Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg examines Joplin’s story in depth, presenting an intimate portrait of a complicated and driven artist.  Narrated by musician Cat Power, the film uses Joplin’s own words to 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. Amy Berg stated: “The only way to tell Janis’ story was through Janis’ voice. Her letters show the vulnerable artist, daughter, and lover Janis was in her short but impactful life.” Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her meteoric rise and untimely demise changed music forever.
