Most of us are familiar with the iconic Janis Joplin, troubled wild child of the San Francisco music scene of the ‘60s who died tragically of an overdose at the age of 27. Aiming to understand the woman as much as the musician, documentarian Amy Berg spent seven years creating this intimate portrait of a complicated and contradictory artist. Starting with her childhood in Port Arthur, Texas, where Joplin struggled to fit in and was the victim of bullying, the film explores the roots of Joplin’s musical style and rebellious exuberance as well as her driving need for love and approval. It also revisits a San Francisco that brought both freedom and temptation. Deploying outstanding archival material—some of it never seen before—in addition to compelling interviews with friends and family, Berg gives Joplin her own voice through self-aware, reflective and often hopeful personal letters, read with a bright sweetness by Chan Marshall (Cat Power).
