Reel to Reel: Janis: Little Girl Blue

The GRAMMY Museum presents an exclusive screening of Janis: Little Girl Blue, directed by Oscar nominee Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil, West of Memphis), preceding the film's Nov. 27 theatrical release. Janis: Little Girl Blue reveals Janis Joplin in her most genuine, and rawest, form. The narration is in Joplin's own words, from letters that she wrote over the years, as read by Southern-born musician/actor Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power. The film depicts Joplin's evolution into a star, encompassing soul-stirring concert sequences, studio footage, and interviews with music industry veterans, collaborators and close friends such as Clive Davis, filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker, Kris Kristofferson, founding Grateful Dead member Bob Weir, and Joplin's younger siblings, Laura and Michael Joplin. Following the screening, Berg and Laura Joplin will participate in a discussion moderated by Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum.
