Amy Berg directs this documentary about American singer-songwriter Janis Joplin.
The film chronicles the life of the influential artist from her conservative, Texan upbringing to her breakthrough in the 1960s music scene.
Following her decision to pursue a music career full-time, Joplin joined the blues rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company and shortly after embarked upon her own highly successful and influential solo career, which she continued until her untimely death at the age of 27 in 1970.
The film also shines a light on the artist's private life as fellow musician Cat Power narrates a selection of letters written by Joplin to her friends and family.
