Discussion to follow with director Amy Berg; a tribute concert will kick things off before the screening
Dir. Amy Berg l Documentary | U.S.A. | 2015 | 107 min.
One of the most revered and iconic rock ‘n’ roll singers of all time, Janis Joplin thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death at age 27. Through a series of letters written to her parents, Joplin's own words, voiced by Cat Power, tell much of the complicated, driven, and often beleaguered artist’s story. This portrait by Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg (Prophet’s Prey, MVFF 2015) goes far beyond its sizzling soundtrack and concert footage to offer a new understanding of a star who changed music forever.
“An elegant, affectionate and, in many ways, remarkably cheerful film.” – Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
Cinema Circus starts at 5:30 PM
