A very quick heads up: Until the end of the month, you can stream free online Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue, a new documentary from PBS’ American Masters series. Writes PBS:
The broadcast features Amy Berg’s never-before-seen extended film cut with additional archival performance footage and new interviews with Janice Joplin’s sister Laura Joplin and musicians influenced by Janis: Alecia Moore (a.k.a. Pink), Juliette Lewis, Melissa Etheridge and the film’s narrator, Chan Marshall, who is best known as indie rock star Cat Power.
The doc runs 102 minutes, and just started airing on television on PBS this week. Enjoy.
h/t goes to Elana and Robin.
