Here's Your Chance to Attend the NYC Premiere of "Janis: Little Girl Blue"

Music fans and rock n' roll lovers everywhere are about to get a closer glimpse at one of music's most legendary artists, Janis Joplin.

A new documentary titled "Janis: Little Girl Blue," which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September, is set to be released in select theaters this week. 


"She took a flag and made a place for women in rock n' roll," shares one of the subjects narrating in the first opening scene of the trailer. The trailer presents a series of cuts, from live performances to interviews and photographs of Joplin, to the backdrop of some of her most famous records.

Described as a "hypnotizing exploration into one of America's most powerful music idols," by, the film seeks to fill fans and curious audiences in on the missing pieces of the very large and complex puzzle that was Joplin's short but full life. The musician died at the age of 27 of a drug overdose.

Watch the full trailer below.

The film will premiere in New York City on November 27 and then expand in December.
