The undisputed queen sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, Janis Joplin broke into the boys club and out of the stifling good-girl feminity of post-war America. With her incredible wall-of-sound vocals, Janis Joplin was the voice of a generation. There is Janis the lesbian, the misfit, the rebel, the conformer, the junky, the drinker, the genius and the lonely woman. This moving documentary shows that she constructed many of these images herself as coats of armour to help her cope and protect a vulnerable self. The wild clothes and living, even her 'cackling' laugh were but tools to divert the truth. The real Janis remained unseen by most, glimpsed by only a few. Video footage recorded by John Cooke, road manager of the band Big Brother And The Holding Company, gives a rare glimpse of Janis away from the stage and the media.
