Event Details

Never before seen Janis Joplin short films–John Byrne Cooke experienced the 1960s within the music of the counterculture. As a musician and rock road-manager during that turbulent decade, John was taking pictures the entire time. His subjects span the transition from folk music to rock, including Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, traditional musicians like Doc Watson, Bill Monroe, Mississippi John Hurt, and many more.

While traveling with Janis Joplin as her road manager, Cooke filmed Janis and her band members on Fuji Single-8 film. This film has color superior to Kodak Super-8 and is undimmed by the passage of 40 years. John’s footage provides a unique and intimate view of Janis offstage as well as on. Approximately — minutes of this film has been transferred to video in scene-by-scene wet-gate transfers
