Joan Baez I Am A Noise

Joan Baez I Am A Noise is an unusually intimate psychological portrait of legendary folksinger and activist Joan Baez. Neither a conventional biopic nor a traditional concert film, this immersive documentary shifts back and forth through time as it follows Joan on her final tour and delves into her extraordinary archive, including newly discovered home movies, diaries, artwork, therapy tapes, and audio recordings. Throughout the film, Baez is remarkably revealing about her life on and off stage-from her lifelong emotional struggles to her civil rights work with MLK and a heartbreaking romance with a youngBob Dylan. A searingly honest look at a living legend, this film is a compelling and deeply personal exploration of an iconic artist who has never told the full truth of her life, as she experienced it, until now.

2023, 113 Minutes, USA, Directed by Karen O’Connor, Miri Navasky, and Maeve O’Boyle
