Joan Baez I Am A Noise

I Am A Noise is an unusually intimate psychological portrait of legendary folk singer and activist Joan Baez. Neither a conventional biopic nor a traditional concert film, this immersive documentary is a visual memoir that follows Baez on her farewell tour as she comes to the end of a sixty year career. Moving back and forth through time, the film brings the past to life through 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 Martin Luther King Jr. to a heartbreaking romance with a young Bob Dylan. A searingly honest look at a living legend, this film is a deeply personal exploration of an iconic artist who has never told the full truth of her life, as she experienced it, until now.
