Joan Baez: I am noise

It’s mosaic as memoir as the filmmakers incorporate archival riches: home movies, journals and all sorts of recordings to capture a life in music and in spirited activism. ” Ray Pride Newcity

Joan Baez 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 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 young Bob 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.
