Joan Baez: I Am A Noise
CAST: Joan Baez, Mimi Farina, Bob Dylan, David Harris DIRECTOR: Miri Navasky, Maeve O'Boyle, Karen O'Connor
"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 is more of a visualby Joan's extraordinary archive, including newly discovered home movies, diaries, artwork, and audio recordings. Baez is remarkably revealing about her life on and off stage - from 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, the film is a deeply personal exploration of an iconic artist who has never told the full truth of her life until now.
...a film whose chief sin may just be that it doesn't run about a half-hour longer.Chris Willman, Variety
