Neither a conventional biopic nor a traditional concert film, Joan Baez: I Am Noise is a raw and intimate portrait of the legendary folk singer and activist that 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. 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.

“This elaborate documentary navigates adroitly through the professional and the personal aspects of a very full life.” ~ Todd McCarthy, Deadline

“Anyone with an interest in the key artists of the counterculture movement will find much to appreciate here.” ~ David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
