Joan Baez: I Am a Noise

Since her debut at the age of 18, musician and activist Joan Baez has been on stage for over 60 years. The film follows the 82-year-old singer on her farewell tour across America and Europe. Baez takes stock of her life with sincerity, from her involvement in the civil rights movement, her friendship with Martin Luther King and her heartbreaking romance with Bob Dylan. She not only shares her successes, but also speaks openly about the unknown aspects of her life and the inner demons that have tormented her since her youth. The film interweaves a wealth of previously unseen archive footage with in-depth discussions and behind-the-scenes moments from the tour. A tribute to an icon who has never fully revealed the truth about her life, until now.
