Joan Baez I Am A Noise

Milwaukee Film Festival

Neither a conventional biopic nor a traditional concert film, this immersive documentary is a visual memoir anchored by Joan Baez's extraordinary archive, including newly discovered home movies, diaries, artwork, and audio recordings. A searingly honest look at a living legend, Baez is remarkably revealing about her life on and off the stage creating a deeply personal exploration of an iconic artist who has never told the full truth of her life until now.
