Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Joan Baez: I Am A Noise” showing Oct. 13-19 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Facing the end of a 60-year musical career, legendary singer and activist Joan Baez takes an honest look back and a deep look inward as she tries to make sense of her large, history-making life and reveals, for the first time, personal struggles she’s kept private.
“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.
“Joan Baez: I Am A Noise” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Oct. 13-19. Showtimes will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13, 14 and 15 at 7:00 p.m.; and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 16, 18 and 19 at 4:00 p.m.
Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
