LIVE TALK: JOAN BAEZ
The 82-year-old folk music legend and activist Joan Baez visits CPH:DOX for a special evening of film and conversation at Bremen.
She had her breakthrough at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in 1959 and released her first self-titled album the following year. Here 63 years later, Joan Baez visits this year’s CPH:DOX as one of this year’s absolute headliners in conversation with the three directors Karen O’Connor, Miri Navasky and Maeve O’Boyle, who created the film ‘Joan Baez: I Am Noise’, which will also be screened. Featuring extraordinary archival clips, including newly discovered home movies, diaries, artwork and sound recordings, the film recounts the singer’s life on and off stage with remarkable honesty and revelation – from her lifelong psychiatric struggles to her myriad activist causes with Dr. Martin Luther King and others, to a heartbreaking romance and musical partnership with a young Bob Dylan.
