Saturday, Jan. 13 at 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK— The film, “Joan Baez I Am a Noise” (2023),directed by Miri Navasky, Karen O’Connor, and Maeve O’Boyle, documents legendary folk singer/activist Joan Baez who, facing the end of a 60-year musical career, 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 until now. Baez bids farewell to performing, and takes stock of her life in this unusually intimate and honest film.

Drawing from Baez’s extraordinary archive, filmmakers Karen O’Connor, Miri Navasky, and Maeve O’Boyle construct a deeply honest portrait of the living legend who was the voice of her generation, reflecting on her life on and off the stage, personal emotional struggles, and family secrets—revealing for the first time the full truth of her life.

The showings take place in the Billings Farm & Museum Visitor Center Theater. Tickets are $15 person/$12 Billings Farm member.
