Since her debut at the age of 18, musi­ci­an, civil rights cam­pai­gner and acti­vist Joan Baez has been on stage for over 60 years. For the now 82-year-old, the per­so­nal has always been poli­ti­cal, and her fri­end­ship with Martin Luther King and her paci­fism have shaped her com­mit­ment. In this bio­gra­phy that opens with her fare­well tour, Baez takes stock in an unspa­ring fashion and con­fronts some­ti­mes pain­ful memo­ries. She not only shares her suc­ces­ses but also speaks open­ly about long-stan­ding psy­cho­lo­gi­cal pro­blems and the­ra­pies, about fami­ly, drugs, age­ing and ques­ti­ons of guilt and for­gi­ve­ness. She makes it clear that, during her rela­ti­onship with the very young Bob Dylan, she used her cele­bri­ty to launch his care­er. Her dis­ap­point­ment at her later estran­ge­ment from him beco­mes pal­pa­ble.
Thanks to a long-term fri­end­ship with one of the film’s direc­tors, Karen O’Connor, Baez gran­ted the direc­ting trio access to the “inner demons” that have plagued her sin­ce youth. Their film inter­wea­ves dia­ry ent­ries and a wealth of part­ly pre­vious­ly unseen archi­ve mate­ri­al with exten­si­ve con­ver­sa­ti­ons with Baez, as well as back­stage moments from the tour. An inti­ma­te por­trait that will not only be of inte­rest to her fans.
