"A film whose chief sin may just be that it doesn’t run about a half-hour longer." —Chris Willman, Variety

"A deeply fascinating portrait of the activist and folk music icon."—Mark Johnson, Awards Daily

"A more moving cinematic testament to Joan Baez could not exist."—Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail

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 moves back and forth through time as it follows Joan on her farewell 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.
