Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound on the Northbridge Piazza Superscreen

In the first comprehensive film to chronicle the private life and public career of Joan Baez, this documentary examines her history as a recording artist and performer as well as her remarkable journey as the conscience of a generation.

In addition to featuring rare, archival performance footage, the film includes candid interviews with David Crosby, Bob Dylan, ex-husband David Harris, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Roger McGuinn, and more.

The film is rich with historic material, including footage of Baez's controversial visit to North Vietnam and footage of Martin Luther King Jr outside a California prison, where he visited Joan to offer his support after she was jailed for protesting the draft during the Vietnam War.

Following Baez on her 2008-2009 world tour, the filmmakers captured Baez in performance as well as in intimate conversations with individuals whose lives parallel hers.
