HamptonsFilm To Close 15th Annual SummerDocs Series With Joan Baez & Laurie Anderson 

HamptonsFilm will host its third and final screening in the 15th annual SummerDocs Series. The 2023 edition of the documentary showcase will conclude with a presentation of Karen O’Connor, Miri Navasky, and Maeve O’Boyle’s “Joan Baez I Am Noise” on Sunday, August 13, at 7 PM at the Regal UA East Hampton Cinema. O’Connor and the film’s subject Joan Baez will be in attendance.

“Joan Baez I Am Noise” follows legendary singer and activist as she faces the end of a 60-year musical career and takes an honest look back and a deep look inward as she tries to make sense of her large history-making life. In doing so she reveals, for the first time, personal struggles she’s kept private, until now.

“Joan Baez is a true musical force and an icon, and this documentary expertly captures the full breadth of her more than half-a-century career,” said HamptonsFilm Artistic Director David Nugent. “It is an honor to welcome her to the Hamptons to share the intimate details of her incredible story.”

Following the film, Joan Baez and Karen O’Connor will join the avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson for an intimate conversation. Anderson is a writer, director, composer, visual artist, musician and vocalist who has created groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater, experimental music, and technology.

“To have two pioneering creatives on stage together feels like a fever dream,” said Anne Chaisson HamptonsFilm Executive Director. “SummerDocs was created 15 years ago to celebrate what is now a most beloved art form — documentaries. We are ecstatic to end our 15th season showcasing a conversation between these two activists and engineers of social change.”
