American Masters: Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound

Oct 9, 2009

New York

Artist and activist Joan Baez is indeed the conscience of a generation. In this first comprehensive documentary to chronicle her private life and public career, How Sweet the Sound provides unprecedented access to the musician’s thoughts and concerns. We see her in Saravejo, Bosnia, revisiting the site of her courageous trip during the siege. We hear her talk about her controversial visit to North Vietnam during the heaviest bombing of the war, and of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s support of her after she was jailed for organizing a protest. Baez is joined on screen by Bob Dylan, David Crosby, and Reverend Jesse Jackson, who help to illuminate her remarkable life. (90 minutes)

Please note: Ticket prices are for admission to the Paley Center and attendance at the Q&A panel discussion related to the events.
