14:30 Doors 15:00 Joan Baez: I Am a Noise (2023)

IN-EDIT is back! From 11 to 21 April the sixth edition of the music documentary festival takes place at the Melkweg. Again many great music films will be screened this year, like this documentary about the singer-songwriter Joan Baez, with live Sophie Janna.

Her breakthrough at the age of 18, her relationship with Bob Dylan, her involvement in the civil rights movement and her protest against the Vietnam War. This documentary follows iconic singer Joan Baez (1941) – honoured with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among others – on her farewell tour of America and Europe. She played at Woodstock, performed with Bono and Peter Gabriel and remains one of the most prominent members of the protest generation. The film brings the past to life with unique archive material, conjuring up a picture of a not-always-so-happy family. Baez also talks candidly about these unknown dark sides of her life.

Melkweg often hosts different types of programmes at the same time, such as concerts, club nights and films. Please note that there may occasionally be some noise pollution from other programmes during the screening.
