New England Premiere
Oscar winning directors, and 2008 PIFF Faith Hubley honorees, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman return to PIFF with LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE. With her singular voice, Linda Ronstadt created a genre-defying career that spanned decades—from the 1960s to her retirement in 2011 due to Parkinson’s disease. There was seemingly nothing she couldn’t do—and do fantastically well: folk, pop, country, jazz, world music, or even opera. In their welcome and poignant documentary, Epstein and Friedman skillfully guide us through Ronstadt’s life and career, narrated by Ronstadt herself. With moving testimonials by Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Bonnie Raitt.
