Description

Bob Dylan on Screen: A cinematic tribute to the iconic troubadour, in conjunction with our Curious Minds course on Bob Dylan running May 19–June 23.

From Bob Dylan's sardonic and instantly quotable anti-social one-liners, to flashing cue cards for Subterranean Homesick Blues in an alley, Dont Look Back is an endlessly iconic tribute to the enigmatic musician. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see D.A. Pennebaker’s classic fly-on-the-wall documentary following Dylan’s 1965 tour of England. Dylan is exquisitely impenetrable here, always wary of how his persona, his art and his fame are framed. Pennebaker’s film achieves a level of intimacy with its elusive subject, capturing a pivotal time for Dylan and the wider zeitgeist as he transformed from just another folk singer into the defining figure of the 1960s.
