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.

Hotly debated and lavishly praised upon its release in 2007, Todd Haynes's Academy Award–nominated portrait of the many faces of Bob Dylan depicts an artist whose continual reinvention of himself also transformed the world around him. I'm Not There shuffles between six characters in separate storylines that represent the different facets of Dylan's public persona (including poet, outlaw and rock n' roll martyr), each brought to life by a brilliant actor like Cate Blanchett, Heath Ledger, Ben Whishaw and Christian Bale. I'm Not There offers a mind-expanding tribute to the private history and public legend of an all-American icon.
