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