No Direction Home – Tenth Anniversary Edition
No Direction Home chronicles Dylan’s roots in Hibbing, Minnesota to his emergence in the Greenwich Village folk music scene in New York City through his meteoric rise to the pinnacle of cultural fame and influence in the mid-1960s. The film also captures a series of concerts Dylan gave in Europe and the UK in 1966 that divided audiences while heralding a cultural shift that would influence popular music for decades to come. A decade in the making, the film features unforgettable concert performances alongside exclusive reflections from the artist’s fellow travelers friends, lovers and Dylan himself.
The Ghost of Electricity
The first public exhibition of physical elements from The Bob Dylan Archive – titled The Ghost Of Electricity – will showcase some of the manuscripts and artifacts from this incredibly prolific period in Dylan’s working life, including the original hand-written lyrics to landmark songs such as “Maggie’s Farm,” “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and “Visions of Johanna.” Other elements slated for this exhibition include the heavily corrected typescript of Dylan’s first novel Tarantula (that he can be seen typing throughout Pennebaker’s Don’t Look Back) to the now iconic black leather jacket Dylan wore at Newport in July 1965 where, with his newly formed electric band, he challenged the orthodoxies of the folk movement and ushered in an entirely new era in popular music.
Murray Lerner’s 1967 landmark documentary. The film focuses on some of the Newport Folk Festival’s most memorable performances from the years 1963 to 1966, including Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Odetta, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Pete Seeger and Son House, among others.
D.A. Pennebaker’s groundbreaking documentary of the artist’s 1965 tour of England, The film finds Dylan on his final tour as an acoustic artist, where he is surrounded by teen fans, gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists and shares his journey with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan and Bob Neuwirth. The film features some of Dylan’s most famous songs, including “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.” Attending that evening to introduce the film and answer questions afterwards will be Academy Award winning director D.A. Pennebaker.
Originally released in 2007 to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of Don’t Look Back. For this film, D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus offer audiences another take on a documentary classic by selecting some of the best never-released footage shot during Dylan’s 1965 tour, including previously abridged and omitted performances of “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” and “It Ain’t Me Babe” alongside off-stage rehearsals of an early version of “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry.”
Dylan’s first directorial effort, an avant-garde travelogue via a hallucinatory assemblage of the 1966 tour footage shot by Pennebaker. In this 1972 release, Dylan intercuts concert performances and rehearsals with loosely scripted scenes that make the film neither fiction nor documentary, but a view of from inside the eye of the storm.
