Dont Look Back
“An unforgettable all-access pass behind the scenes of Bob Dylan's '65 British tour, D.A. Pennebaker's landmark 1967 rock doc all but invented the form while presaging the music video.” —Jim Ridley, Village Voice
In Conversation: Richard Thomas
In anticipation of the opening of Retrospectrum: Bob Dylan at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, Coral Gables Art Cinema presents a one-night only screening of Dont Look Back, featuring a post-screening conversation with Richard Thomas, Harvard professor and author of Why Bob Dylan Matters. Thomas' book will be signed by the author and available for purchase following the conversation.Retrospectrum: Bob Dylan, the most expansive and detailed exhibition of Bob Dylan’s artwork ever seen on U.S. soil, will have its debut at the Frost Art Museum on November 30, 2021.
Bob Dylan is captured on-screen as he never would be again in this groundbreaking film from D. A. Pennebaker. The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in England during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist. In this wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists, Dylan is surrounded by teen fans, gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicks back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price. Featuring 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,” Dont Look Back is a radically conceived portrait of an American icon that has influenced decades of vérité behind-the-scenes documentaries.
Presented In partnership with FIU Frost Art Museum, FIU Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab, and Books & Books.
