In 1965, when the 23 year-old Bob Dylan toured the United Kingdom, director Pennebaker was allowed behind the scenes to provide one of the most intimate glimpses of the intensely private songwriter. 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the film, which chronicles Dylan's concert appearances, hotel room conversations, and transportation downtime, pulling back the curtain on the artist at the end of his relationship with Joan Baez and on the cusp of his creative shift toward rock music.
A true American icon, Dylan is not simply a singer-songwriter, but an author, poet, film actor (and subject) and has been a major figure in popular music for more than five decades. During the course of his career, he has won awards for songwriting, performing and recording earning him, thus far, eleven Grammys (including a Lifetime Achievement Award), the Kennedy Center Honors and an Academy Award. He has been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2008, he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his “profound impact on American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.”
‘Dont Look Back’ is distinguished by such famed images as the iconic Subterranean Homesick Blues “cue-card” sequence, considered to be the first contemporary music video. A.O. Scott of The New York Times, in reference to the film, has stated that it “invented the rock documentary”. It is also a selection of The National Film Registry Preservation Board.
