Sound Unseen is proud to present a 50th anniversary screening of D.A. Pennebraker's landmark 1967 documentary Don't Look Back with a special intro and performance by author / musician Dylan Hicks.
Date: Wed. May 10, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM
Venue: Trylon microcinema
Documentarian D.A. Pennebaker’s cinematic portrait of 23-year-old Bob Dylan is more than just the record of a talented musician, it also depicts the flowering of a certain kind of consciousness. Again and again in his interactions with fans, fellow musicians, and local dignitaries, Dylan subverts the idea of what a famous singer should be. Not primarily a music doc, though it is filled with unforgettable performances, this is a completely one-of-a-kind movie about a one-of-a-kind person, and Pennebaker’s direct cinema style captures the man, the music, and the attitude for all time.
Director: D.A. Pennebaker, USA, 1967, 96 min.
