When acclaimed documentary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker (MONTEREY POP, THE WAR ROOM) filmed Bob Dylan during a three-week concert tour of England in the Spring of 1965, he had no idea he was about to create one of the most intimate glimpses of the rock legend ever put on film. Wanting make more than just a concert film, Pennebaker decided to seek out both the public and private Bob Dylan.
With unobtrusive equipment and unlimited access, Pennebaker achieved an unprecedented, fly-on-the-wall glimpse of one of music's most influential figures - and redefined filmmaking along the way. Hailed as one of the best films about a performing artist ever created, DONT LOOK BACK is more than a view into an extraordinary concert tour - Dylan's last as an acoustic performer. It is a window into the spirit of the 60s, and one of the poet-musicians whose words and songs defined it.
