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. His steady stream of patter and in-jokes seems modern even today - like a time traveler who would shortly, more than anyone else, make over the era in his image. 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.

Screening introduced by Austin Chronicle music editor Raoul Hernandez.

Austin Film Society is proud to partner with our friends at the Paramount and Stateside Theatres to offer a number of special screenings while the AFS Cinema is being renovated. For more information about this exciting project, and how you can be a part of it, see
