8 years ago, New Video’s Docurama Films released the first Blu-ray release of Dont Look Back, newly mastered in high definition and featuring this brand new and exclusive interview with D.A. Pennebaker, the film’s director, and renowned rock and culture critic Greil Marcus.
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 lens one of the 1960s most iconic feature films. Wanting to make more than just a concert film, Pennebaker decided to seek out both the public and private Bob Dylan. With unobtrusive equipment and rare access to the elusive performer, he achieved a fly-on-the-wall view of one of the most influential musicians of any era — and redefined filmmaking along the way.
