In Conversation: Richard Thomas

In anticipation of the opening of Bob Dylan: Retrospectum at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, Coral Gables Art Cinema presents a one-night only screening of Dont Look Back, featuring a post-screening conversation with Richard Thomas, Harvard professor and author of Why Dylan MattersRetrospectum, the most expansive and detailed exhibition of Bob Dylan’s artwork ever seen on U.S. soil, will have its debut at the Frost Art Museum on November 30, 2021.

Bob Dylan is captured on-screen as he never would be again in this groundbreaking film from D. A. Pennebaker. The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in England during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist. In this wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists, Dylan is surrounded by teen fans, gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicks back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price. Featuring some of Dylan’s most famous songs, including “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue,” Dont Look Back is a radically conceived portrait of an American icon that has influenced decades of ve´rite´ behind-the-scenes documentaries.

Presented In partnership with FIU Frost Art Museum, FIU Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab, and Books & Books.
