The Bob Dylan Archive will present its first series of Dylan On Film screenings, beginning with the world premiere of the 10th anniversary edition of Martin Scorsese’s No Direction Home.
The screening takes place on Wednesday, September 21 at the University of Tulsa’s Lorton Performance Center; the Archive is housed in the University of Tulsa.
The anniversary edition of No Direction Home includes more than 90 minutes of extended scenes and full-length interviews with Scorsese, Dave van Ronk and Liam Clancy that have recently been unearthed.
That evening will also feature the inaugural public exhibition of physical elements from the archive – titled The Ghost Of Electricity – which include Dylan’s handwritten lyrics, the leather jacket he wore onstage at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 and the typescript of his first novel, Tarantula. The Ghost Of Electricity will move to The Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education, where it will be on display from Friday, September 23 through October 10.
The Dylan On Film festival runs from September 21 to 24 and includes Festival! – Murray Lerner’s 1967 documentary about the Newport Folk Festival – and Dont Look Back plus Q&A with director D.A. Pennebaker. The festival will also screen 2007’s 65 Revisited, containing outtakes from Pennebaker’s original film, and Dylan’s first directorial effort, Eat The Document.
The series closes that evening with Bob Dylan: From The Archive, a program of rare and never-before-seen performances spanning 1963 to 2003 and held exclusively in The Bob Dylan Archive.
