Jeff Bridges has narrated a new short film about Bob Dylan and the Basement Tapes sessions at Big Pink.

Available exclusively on Bob Dylan’s Official Facebook Page and BobDylan.com, From The Village To The Basement compresses more than 12,000+ photographs into an extended time-lapse tracking shot, opening on the sidewalk in front of the Washington Square Hotel in Greenwich Village, moving northward through upstate New York, and finally pulling into the driveway of Big Pink, where The Basement Tapes were recorded in 1967.

Following the route traveled by Dylan and The Band from Manhattan to the West Saugerties on their way to Big Pink, From The Village To The Basement is a virtual road trip with narrator Jeff Bridges serving as tour guide, recounting the history and mystery of The Basement Tapes, their influence on American music and the bootleg culture these recordings launched.
