Dont look back by D. A Pennebaker( Visual )

16 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A record of Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England with glimpses of Dylan in concert, confronting interviewers, matching his style against that of Donovan or caught in moments before and after performances. The camera sometimes leaves Dylan for Joan Baez or his manager wheeling and dealing with television producers via phone. The focus remains on Dylan and the interaction between Dylan and the camera's presence. Pennebaker experiments with new lightweight camera and sound recording equipment
Don't Look Back by Bob Dylan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portrait of Dylan as a young man during the period when his music is shifting from acoustic to electric, filmed during his 1965 concert tour of England. '65 revisited' contains outtakes from Don't look back, with new commentary
The murder of Fred Hampton( Visual )

5 editions published between 1971 and 2007 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mike Gray started out to make a film about the Black Panther Party, but on Dec. 4, 1969, the Chicago police raided a Panther apartment and his film became a documentary about the murder of Fred Hampton, chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. The film footage of the raid directly contradicted the State Attorney's version of the raid and so filmmakers and Panthers came together to prove that Hampton had been the designated target of the violent, punitive raid. The film's inquiry pursues official spokesmen and traps them in their attempts at covering up an orchestrated assassination
Festival : folk music at Newport, 1963-1966( Visual )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Woodstock and Monterey Pop, there was Festival. From 1963 through 1966, Murray Lerner visited the annual Newport Folk Festival to document a thriving, idealistic musical movement as it reached its peak as a popular phenomenon. Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, the Staple Singers, Pete Seeger, Son House, and Peter, Paul and Mary were just a few of the legends who shared the stage at Newport, treating audiences to a range of folk music that encompassed the genre's roots in blues, country, and gospel as well as its newer flirtations with rock and roll. Shooting in gorgeous black and white, Lerner juxtaposes performances with snapshot interviews with artists and their fans, weaving footage from four years of the festival into an intimate record of a pivotal time in music--and in American culture at large"--Container
American revolution 2( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1960s was defined by a common effort to fight against injustice. Mike Gray, a Chicago filmmaker, used his camera to document the politics of the streets from the riots in the social upheaval, to the rising of two prolific groups fighting prejudice
Janis by Janis Joplin( Visual )

16 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short, electrifying career of singer Janis Joplin (1943-1970) is chronicled in this 96-minute documentary. Using family photos, interviews and concert clips, a fairly thorough portrait is painted of the dynamic, self-destructive R&B singer. With Joplin, what you saw was what you got: she is as volcanic and unpredictable off-stage as on. Janis Joplin's family had a lot of input in this production; thus, Joplin's music is given precedence over her private demons and her fabled substance abuse

THE SEASONS CHANGE( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On December 15, 1968, The seasons change was screened in response to, What trees do they plant?, a City of Chicago film made to combat he image of police brutality during the August, 1968 Democratic Convention. Bill Jersey and a sizeable group of other activist filmmakers pooled their footage which had been shot at the convention. They called themselves Documentary Interlock. Their goal was to produce a film that would counter the "official Chicago" version of the convention. As Jersey recounts it, they began with about 60 filmmakers that were committed to the project. As the potential for any funding dwindled, so did the number of committed filmmakers. One of the very few left was Howard Alk. Alk focused on the interviews with people who were assaulted by police during the convention. Although you'll see interviews with Allen Ginsberg and Rennie Davis, Alk singled out more mainstream individuals who were there to peacefully march against the war, or who were there simply to observe the convention. Howard intercut their on-camera recollections with footage of their brutal arrests
SCHAU NICHT ZURÜCK ; Regie: P.A. Pennebaker. Mit Bob Dylan, Donovan, Albert Grossman, Joan Baez, Jones Alk, Howard Alk, Bob Neuwirth, Alan Price, Tito Burns, Derroll Adams. Musik: Bob Dylan( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahre 1965 hatte der amerikanische Filmemacher D.A. Pennebaker die Möglichkeit, den 23-jährigen Bob Dylan auf einer mehrwöchigen Tournee durch Großbritannien zu begleiten. Dylan wollte ihn dabei haben, um die Möglichkeiten des Films für Musik auszuloten. So entstand dieses legendäre Filmporträt. In den 60-er Jahren war Bob Dylan neben den Beatles der populärste Musiker. Pennebaker begleitet Dylan bei Auftritten, bei Pressekonferenzen, erlebt ihn im Hotel und bei einer Begegnung mit dem Kollegen Donovan. Dylan singt "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "All I Really want to Do", "Maggie"s Farm", "The Times They are a Changin"" und andere Lieder aus dieser Zeit. Der Ausdruck "Don"t look back" ist eine Zeile aus dem Lied "She belongs to me", von dem Dylan nur die Zeile "You will start out standing ..." singt. Pennebaker gelingt es geschickt, ein einzigartiges Stück Zeit- und Musikgeschichte zu schaffen. Man erlebt nicht nur die schillernde Persönlichkeit eines genialen Künstlers, sondern auch ein Stück zeitgenössisches Lebensgefühl der jungen Generation, das Dylan einzufangen wusste. Mit der von Pennebaker Anfang der 60-er Jahre entwickelten tragbaren Kamera mit Synchronton und Zoom, die er als "living camera" einsetzt, ist es möglich geworden, auch Alltäglichkeiten einzufangen. Innerhalb von dreieinhalb Wochen produzierte Pennebaker rund 20 Stunden Material, die zu der vorliegenden Fassung zusammengeschnitten wurden.
