Bob Dylan's Life and Career Revealed in Upcoming Documentary
Published Mar 01, 2011In recent years, Bob Dylan has been the source of a seemingly endless supply of archival material and biographical features. Recent projects have included (deep breath) his nine-volume Bootleg Series, the Martin Scorsese-directed No Direction Home, the gender-bending I'm Not There, a live album recorded in 1963 and a six-book deal that will include two separate autobiographies. Now, we've received word of a new DVD that will explore Dylan's life and career entitled Revealed.
The DVD will come out via Highway 61 Entertainment and MVD Visual on May 1, which is the same month Dylan turns 70. The career-spanning feature runs from the early '60s right up to the present day and contains interviews with collaborators, music historians and even Dylan's pastor from his born-again phase during the late '70s.
A press release offers this description: "Through exclusive insider interviews and never-before-seen photos and footage spanning Dylan's 50-year career, Bob Dylan Revealed offers an intimate biography of who Bob Dylan was, and who he is today."
The 110-minute film was directed by Joel Gilbert, who has previously released several movies about Dylan and performs as Bob in a tribute band called Highway 61 Revisited. See a trailer for Revealed below.
