We had some fun making the main menu for our new release of D. A. Pennebaker's groundbreaking documentary Dont Look Back. The menu’s video, a two-minute loop composed of rare footage from the film, is structured around an outtake of Bob Dylan performing his song “She Belongs to Me,” with cutaways to some extraordinary material captured by Pennebaker’s camera—which at one point even lands in the hands of Dylan, whose footage of Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky’s swinging dance moves is priceless. We present the video here for your full enjoyment!
