The story of Bob Dylan, directed by Martin Scorsese, from a rock 'n' roll-loving kid in the Midwest to his arrival as a major force in the world of folk music. Including unseen footage and rare recordings, in-depth interviews and revealing photographs, this film tells the story of one man's journey, placing it within the greater canvas of human events. This opening part traces his journey from a rock 'n' roll loving kid in the Midwest to his arrival as a major force in the world of folk music. In his own words, Dylan tells viewers how he became smitten with folk music as the story shifts scenes from the iron range in Minnesota to Greenwich Village in New York City. An amazing cast of characters includes Dave Van Ronk, the king of Greenwich village folk clubs, Joan Baez, queen of the folk music world and Allen Ginsburg, America's beat poet laureate. And, most importantly, the wide range of music that influenced the young Bob Dylan is explored.
