At its heart, No Direction Home also features the first lengthy interviews the singer-songwriter has given in twenty years, and it reflects the unlimited access Scorsese had to Dylan's private archives, both musical and personal. The brief taste of Dylan that 60 Minutes gave viewers two years ago was enticing, but hardly exhaustive. Scorsese's film promises to fill in a lot of blanks.
Scheduled to air in two parts early next week on KRMA-TV/Channel 6, No Direction Home will also screen in a one-time sneak preview on Friday, September 23, at the Starz FilmCenter, 900 Auraria Parkway. That 7:30 p.m. showing is free, but required tickets for seating in the tiny 166-seat theater are sure to go quickly; call 303-820-FILM.
The KRMA broadcasts of the three-hour-and-forty-minute film are scheduled for 9 p.m. Monday, September 26 (Part One), and 9 p.m. Tuesday, September 27 (Part Two). Back-to-back reruns of both are scheduled to air on October 1 beginning at 9 p.m.
