The documentary, selected from the Festival dei Popoli archive, was produced by John Court and Albert Grossman (the impresario already manager of singer-songwriter Bob Dylan), distributed by Docurama. Filmed in black and white, with a duration of just over an hour and a half, the documentary is essentially based on the concert tour that Bob Dylan held in the United Kingdom in 1965.
