"I'm Not There" at the Venice Film Fest: Video Interview With Todd Haynes and Heath Ledger

September 21, 2007 12:27 PM ET

An astonishing number of days have passed since we last posted anything about Todd Haynes' Bob Dylan-inspired film I'm Not There, but fear not, today we came across this video about the movie. I'm Not There was awarded the Special Jury Prize (alongside La Graine et le Mulet, a French film by Abdellatif Kechiche) at this year's Venice Film Festival earlier this month, and this report, which features interviews with director Haynes and one of the film's six Dylans (Heath Ledger), provides welcome insight into Haynes' vision. Check it out, then enjoy a tour through our past coverage of the film including our I'm Not There photo gallery, on-set report, and sneak-peak preview of the film.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
