Spotlight On: Todd Haynes

Todd Haynes’ Bob Dylan biopic, I’m Not There, which features six (count ’em) different actors as the legendary musician, was one of the most fascinating films released last year. So naturally The Sun jumped at the oppurtunity to speak with him as he visted campus this past Saturday for a Cornell Cinema retrospective of his work. We sat down with the film director in the Statler to talk about art, his film and, of course, Bob Dylan.
The Sun: So, you went to Brown. What did you study when you were there?
Todd Haynes: I studied art semiotics. When I went to Brown there was no production … I mean there was production but it was in the English department. Semiotics was a program in the English department.
