The Ballad of A.J. Weberman

The Ballad Of A.J. Weberman is a feature length documentary chronicling the life, times and crimes of notorious Bob Dylan obsessive and Garbology inventor, A.J. Weberman. Its an irreverent and witty exploration into one man's obsessions, his life lived on the New York fringes and a uniquely twisted take on the American dream.

The film enjoys an unforgettable cast of characters including Lower East Side street punk-poet David Peel, former child dancer Jay Byrd and Aaron Kay aka 'The Pieman.' A rare and astonishing telephone conversation between Weberman and Dylan appears in the film as an animation. And to top it all, the film is accompanied by a vivid Americana soundtrack performed by members of the cast.

Length: 80 minutes

Features an excerpt from John Lennon's appearance on Underground, filmed at the Record Plant East on July 26, 1972:
