Trouble No More showcases Bob Dylan’s creative and spiritual mindset during his “born again” gospel era, which generated three of his most debated and analyzed records—“Slow Train Coming” (1979), “Saved” (1980), and “Shot of Love” (1981). Featuring electrifying performances in Toronto and Buffalo thought to have been lost for years, the newly restored footage captures a band that includes keyboardists Spooner Oldham and Terry Young, Little Feat guitarist Fred Tackett, bassist Tim Drummond, drummer Jim Keltner, and vocalists Clydie King, Gwen Evans, Mona Lisa Young, Regina McCrary, and Mary Elizabeth Bridges. Interspersed with sermons written by Luc Sante and performed by Michael Shannon, the film offers another glimpse into the Dylan mystique.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
