The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival es una película documental de 2007, dirigida por Murray Lerner, incluyendo las apariciones de Bob Dylan en el Newport Folk Festival, que tuvieron lugar en tres años sucesivos: 1963, 1964 y 1965. En la actuación de 1965 fur laprimera aparición dee Bob con respaldo eléctrico bluesero/rockero. Este respaldo tuvo mucha jerarquía: el guitarrista Mike Bloomfield, el bajista Jerome Arnold y el baterista Sam Lay, los tres de la Paul Butterfield Blues Band, además del organista Al Kooper y el pianista Barry Goldberg.

The film adds to the footage previously seen in Lerner's Festival! (1967), with full-length song performances. It includes Dylan's controversial electric set from 1965.

This film features previously unseen footage, chronicling the changes in Dylan's style when he appeared at Newport in three successive years. This film was broadcast by BBC Four on October 14, 2007. Director Murray Lerner commented: "Over the course of three Newport gigs, Dylan becomes more conscious of his power. His charisma is startling. With electricity and radio, he did what Yeats, Lorca, T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound never achieved. He reached a mass audience with poetry."
