For Your Consideration...

We are honored to announce that Little Gandhi, featuring Dylan's song Man of Peace, is the official entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2018 Oscars for the country of Syria! The film was directed by Syrian/American Sam Kadi, who invited Dylan to compose the film's official song. The list of films in this category is very long, so it is going to be a lot of work to make it on to the short list. In order to increase the buzz for the film, Dylan will release the single Man of Peace with a video this Fall.
