It was the summer of 1969 and 500,000 people descended on a small patch of field in a little know town in upstate New York. What unfolded was the greatest outdoor rock concert the world has ever seen.
Few documentaries have ever captured a time and place more completely, poignantly and definitively than Mike Wadleigh’s Woodstock. Capturing the heart of America in transition, when the Vietnam War was at its peak and anti-war protest was expressed through a non-stop parade of peace, love and music, this award-winning film immortalises performances by some of the greats of the period; Jimi Hendrix, Richie Havens, Jefferson Airplane, Crosby Still and Nash, Santana, Joan Baez and many more.
Monumental in its scope and tracing the inception all the way through to the un-expected air delivery of food and medical supplies from the National Guard, this landmark concert film recreates, defines and gives voice to the spirit of a generation.
