“Michael Wadleigh’s epic, immersive, and still stirring 1970 documentary Woodstock remains the definitive account of the ‘Three Days of Peace, Love and Music’ … a fantastic concert film, it’s also a first-rate piece of contemporary reportage.” – NY Times
The Oscar-winning documentary chronicles 1969, a year unlike any other. Man first set foot on the moon. The New York Mets won the World Series against all odds. And for three days in the rural town of Bethel, New York, half a million people experienced the single most defining moment of their generation — a concert unprecedented in scope and influence, a coming together of people from all walks of life with a single common goal: peace and music. They called it Woodstock.
One year later, a landmark documentary captured the essence of the music, the electricity of the performances, and the experience of those who lived it.
