Often referred to as “the weekend that defined a generation,” the Woodstock festival in 1969 became known as the beginning of the Hippie Generation.  A year later, the documentary Woodstockwas released, and we all can now witness what a frenetic, euphoric three-day event it was. To weave in all the happenings into a three-hour film was possible because of the work of three brilliant editors: Martin Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, and Michael Wadleigh. Directed by Michael Wadleigh, the film Woodstock has become a permanent record of one of the greatest festivals of all time. 


Major Participants: Joan Baez / Jimi Hendrix / Joe Cocker / Arlo Guthrie / Richie Havens / The Who

WOODSTOCK, brilliantly directed by Michael Wadleigh, is a virtually perfect record of the music festival.


WOODSTOCK is a record of an extraordinary event, the rock festival that  drew nearly half a million young people to a 600-acre farm near Bethel, New York. For three days the festival featured music, mud, grass, love, milk, skinny-dipping, acid, Cokes, hot dogs, and meth.
