Woodstock

Must-See Cinema! 50 years of Peace & Music

Woodstock: The Director’s Cut adds 40 minutes, a freshly remixed digital soundtrack, and previously unseen footage of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane to Michael Wadleigh’s original Academy Award-winning documentary about the famous music festival.

Poster for the anniversary re-issue of the concert film WoodstockThe new footage fits seamlessly into the total fabric, which features memorable performances by the likes of Jefferson Airplane, Joan Baez, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Country Joe & The Fish, John Sebastian, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, Joe Cocker, Sly & The Family Stone, Ten Years After, Santana, and The Who.

This is a documentary in the purest sense of that word, in that it ‘documents’ a social and cultural benchmark – the coming together of more than 400,000 young people in the meadows of a dairy farm in upstate New York for what was billed as ‘three days of peace and music’ – but turned out to be much more, coming to symbolize the optimism of an entire generation.
