In 1969, more than 400,000 people descended on a small patch of field in upstate New York near Woodstock. In this documentary, the iconic event is chronicled in unflinching detail, from the event’s inception all the way through to the unexpected air-delivery of food and medical supplies by the Army National Guard. The film contains performances, interviews with the artists and candid footage of the fans in a defining portrait of 1960s America. Please note this film has nudity, profanity and drug use and may not be suitable for children. Our friends with muttradio.com will be on hand before the film playing Woodstock music.
