Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation
In August 1969?against a backdrop of a nation in conflict over sexual politics, civil rights, and the Vietnam War?half a million people converged on a small dairy farm in upstate New York to hear the concert of a lifetime. What they experienced was a moment that would spark a cultural revolution, changing many of them and the country forever. With never-before-seen footage, Woodstock tells the story of the political and social upheaval leading up to those three historic days, as well as the extraordinary events of the concert itself, when near disaster put the ideals of the counterculture to the test. What took place in that teaming mass of humanity ? the rain-soaked, starving, tripping, half-a-million strong throng of young people ? was nothing less than a miracle of unity, a manifestation of the ?peace and love? the festival had touted, and a validation of the counterculture?s promise to the world. Who were these kids? What experiences and stories did they carry with them to Bethel, New York that weekend, and how were they changed by their time in the muck and mire of Max Yasgur?s farm?
