Screened May 24–June 16, 2019

Just in time for its 50th anniversary, Barak Goodman’s documentary takes an intimate look at how the historic three-day rock concert that inspired a generation didn’t happen overnight. Though it capped a decade of great social and political upheaval, Woodstock became a countercultural watershed through the producers, promoters, builders and others who organized it, enduring the harsh conditions at Yasgur’s Farm and accommodating 500,000 people while upholding an ethos of peace and love that ultimately defined it. 

Exclusive NY engagement. A PBS Distribution release.

A film by Barak Goodman

Uses the perspective of nearly 50 years’ hindsight to demonstrate anew how the festival was both a mess and a miracle, and implicitly argues that it was a good deal more miracle than mess.”
