Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music (1970) 40th Anniversary Edition
If you really want to experience the 60's, here is the pinnacle of that era. Showing three days of peace, love, and especially music, it is one of the best documentary films ever made. We watch as millions of people gather to see some of their favorite musical artists, while trying to survive overcrowding, a rain storm and an extremely muddy field. We also take a look at the townspeople and there reaction to all of this, as they talk of the war in Vietnam, the festival going on around them and their opinions on the whole counterculture.
The highlights are, of course, the music!
