Woodstock: Now & Then

Saturday, February 27, 2010, 4:00 pm, $10

Noise Pop Film Festival

Wood Stock Now“Woodstock: Now & Then”explores the frenzied days leading up to the festival, from how the planners scrambled to find a concert site and the traffic jams that shut down the New York State Thruway to the notorious “brown acid” to the thunderous rain and mud and, of course, the music. Weaving together first-hand accounts with rare archival images and an iconic soundtrack, the documentary allows those who were there a chance to relive the experience and gives an entirely new generation an opportunity to feel the magic of that time.

The film also takes an important look at Woodstock’s legacy through the eyes of today’s musicians and activists, examining why Woodstock and all it symbolizes is still relevant in today’s culture. Directed by Barbara Kopple (TRT 120 mins)
