Tribeca reviews: "Woodstock: Three Days That Defined A Generation"

"Woodstock: Three Days That Defined A Generation" is less about the acutal concert performances from the classic rock era musicians, and more about what is was like to put the festival together, be a musician playing at the festival, and attend the festival as a peace and love searching concert-goer.  The film has a few more screenings at The Tribeca Film Festival 2019, will then play at the Quad Cinema in NYC starting on May 24, 2019, at Landmark's Nuart Cinema on June 7, 2019, and will also air on PBS/WGBH in August 2019 (for the 50th Anniversary). 

Transport yourself back to the late 60's when four businessmen had the idea of putting together three days of politically conscious music on a farm in Bethel, NY.  The planning included where to hold the gathering, figuring out which amenities, and how many of each to obtain, putting up fences/gates, stage design, performers, and ticket sales.  The concert organizers were uncertain of how many people would actually show up, as many of the music lovers didn't plan ahead, and just made the journey from all around the country just to listen to music and meet other like minded people searching for answers to questions like, "Why was the VietNam war still going on?", the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and MLK (1968), and civil and social injustices.  

The film really makes you feel as if you were in the audience and actually attending the festival, detailing the times the musicians went up on stage, the musicians that improvised for the sake of scheduling, which performers were scheduled for which dates and times, when people walked around the grounds and experienced the arts and crafts and other visitors and performers, the drugs that were taken, the times the rains came, the slip and slides in the mud, how they communicated with one another and the outside world, went skinny dipping, gave birth, first aid tents, make shift tents/hippy buses, slept, searched for food, and finally went home, unscathed.

Must experience!
