The entire performance of every artist was filmed at Woodstock. This footage has been archived since that history-making weekend and has only recently been re-discovered. Never before has the complete performance been shown, before now.

A time capsule of life in the 60s.. the optimist, the cynicism, the freedom, the oppression, it's all chronicled here in a director's cut that mirrors as closely as possible the original theatrical release of the historic concert from 1969 New York. I love the music, but the behind the scenes of the festival and the people make for some of the most fascinating insight to a world I never experience but can come close with this.

The Summer of 1969 gave us "Woodstock" 3 days of Peace and Music. What a fitting tribute to such a great concert that the whole event was filmed for all of us some 45 years later. You won't want to miss such acts as Sly and the Family Stone. Sly no longer performs and the band rarely plays. Richie Havens was the last minute choice to open the concert. I guess looking out at several hundred thousand people gave some performers stage fright. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young made their first appearance together at Woodstock and said they were scared. There are just great performance throughout the film. The weather and the way the crowd bonded are also a big part of the story. See the whole story in "Woodstock"!
P.S. If you haven't seen the movie in years, the latest copy comes as close to the original as we will ever get!

Seen both the original and most recently the "Director's Cut". I was too young to attend but got some sense of the excitement and importance of the event at the time through the media.

I found the camera work disappointing with too many close up shots and the tendency to focus on certain musicians-usually the vocalists. Pete Townshend and Keith Moon were just as important, if not moreso than Roger Daltrey in The Who! I also would have liked to seen all the bands who played (even if it was a single song) and just more music versus the people/activities shots. Decisions had to be made editing and what's done is done. Possibly a reason to release a long version music only (if the original film exists)?
