Description

Released in time for the 50th anniversary of the event, Barak Goodman and Jamila Ephron's new documentary looks back at the legendary music festival with a fresh perspective. Rather than focusing on the footage we’ve seen again and again, the film leans on striking clips of regular people. Our attention is turned to concert-goers lined up to buy supplies at the only grocer, and the kids stuck in stand-still traffic, eventually abandoning their VWs, and the thousands of strangers turned instant friends, who shared a hopeful view of a peaceful future. In August of 1969 —against the backdrop of a nation in turmoil—half a million people came together to experience the concert of a lifetime, and this film gives us a never-before-seen look into this still powerful moment. In Person: Directors Barak Goodman, Jamila Ephron.
