Double Feature!

U.K. documentary. At the time of the 25th anniversary of Woodstock this documentary examined the lives of some of the people who attended the 1969 festival to discover how their lives have changed over the years.

Lots of vintage raw news footage, police surveillance films and fan-filmed scenes of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Interviews with the festival attendees 25 years later as middle-aged adults to show how their lives have scattered in every direction.

As adults some have retained their "peace, love and share" philosophies while others moved into mainstream yuppiedom. Two women who thought the festival was going to be a "nice little outdoor concert" brought a change of clothes and a hair blow dryer. Some of the interviewees describe the festival as terrible and liken it to the trenches of World War I with mud, ticks, and miserable discomfort.

Interviews with Bobby and Nick Ercoline the couple that was famously photographed wrapped in a blanket on the Woodstock LP cover. 1969 festival organizer Michael Lang, is shown preparing for the new Woodstock Festival (which turned into the complete disaster Woodstock '94).

Interviews: Michael Lang, Wavy Gravy, John Sebastian, Richie Havens, Tom Law, Peter Chenlick, Josh White, Andrew Tatarsky, Nancy Cohen, Jack Harrison (State Police), many others.
