On the weekend of August 15th 1969, more than half a million people united at a farm near Woodstock for the now legendary festival.
Fifty years on, this feature length documentary is told uniquely through the voices and the home-movies of the people who were there.
Featuring a treasure trove of astonishing, never seen before interviews and super 8 footage, The Festival That Rocked The World tells the colourful, magical and very personal story of those halcyon days that defined a generation.
“The best of a rash of documentaries, Todd Austin’s film looks past the logistics of 1969’s Woodstock music and art fair to communicate the free spirit of the festival…” The Guardian
“Whereas previous films focused on the most beautiful and bizarre specimens of life on site, this offers an earthier glimpse into an experience that feels more “real”. Radio Times
