This Saturday, 13th January 2018, The Quarter brings their very first edition of Movie Night and presents the 1970 documentary, the watershed counterculture Woodstock festival which took place in August 1969 near Bethel, New York. In 1969, 500,000 people descended on a small patch of field in a little-known town in upstate New York called Woodstock. ‘Woodstock’ the Rockumentary chronicles the legendary 1969 music festival.
The film was a great commercial and critical success. It received the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Film Editing and for Best Sound. The 1970 theatrical release of the film ran 185 minutes. A director’s cut spanning 225 minutes was released in 1994. Both cuts take liberties with the timeline of the festival. However, the opening and closing acts are the same in the film as in real life; Richie Havens opens the show and the legendary Jimi Hendrix closes it.
In this documentary, the iconic event is chronicled in unflinching detail, from the event's inception all the way through to the unexpected air-delivery of food and medical supplies by the National Guard. The film contains performances, interviews with the artists and candid footage of the fans in a defining portrait of 1960s America.
Some of the acts that the movie will showcase are Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Santana and many more..
