Filmphonics: Woodstock Double-Bill


Taking Woodstock // Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music

At Filmphonics we celebrate all kinds of music and film combinations from live scores to electronic experiments and sing-alongs. This month we’re getting into the festival spirit to celebrate one of the biggest and most legendary festivals ever.

Taking Woodstock is Ang Lee’s docudrama about a young man’s coming of age and his pivotal role in the making of the festival, starring polymath Demetri Martin as Elliot Tiber.

Woodstock 3 Days of Love and Peace immerses you in the festival as it happened with dynamic, often trippy editing by Martin Scorsese (edited from 120 hours or 50 miles of film) and interviews with the invading hippies and the steadfast locals. As well as being one of the greatest music documentaries of all time (featuring performances from Richie Havens, Joan Baez, The Who, Joe Cocker, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Janis Joplin & Jimi Hendrix) this is also one of the greatest Vietnam protest films made in the United States; Hendrix’s climatic rendition of The Star Spangled Banner to a near evacuated field has to be seen and heard.
