LONG before the festival that made "Woodstock" a household name, the town of Woodstock, NY, was home to an amazing series of artists and individualists who pushed social and sexual boundaries starting in 1902 with the onset of Byrdcliffe, Woodstock's first arts colony.
Join director David McDonald as he takes viewers on a wild and psychedelic ride through 100 years of history, from the outrageous Maverick Festivals of the 1920s to the days when Dylan, Joplin and Hendrix strolled the town's streets as residents.
As the 40th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival comes and goes, Woodstock Revisited is the only really new addition to the Woodstock legacy for over forty years.
In fact, you'll emerge from the experience with the understanding that Woodstock didn't end after those three days in the mud...
In fact, it's just begun.
Below: Director David McDonald introduces his film, Woodstock Revisited.
And here's a section from the film on The Woodstock Soundouts, a series of outdoor concerts that went on in Woodstock in the years leading up to the Festival. Many of the same performers later featured at the Woodstock Festival first appeared in the Woodstock Soundouts.
