WOODSTOCK (The Director's Cut)
1970, Warner Bros., 228 min, USA, Dir: Michael Wadleigh

In THE OMEGA MAN, it’s no wonder that Charlton Heston, sole survivor of the human race, spends his days endlessly watching WOODSTOCK, the ultimate time capsule of the Love Generation. If any film captured the heady idealism, the free-form partying, drug-taking and love-making, and above all the great music of the late 1960s, this is it. The Who, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Sly & The Family Stone, Richie Havens, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana - need we say more? We’ll be screening the much-extended Director’s Cut of the film, featuring many songs and performers not included in the original release version.


MILES ELECTRIC
2004, MLF, 86 min, Dir: Murray Lemer

Incredible documentary capturing Miles Davis at the height of his "Bitches Brew" jazz-rock-free-form fusion best. Built around Davis’ legendary Isle of Wight performance with a band that included Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett, the film provides insight into his groundbreaking odyssey into electric music. Includes interviews with Carlos Santana and Joni Mitchell.
