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.


HENDRIX 70: LIVE AT WOODSTOCK
2012, Omniverse Vision, 99 min, USA, Dir: Michael Wadleigh, Bob Smeaton

Three muddy days of peace and music, Woodstock was one of the defining events of a generation. The epochal rock festival closed with headliner Jimi Hendrix, who lit up the stage with hits like "Fire," "Purple Haze" and "Foxy Lady" as well as one of the greatest versions of "The Star-Spangled Banner” ever heard. This digitally restored live performance is preceded by a documentary about the road to Woodstock, including interviews with Hendrix band members Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox.
