“Woodstock” Doc in “American Experience” Series Coming on August 6 from PBS

One of the most influential concerts America has ever witnessed is the focus of filmmaker Barak Goodman’s Woodstock: Three Days That Defined a Generation (DVD: $24.99), which is slated for release on August 6 from PBS Distribution. Revisiting the 1969 Woodstock concert for its 50th anniversary, this addition to the American Experience series examines the tumultuous decade that led to those three historic days—years that saw the nation deeply divided by the war in Vietnam, as well as racial, generational, and sexual politics. This story is told through the voices of those who were present for an event that would become the defining moment of the counterculture revolution, including concert-goers, security guards, performers, and local residents. Woodstock offers a penetrating look this once-in-a-century cultural phenomenon that served as a coda to the Sixties and a harbinger of the decades to come.
