Calling The Woodstock Generation
This isn’t my project but I’m enlisting aid for our department, which has embarked on a first- ever collabo with The History Channel. Two time Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple and Michael Lang are producing a film about the historic 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Kopple should know – her film My Generation profiled boomer and Gen X Woodstock concertgoers.
A key component to this VH1 Rock Doc will be hearing from fans and we’ve put up a site to collect first person stories. If you were at the original Woodstock in ’69 – or know someone who was (perhaps your parents) – and have any home grown personal footage from the festival, or photos, or stories, the filmmakers would love to see and hear it all. Check out the site or write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Peace out! (you knew that end line was coming.)
