Search Museum of the Moving Image




Dir. Michael Wadleigh. 1970, 185 mins. 35mm print with a magnetic soundtrack. With Joan Baez, Sly and the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Richie Havens, The Who, Joe Cocker, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Santana, Arlo Guthrie. The blissful, rain-soaked, star-studded music event that was one of the defining events of the 1960s, received an epic film worthy of the festival. Thelma Schoonmaker, with Martin Scorsese as her assistant, helped lead the editing team, shaping 120 miles of film footage into a big-screen cinematic spectacle that let viewers feel they were among the 400,000 people who actually attended.
