Woodstock : 3 days of peace & music by Michael Wadleigh( Visual )

145 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For three days in the summer of 1969, a rock concert was held on an upstate New York farm, and 400,000 people attended -- far more than were anticipated, far more than paid, far more than could be fed or sheltered or cared for after injuries or drug overdoses. It rained, there was mud, all traffic in and out was gridlocked, and the music continued, night and day. "Woodstock Nation" existed for three days and was absorbed into American myth. As depicted in this film, in roughly chronological order, the elusive memory of that nation is cemented into a pungent social documentary. Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely--in the full flower of its moment, youth, and hope--than this one. It is also one of the finest musical documentaries ever made--if not the best--utilizing adventurous camera work, daring editing, frame mirroring, freeze frames, blackouts, and multi-angle perspectives widening the 1.33:1 image to 2.20:1 to capture flamboyant, riveting, career-defining performances, within an amazing chronicle of how the musicians interact onstage as audience members react to the musicians' performances

David Holzman's diary( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this 1967 faux-documentary, a man tries to put all of his life experiences on celluloid. His insistence upon poking his camera where it isn't wanted results only in irritation, alienation, and a few bloody noses. As Holzman's life (and his film) becomes harder to follow, the audience is liable to be as confused as David, especially if they make the mistake of taking this whole thing seriously. Filmed like cinema verite, it's a well-disguised fiction about the deceptions of cinematic illusionism and the lies people tell themselves in order to live

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1969 war ein Jahr wie kein anderes. Der Mensch setzte das erste Mal seinen Fuss auf den Mond. Die New York Mets gewannen entgegen aller Wahrscheinlichkeit die World Series. Und drei Tage lang erlebte eine halbe Million Menschen in der Kleinstadt Bethel, New York den Augenblick, der diese Generation am meisten definierte - ein Konzert, das in Ausmass und Einfluss unerreicht ist, eine Zusammenkunft aus Menschen aller Schichten mit einem gemeinsamen Ziel: Frieden und Musik. Sie nannten es Woodstock. Ein Jahr später fing eine historische, mit einem Oscar ausgezeichnete Dokumentation die Essenz der Musik, die elektrisierenden Darbietungen und die Erfahrungen derjenigen ein, die das Ereignis erlebt haben. In einer neuen, erstmals in High Definition abgetasteten Version zeigt der vorliegende Director'ss Cut die legendären Darbietungen von 17 heute weltbekannten Künstlern (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
David Holzman's diary : a film( Visual )

5 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a spoof of cinema vérité, this film purports to be a filmic diary of one week in the life of filmmaker David Holzman (L.M. Kit Carson). Holzman, a fictitious character, constantly films himself. The Nagra sound recorder is seen in the frame recording while he speaks into a microphone. The film begins with Holzman stating the date: "This is July 14, 1967," and ruminating on his recently receiving an A-1 draft notice. He quotes Godard's maxim "The cinema is truth 24 frames-per-second." Holzman decides to make a diary of his daily life. He drives along West 71st Street in New York, describing the famous houses. Back at his apartment, he points to photographs of his girlfriend Penny (Eileen Dietz) and describes her characteristics. When she arrives for a visit, he follows her with his camera and tells her how to move. She avoids looking into the camera, and tells him to stop filming her. After Penny leaves, Holzman muses over Penny's refusal to be in his film. He pontificates on the impossibility of creating a true diary documentary, since once an event is filmed, it is no longer reality. Holzman films Penny sleeping; she awakens, enraged at his filming her, and storms out. With Penny no longer available, Holzman begins filming unknown women on the street. One comes on to him; another, annoyed at his following her, turns to him and tells him to beat it. Penny breaks up with him, and Holzman begins losing faith in film. At night, he goes to Penny's apartment and films it from the outside. A cop catches him, and takes him upstairs to Penny. She sends the cop away, and then Holzman. The end of the film diary is forced when someone steals his film equipment while he is away at a funeral. Holzman's last sentiment is that he wishes he could have learned something from the film

Es ist der Höhepunkt der Hippie-Bewegung: ein gigantischer Protest gegen das Establishment, gegen die amerikanische Regierung und den Vietnamkrieg. Ein Festival mit unvergesslichen Konzerten und einer magischen Atmosphäre: The Who, Santana, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker ... - fast alle Stars der Rock- und Folkszene kommen, unzählige neue werden geboren. Auf einer kleinen Farm im US-Bundessaat New York hatten die Veranstalter rund 50.000 Besucher erwartet, etwa eine halbe Million Menschen strömen am Freitag, den 15. August 1969 auf das Gelände. Dieser Ansturm übertrifft die kühnsten Erwartungen. Chaotische Zustände brechen aus. Die Zufahrtsstraßen sind verstopft, Müllberge türmen sich und die 60 Toilettenhäuschen reichen hinten und vorne nicht aus. In einem Meer aus Schlamm und Dreck singen, tanzen und feiern über 400.000 Menschen für den Frieden ... (, 8.2007)
