For three days in August 1969, nearly a half-million young people descended upon Max Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York for the rock ‘n’ roll event that defined a generation. Mythologized for 50 years, the filmmakers set the record straight with “Creating Woodstock,” the most comprehensive examination of how the festival came to be.
User Reviews: This is the 2nd Documentary on Woodstock I have seen in the last couple of months. The other one entitled, "Woodstock: Three Days That Defined A Generation", I felt was considerably better. Even though both discuss a lot of the same key points. The difference is that the other film looked at the three day festival like a news reporter, and presented things informativly and systematically. Whereas this film has too many interviews with the chief organizers and promoters. Which rather then give more depth to the subject, gave it (in my opinion), too much personal retrospect.
