Woodstock: A Snapshot in Time

Two filmmakers, one an alumni of the original Woodstock Festival, the other, a younger Brit who only read about the sixties, plan a return to the original site in hopes of re- kindling the spirit of the time. They meet up with the philosophic and political icons of the era who encourage them to believe in a more just world. In the meantime, they fall into their own kooky relationship, perhaps an accident of working closely together or a necessity born out of a need for spiritual growth for the changing times.

Director Statement

I work directly from my life, especially in my film work. I believe having grown up in a movie theater run by my grandad and dad has given me a warped sense of reality and that I only understand life when it is projected back to me on the screen.
