WOODSTOCK (The Director's Cut)
1970, Warner Bros., 228 min, USA, Dir: Michael Wadleigh

In THE OMEGA MAN, it’s no wonder that Charlton Heston, sole survivor of the human race, spends his days endlessly watching WOODSTOCK, the ultimate time capsule of the Love Generation. If any film captured the heady idealism, the free-form partying, drug-taking and love-making, and above all the great music of the late 1960s, this is it. The Who, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Sly & The Family Stone, Richie Havens, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana - need we say more? We’ll be screening the much-extended Director’s Cut of the film, featuring many songs and performers not included in the original release version.


DON’T LOOK BACK
1967, Pennebaker Hegedus Films, 96 min, USA, Dir: D.A. Pennebaker

The young Bob Dylan - scathingly brilliant, arrogant, rude, witty - is followed by doc filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker on his triumphant concert tour of England in 1965, accompanied by legendary manager Albert Grossman, folk singer Joan Baez, various groupies, journalists and hangers-on in a no-holds-barred, thrilling landmark of a documentary. With Donovan, John Mayall, Alan Price, Allen Ginsburg, Marianne Faithfull, Bobby Neuwirth.
