Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This is the best time, this is the worst time; This is the year of wisdom, this is the year of ignorance; This is the time of faith, this is the time of doubt; This is the season of light, this is the season of darkness; This is the spring of hope, this is the winter of disappointment; We are all going straight to heaven. We are all going in the opposite direction.

——Inscription

In 1969, the United States was shrouded in the dull atmosphere of the Vietnam War. 550000 American soldiers were sent to the Vietnam battlefield. In 1969, an average of 800 soldiers were killed every month; On the other hand, the fierce domestic anti war activities have plunged the United States into frenzy. Most Americans are in a mood of depression, doubt, anger and dissatisfaction, especially young people. In sharp contrast, I saw the innocent faces and happy scenes of these young people gathered at the Woodstock Festival in the suburbs of New York in the documentary Woodstock 1969. They gave up their gentle manners and regular education and swayed wildly with rock music on the muddy grass in torrential rain. They play, play, daze and meditate; They sing, dance, take drugs and do performance art… They express and vent their disgust at war, laugh at and despise hypocritical politics and mediocre culture in this form.

Woodstock 1969, directed by Michael Wadley, spent more than three hours recording the three-day anti-cultural movement with the theme of “love and peace” on the farm in August 1969 – the most famous music festival in history: Woodstock.

Today, China’s music festival culture has gradually grown and popularized from minority and marginal culture. As a form of business and entertainment, more and more people participate in it and enjoy the happiness of freedom and release. However, few people understand that as the originator and milestone of the music festival, the face and history of Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 give it more significance. It records a historical song written by young hippies in the late 1960s who advocated “love and peace” in the process of American social history, and a real utopia built by music as a bridge.

“We expected that 50000 people would come every day, but one million people came. I was hungry for two days, because we couldn’t go out to buy food, so I had to eat cornflakes. These children are very good. They always’ sir ‘, sir’, thank you, thank you, thank you. No one can complain about these children. This music festival is too big for the world This is true in all circles. Nothing has ever happened like this. ”

This is the beginning of the documentary Woodstock 1969. A local old man is being interviewed by the film crew. In the first few months of the festival, the residents there also regarded those young people who were about to come as monsters and strongly opposed the festival – just like my attitude before watching the film. However, when I saw the first band holding a guitar on the stage and hundreds of thousands of people under the stage began to cheer and boil, my nerves couldn’t control my lacrimal glands.

It is hard to imagine that a music festival organized by only four people and held in a remote suburb has such great power that it attracts millions of people to drive from all over the country. This is the power of music, the ideal power of “love and peace” in music, and the power of the soul. 450000 people gathered around the stage and on the grass of the town, singing and dancing. A million more people were blocked on the way to the music festival – because of the traffic jam, the organizers had to use helicopters to pick up the performing bands and some of the audience. In the picture, you can see from the aerial photos that tens of thousands of all kinds of cars are parked and crowded on every land and road in the town, and the boiling scene of the sea of people makes people restless for a long time.

What is more difficult to imagine is that in such a case, in a small town with millions of people, there was no violence in Woodstock Music Festival with hippie culture and no police for three days. As the organizer said excitedly at the music festival: “This is not an end, this is just a beginning. There is no police here, there is no situation here, there is only love and peace. This generation and this culture are far different from the old generation and their culture. There are no police officers, no guns, no societies, no fierce battles. Everyone works hand in hand and helps each other. These will play when we come here It works, and they will continue, no matter what happens. When people return to their cities, this will always happen. ”

In this age full of confusion and discontent, on the grassland with poor conditions, people never complain about the heavy rain, mud, hunger and rudeness. They can have fun in any form – including ubiquitous sex and drugs, strangers making friends with each other and expressing their purest ideal: love and peace. “These conditions did not affect me and my friends. We enjoyed the music, always kept excited and made new friends. This is the second enlightenment Woodstock brought to us – in this group of young people in illusion, strangers can soon become friends and everyone can get along like brothers and sisters. You can feel that kind of close friendship and collective appeal. This spirit of fraternity is perhaps what I miss most about the late 1960s. ” As one participant said in a later interview.

As for artistic techniques, the most successful part of the film is that for a complex and chaotic Music Festival with atmosphere and spirit as the soul, director Wadleigh truly restored everything at that time and place through the film, so that all audiences, no matter what era and land they are in, can be immersive and infected with surging emotions and tears. According to my estimation, the proportion of music performance in the film is about 60%, while the proportion of people and scenes is controlled at 40%. I think this state is just good.

In the documentary, Wadleigh repeatedly used multi screen techniques to reflect all aspects of the music festival from different aspects. Peace, human rights, the generation gap, the relationship between man and nature and other details are captured by the camera and presented to us one by one. There are always two pictures with left and right divisions in the film, which are described at the same time. Sometimes one side is a close-up of the characters and the other is the perspective of the audience; Sometimes, during a band’s performance, different details and states of several musicians can be presented separately. Such multiple screens sometimes complement each other and sometimes compare with each other, making the whole film more plump.

As a bystander, the director also quietly expressed many metaphorical meanings. For example, those who did not buy tickets stepped through the barbed wire to enter the site, which symbolized breaking the fence, those people of different skin colors gathered together, which meant equality and fraternity, as well as the wanton youth sliding on the muddy red soil and the magnanimous innocence bathing in the river. Men, women, adults, children, whites, blacks… Their dancing shadows flow freely under the dark blue sky in the evening. You can feel the purest beauty and joy from this picture. In particular, John Sebastian, who was accidentally pulled onto the stage to save the scene, sang the younger generation. The lens was aimed at the young children brought to the music festival by Hippie parents. They had golden curly hair, simple eyes without fear, and fat drum bodies running all over the ground. Watching them curiously fiddle with musical instruments, they really looked like the angels painted by the virgin. The director obviously places his hopes on the younger generation – I hope the shadow of war will not repeat its mistakes on them.

The film was released in 1970 and won the 1971 Oscar for best documentary feature film, as well as the nomination for best editing and best sound. With the evolution of rock music and the changes in the age and knowledge structure of people listening to rock music, rock music is also falling rapidly. Therefore, after Woodstock 1969, we will never see such a rock music documentary again, and such a music festival will disappear together. After all, Utopia is utopia. It lacks all kinds of realistic considerations and support, and can not last for a long time and healthily. However, it is still the best carrier for people to escape from reality and ugliness and place their ideals, love and peace.

Feldman, a historian in Woodstock, once said, “what people experience here is an absolutely once-in-a-lifetime event. Its components are complex and cannot be copied.” In the following ten years, Woodstock gradually faded out of the stage of art, but it became the spiritual Holy Land in the hearts of anti mainstream culturists. Although the last two music festivals held by Woodstock 20 years later can no longer find hippie culture, and now music festivals large and small all over the world have become a part of entertainment and business culture, countless young people can still find their ideal Utopia and eternal spiritual guidance from these exciting images in 69 years.
