I have always been fascinated by Woodstock. The incredible music of so many legendary artists, the shots of the unfathomably large crowd (surpassed many times since but still uniquely spectacular), the peak of a generation that would so soon experience its unrecoverable abyss at Altamont—an event that should have failed in every way, should have been an epic disaster, and yet somehow resulted in peace, music and pure magic.
An event whose unique circumstances could never be repeated and thus never experienced again by another generation. Fortunately for us all, Woodstock was documented on film (despite occurring in the pre- every instant of life captured on video era), thus allowing future generations a glimpse into the mythic truth.
