This film about the 1970 rock festival on Randall's Island, New York is part rockumentary and part docudrama. The concert featured many acts, including Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, and Van Morrison, and footage of their performances is featured. Unfortunately, the festival eventually resulted in a power struggle over the box-office receipts that was so divisive that the festival was never held again, and that aspect of the event is enacted in a dramatization.
