It's late 1969 and Communist China has successfully launched its
first satellite. Inspired by this feat, a group of college students
in Laguna Beach, California, set out to put their own satellite
into orbit in homage to the recent Woodstock Festival.
A young Canadian graduate student at the University of
California finds himself at the centre of the mayhem when he and
his friends break into a mothballed missile silo and commandeer
everything they need, including a nuclear warhead, to blast the
Woodstock Nation into the space age. The activists have big plans
for their loot, schemes that may well culminate in the Light Show
to End All Light Shows in the Nevada desert.
An extraordinary black comedy shot full of the social and
political issues of the time, Woodstock Rising is a coming-of-age
tale couched in free love, rock anthems, and revolution as well as
a chronicle of an era whose causes continue to speak to us.
