About


     Hello there! My name is Fran O'Brien and my project aims to create a documentary film born out of a journey to the original spot where Woodstock took place 50 years ago. The 50th Anniversary of Woodstock has had a lot of complications and though the larger Festival is up in the air, there is still 4 nights of shows taking place regardless on the hillside where I sat so many years ago. The documentary will explore the trip that is life, and reconnect the intention and spirit of the original Woodstock to the present. 

We are trying to raise $6,000. $3,000 to rent and fuel an RV for 8 days for the journey from Minnesota to New York, $1,000 for the tickets and travel expenses, and $2,000 to pay for the Camera person and Sound Person.

We will revisit the past and explore the future. We will seek out those who were there 50 years ago and connect them with those who wish they had been. We will ask the larger and deeper and often uncomfortable questions about life and the pursuit of peace and understanding as we all get ready to one day pass on. What marks did we leave? Why did we leave them? And how do we make our way through this rocky road ahead of us. Please join us as we make our way back to the Garden. Back, to Woodstock.

Risks and challenges

On the open road there is a long list of things that could go wrong. In this particular journey, problems make good drama for the documentary and would be almost welcome. But as I'm no longer a spring chicken, I would do my best to keep things moving along as smoothly as possible. I will push forward no matter what happens, and make it to the hillside in time for the event.
