(Launch) - The Dave Matthews
Band, Metallica, Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Jimi Hendrix
and Carlos Santana
are among the artists featured in "My Generations," a new documentary film that "probes the culture, myth and evolution of the Woodstock phenomenon." The film, directed by Academy Award-winning director Barbara
Kopple, also captures appearances at the three Woodstock festivals (1969, 1994, 1999) by the Who, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Rage Against The Machine, the Allman Brothers, Green Day, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Limp Bizkit, Nine Inch Nails
and Cypress Hill. "'My Generations' is a film about generation contrast and change," says a spokesperson. "It is about peace, love and violence; about commercial exploitation, music and artistry; and about a profound desire for fraternity and self-fulfillment." "My Generations" has its world premiere on the Encore network Aug. 17.
