Summary

It's late 1969 & 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 as an 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 & his friends break into a mothballed missile silo & 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 & political issues of the time, Woodstock Rising is a coming-of-age tale couched in free love, rock anthems, & revolution as well as a chronicle of an era whose causes continue to speak to us.
