From award-winning Writer/Director, Leslie Bloom (iTime Travel, Déja Vu, Bill Nye the Science Guy, MAMA EARTH), WOODSTOCK OR BUST was a 2019 Official Selection for “Feature Narrative” at AWAIFF. Produced by Big Film Kids and co-written by Judi Blaze, WOODSTOCK OR BUST is a feel-good nostalgic indie, traveling back in time to 1969 to The Summer of Love – A culture of hippies, drugs and protests against the Vietnam War, leading to a generation in search of free love, peace and music. The Woodstock Music Festival became a beacon for this generation, uniting peace advocates across America.
WOODSTOCK OR BUST follows two 17-year-old singer/songwriters from the West Coast, Lorian (Willow Shields) and Meryl (Meg DeLacy, The Fosters series), who seize the once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel cross-country to show their music at the world famous Woodstock Music Festival in 1969. Embarking on a three-day road trip in a ’65 Mustang convertible heading East to New York, the teens defy all odds – their parents and better judgment – concluding in a road trip that will change their lives forever – full of self discovery, life-changing love, music and friendship.
“It captured the spirit and freedom of the period. Very talented actors, … all the music fitted perfectly,” wrote Pete Staples of the Troggs.
The nostalgic-indie has racked up several accolades, including three wins: ‘Best Picture’, ‘Best Editing’ and ‘Best Cinematography’ at the Los Angeles Film Festival 2019. Watch the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/329025206.
Led by Willow Shields (The Hunger Games series) and Meg DeLacy (The Fosters series, upcoming Stargirl series), WOODSTOCK OR BUST stars Teddy Van Ee (Captain Fantastic). Supporting is Corey Brunish (Coup de Cinema), Elijah Stevenson (Cam, Everything Sucks! series), four-time award winner and nominated, Rachelle Henry (Defining Moments, Missing, Grifters) and Christopher Kozak (Never Let Me Go, Like Crazy).
