Film-maker Martin Scorsese looks back over the impact of The Statue of Liberty on the twentieth century, her evolution and what she meant to people of the past and what she continues to mean after September eleventh, 2001.
Haven't seen the film, but I was there at the concert at Antioch College in the summer of 1970. What I remember mostly was Van Morrison, David Peel being chased by some guy with a knife in front of the student union, and a large plastic trash can full of jello and dry ice! Quite an introduction to college life!
As I recall, the summer of '70 was the season of Woodstock wannabe festivals. The Goose Lake Festival in Jackson, Michigan comes to mind(lots of hard drugs, no show bands, and hostility from the locals)
thought a film was made of this. Also Isle of Wight, various others.
The other one I went to that year was the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Not a rock festival, but lots of good music including Fairport OCnvention in their prime!
