Experience the phenomenon that was the Newport Folk Festival, where Bob Dylan played his first electric performance and legends like Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, and Pete Seeger shared the stage. This groundbreaking Oscar–nominated concert doc, shot in gorgeous black and white, brings us back to the thriving, idealistic musical movement of the '60s. Award-winning filmmaker Murray Lerner weaves together historical footage of performances and interviews, taken over the course of four years at the festival, into an intimate record of a pivotal time in music—and in American culture at large.
