WOODSTOCK OR BUST at AWIAFF April 27th.
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.
