In August 1969, 500,000 people gathered at a farm in upstate New York. What happened there was far more than just a concert. Woodstock tells the story of a legendary event that defined a ... See full summary »
An uncannily revealing portrait of American photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe and the vibrant community of Jewish retirees they obsessively focused their camera's lens on in the sunburned paradise of 1970s Miami Beach.
Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club's hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.Written by
This is a first hand look into the inside of the amazing Studio 54. Co-Founder Ian Schrager looks back and gives an intimate run-down of the disco's creation and rise to complete wonderland, and it's ultimate demise as it came crashing down quicker than a snort of blow. This documentary explores the experiences, first hand accounts, from many of the employees caught up in the whirlwind of this Xanadu on New York's 54th Avenue. The photo's and videos from inside the club are as much eye-opening as they are fascinating. Studio 54 was a place to feel safe and feel free, a place to live life to it's fullest every night and escape the prejudices, injustices, and cruel world of reality outside its doors. It drew the likes of Liza Minelli, Michael Jackson, Liz Taylor....and so many more from the global A-List of Celebrity in the late '70's. It was a time and experience like no other in recent history, and the place to be (if you could only get in the door). Don't miss this exceptional inside account of the iconic discotheque Studio 54.
