Taking Woodstock free pdf Before there was a Woodstock Concert, there was Elliot Tiber working to make a go of his parents' hotel, the El Monaco. It wasn't easy and in the process, Elliot became the area's official issuer of event permits - not that anybody else wanted that position. Then, in the summer of 1969, Elliot Tiber's life changed in a way he never could have foreseen. Greenwich Village had become the mecca for gays in America. There, Elliot had socialised with the likes of Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Andy Warhol and a talented young photographer named Robert Mapplethorpe and yet had managed to keep his gay life a secret from his family. Then on Friday, June 27, Elliot walked into the Stonewall Inn - and witnessed the riot that would galvanise the gay movement in the United States. And on July 17, when Elliot read that the Woodstock Concert promoters had lost their license to stage the show in Wallkill, he called to offer his help in finding a new venue. In the days that followed, Elliot found himself swept up in a vortex that would change his life forever. The events that unfolded during that hot New York summer have come to be recognised as major turning points in our cultural history. Few, however, have enjoyed Elliot Tiber's unique view of those events. TAKING WOODSTOCK is the funny, touching and true story of the man who enabled Woodstock to take place. TAKING WOODSTOCK is now a Major Motion Picture, directed by Ang Lee, and a competition entry for this years Palme d' Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The film will be on general release from November 13th 2009.
