The Woodstock of House
A documentary detailing the triumph of a genre of music that was attacked and seemingly destroyed by mainstream America in the late 1970s for being too black, too Latin, and too gay. This film explores the music's mutation, development, and re-birth by disaffected African American teenagers on the South Side of Chicago in an underground culture of marginalized, largely homosexual nightclub constituents. This new genre, House Music, has become the third-largest musical genre in the world. This is the untold story of the role of Chicago's Chosen Few DJs in the creation and popularization of this international musical genre and celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the annual Chosen Few Music Festival, deemed the "Woodstock of House," that brings 50,000 people of different races, ages, sexual orientations, and class together in an environment of unity, peace, and love without conflict in arguably the most violent city in America.
