Documentary streaming and on-demand service CuriosityStream has announced starting production on The Woodstock Bus, the story about an automotive icon from the most famous rock concert in history.
Produced by Halifax, Nova Scotia-headquartered Arcadia Content, the one-off documentary journeys across America to find and restore “Light,” the iconic psychedelic Volkswagen bus of Woodstock, ahead of the music festival’s 50th anniversary this summer.
The Woodstock Bus, which was a 2017 Realscreen Summit Showdown finalist, will chronicle the efforts of a group of unlikely friends as they set out across America to help artist Robert “Dr. Bob” Hieronimus resurrect his greatest work and the lost symbol of a generation. The friends will traverse the U.S. to solve the 50-year old mystery of what happened to Light, with the aim of restoring and repainting the bus to take it back to Woodstock.
“We’re working to bring the Woodstock story to life, searching for a symbol-covered bus, that’s symbolic of an event, that’s symbolic of an era… and a generation,” said Arcadia Content executive producer John Wesley Chisholm in a statement. “It’s the search and the journey that reveals something of the Woodstock feeling. The bus brings joy and smiles to people’s faces. Whatever your dream is, wherever you want to go, the bus will take you there. It’s a symbol of our enduring hope for a better future.”
The Woodstock Bus makes its world premiere on CuriosityStream this summer.
