U.S. Girls : 'Woodstock '99' Video
26th October 2020

After being shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize, U.S. Girls have shared the short film for track 'Woodstock '99'.

Polaris and CBC Music present 'Woodstock ’99,' a short film by Meg Remy, Norah Sadava and Colin Medley.  Inspired by the work and movement of Blondell Cummings, 'Woodstock ’99' invites you to remember where you were when the infamous music festival went off the rails.  Long time video collaborators, Meg and Colin, add writer/actor Nora Sadava to the mix for this 16mm film project.

U.S. Girls' latest album, Heavy Light, was released in March this year to great critical acclaim.

“A rush of indelible non sequiturs – vibraphone solos, ripsaws – gives it all an unexpectedly thrilling buzz.”
