Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire January 19, 2006 at 9:23AM

The World Documentary Competition at Sundance '06 includes a new film by director Julien Temple about the legendary UK Glastonbury music festival. Glastonbury follows the evolution of the festival since it began in 1970, through both professional footage and home videos collected from festival-goers. "I think [the festival] does bring together a certain kind of free-thinking Englishness that in a very interesting way mirrors the changes that have happened in the wider culture," says Temple, who first attended as a university student in 1971. The film premieres Saturday, January 21. BBC reports.
