The documentary film about the search for and re-creation of the 1963 Volkswagen Standard Microbus that became a rolling symbol of the Woodstock Art and Music Fair debuts August 12 on CuriosityStream, an on-demand service from the founder of Discovery Channel.

The Woodstock Bus “follows unlikely friends as they join forces to help artist Robert ‘Dr. Bob’ Hieronimus find and resurrect his most famous work — the iconic Volkswagen bus known as the Woodstock Light Bus,” the service reports. “Named for the band ‘Light’ that owned the van, it is perhaps the most valuable piece of American automotive art ever.

“The CuriosityStream special chronicles the race across America’s highways, back roads and junkyards to solve the 50-year-old mystery, restore and repaint the bus and take it back to Woodstock.”
