The Noise and the Nuisance


This archive-based, feature-documentary reveals the inside story of Soviet Moscow's first Woodstock-style rock concert in 1989 to promote peace and combat the country's dramatic increase in drug addiction.  We interview hair-band legends, Ozzy Osborne, Motley Crüe, Scorpion and Jon Bon Jovi as well as their iconic managers many of whom at the time struggled with their own drug addiction as they are confronted with Soviet Russia's harsh standards towards treatment for addicts. Combined with hours of footage from this historic concert they reflect on the onstage drama and backstage brawls as the West brings noise and nuisance to a city begging for the winds of change.
