The Moscow Music Peace Festival Project


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, Mötley Crüe, Scorpion and Jon Bon Jovi, their iconic managers and some of the 200,000 Russian concert-goers as they recount their misadventures in a city at the brink of transformation. Combined with hours of footage from this historic event, they reflect on the onstage drama, backstage brawls and massive crowd awakening as the West brings noise and nuisance to a city begging for the winds of change.
