Youth Gone Wild: Glam Metal Mayhem in Soviet Moscow


This archive-based, feature-documentary reveals the inside story of Moscow's first Woodstock-style rock concert in 1989 through the eyes of the Soviet Union’s last generation. With access to hours of on-stage and back-stage footage and interviews from festival organizers and band members from Skid Row, Mötley Crüe and Bon Jovi, we hear from some of the 200,000 young festival-goers, crew members and 1000 Red Army soldiers who lined the aisles as they all seized an unprecedented shared experience and raged against an authority that was quickly crumbling around them.
