Placebo: Alt.Russia is a unique award winning documentary following the journey of alternative rock band Placebo, performing in ten cities across Russia - during a time when the country was at the forefront of the world’s current affairs.

Narrated by the band’s frontman Stefan Olsdal, the documentary offers a revealing insight into the alternative cultures in Russia’s major cities and the forces that seek to obstruct them. The band met artists, architects, animators, and musicians on a quest to find out about Russia’s alternative creative scenes.
