"As the band Placebo approached their 20th anniversary they were given a unique opportunity to play ten cities throughout Russia at a time when Russia was at the forefront of the world’s current affairs, but little was reported outside the country about its internal culture. Fronted by Placebo’s Stefan Olsdal, this documentary explores the alternative cultures of Russia’s major cities. As the tour travelled through the country, the band met artists, architects, animators and musicians on a quest to find out about Russia’s alternative creative scenes. From Krasnoyarsk in Siberia to St. Petersburg on the Baltic Sea, PLACEBO: ALT. RUSSIA takes you on the band’s journey, encountering unforgettable characters along the way and capturing the power and raw emotion of Placebo’s live concerts." (Doc and Roll Festival)

Die Band begegnet russische Künstler*innen, Musiker*innen, Architekt*innen und Animationsfilmer*innen - Kulturschaffende in einem Land, in dem künstlerische Freiheit einen besonderen Stellenwert hat.
