Counter Culture is an edgy and entertaining 13-part documentary series exploring mainstream society’s counter cultures. Fascinating groups of people open up about their alternative lifestyle choices. Counter cultures explored in the show range from naturists, drag queens, bodybuilders and more. We film ordinary people with extraordinary passions. Counter Culture seeks to entertain while at the same time offers an eye-opening view into different lifestyles that many people are not even aware of. Executive Producer, Lucilla Blankenberg, feels that the show will go a long way to debunking many myths and stereotypes that people have about ‘the other’.
