Paul McCartney in Red Square is a live DVD produced and directed by Mark Haefeli starring Paul McCartney, released in June 2005. It is composed of footage taken during his concerts in Moscow's Red Square and St Petersburg's Palace Square. Songs from Beatles, Wings and solo albums are performed. Each song is interspersed with interviews regarding the Beatles' banning in the Soviet Union in the 1960s, and how fans had to spend large sums of money on buying records from the black market. The film also supports the fact that The Beatles were an impetus behind a social revolution, which led to the fall of communism in Russia.[citation needed]

Both "Paul McCartney in Red Square" as well as "Paul McCartney in St. Petersburgh", earned Mark Haefeli Grammy nominations for 'Best Music, Variety and Comedy Special". Red Square also won The Mipcon for Best DVD of the year in 2007.
