Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

Available on iTunes
As members of the feminist art collective Pussy Riot, three women performed a 40 second 'punk prayer' inside Russia's main cathedral. This performance led to their arrest on charges of religious hatred, culminating in a trial that has reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society forever. As Nadia, Masha and Katia defend their convictions from a cage, we learn from their family and friends what transformed these women from political activists into modern day icons. Filmed over the course of six months, Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin grant us unparalleled access and exclusive footage of the three incredible women behind the now famous coloured balaclavas.
