Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

Feminist art collective Pussy Riot participated in a 40-second “punk prayer protest” on the altar of Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral before being detained. Arrested and tried for trespassing, wearing “inappropriate” dresses and disrupting social order, members Nadia, Masha, and Katia were accused of religious hatred in a trial that reverberated around the world. Exclusive interviews and unprecedented access to courtroom footage garnered this film the 2013 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Punk Spirit. (2013, 88 min. Dir. Mike Lerner & Maxim Pozdorovkin. Color, sound, DV.)
