Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

Pussy Riot A Punk Prayer

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 and culminated 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 within a cage in the courtroom, we learn from their family and friends what transformed these women from political activists into modern day icons.
