Pussy Riot - A Punk Prayer: Screening + Q&A

Documentary spotlight on the feminist punk band who dared to take on Putin...

Pussy Riot shot into the public consciousness after a series of anarchic protests in Russia. Their infamous performance in the Christ Saviour Church is the focus of this documentary, which charts the group's artistic and political motives. Protesting against the heavy involvement of the Russian Orthodox Church in state affairs, they were arrested and put on what many have criticised as a show trial. With exclusive access to the trial and interviews with the parents of Nadya, Masha, and Katya, this is a personal and informative overview of who Pussy Riot are, and what they're about. The screening is followed by a Q+A with co-directors Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin. General admission. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
