Synopsis:
When feminist art collective Pussy Riot performed a 40 second 'punk prayer' inside Russia's main cathedral, they were arrested on charges of religious hatred in a trial that has reverberated around the world.
Filmed over the course of six months, Oscar nominated director Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin grant us unparalleled access and exclusive footage of the incredible three women behind their now-famous colourful balaclavas. As they 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.

Pussy Riot documentary - Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer review by CM

Worth a watch. Well put together. Developed my respect for the women; their courage, their audacity, their conviction in the face of Russian force. Developed respect for their loving parents and partners too.
