DocHouse Presents: Pussy Riot - A Punk Prayer + Director Q&A

On February 21st, 2012, following the controversial re-election of Vladimir Putin, Russian feminist punk group Pussy Riot committed a very public act of defiance on the altar of Moscow's most venerated cathedral. Their 40 second 'punk prayer', performed in their now iconic multi-coloured balaclavas, openly challenged Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church, and set in motion one of the greatest 'show trials' of recent times.

Pussy Riot were immediately arrested on charges of religious hatred and when three members of the group were sentenced to three years in a penal colony the severity of the punishment galvanised international support and protests across the world.

With unparalleled access, Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer puts a personal face on an act of rebellion, going beyond the media furore and following three women prepared to defend their actions whatever it may cost them.

A significant contribution to the ongoing dialogue assessing the current state of Russian society and culture - The Hollywood Reporter

They're not John, Paul and Ringo, but Nadia, Masha and Katia -- aka Pussy Riot -- are now among the most famous rockers in the world. In Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, they also appear to be the bravest - Variety

Co-director Mike Lerner will join us for a post-screening Q&A.

Please Note: There will not be any adverts or trailers and the film will start promptly at 8pm.
