PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER

 

HBO SPOTLIGHT Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer The story of the controversial Russian Feminist Art Collective premieres on HBO in June. On Feb. 21, 2012, members of the feminist art collective Pussy Riot, donning their colorful trademark balaclavas, or ski masks, 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” sleeveless dresses and disrupting social order, Nadia, Masha and Katia were accused of religious hatred in a trial that reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society.

An official selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where it received the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Punk Spirit, PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER tells their story with exclusive interviews and unprecedented access to courtroom footage when it kicks off the HBO Documentary Films summer series:

MONDAY, JUNE 10 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

For HBO: supervising producer, Sara Bernstein; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
