Award-winning Pussy Riot documentary screening

Posted at 4:00 pm, June 13, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment

The Sunday Society, Club Des Femmes and Fringe Film Festival are joining forces to bring you a special preview screening of this year’s Sundance Film Festival Best Documentary winner, ‘Pussy Riot –  A Punk Prayer‘ this Sunday June 16. Punk-rock band Pussy Riot have transcended from feminist activists to modern political icons since performing a 40 second ‘punk prayer’ inside Moscow’s Orthodox cathedral during February last year. Their actions subsequently led to an astonishing two-year prison sentence for what was described by Moscow police as ‘hooliganism on grounds of religious hatred’. Over the course of six months, director’s Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin received un-paralleled access into the lives of Nadia, Masha and Katia as they attempted to fight Russia’s justice system in one of the most controversial cases of recent times. Book now for this rare screening.
