Russia's Feminist Punk Rockers!

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer is available on HBO Go and select HBO viewings.

HBO Go and HBO are currently airing a film I’d eagerly been anticipating all year: the Pussy Riot documentary. “Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer”  follows the arrest, trial and incarceration of three members of the Russian feminist punk band who made shockwaves around the world last year for one of their public protests.

Pussy Riot formed in response to the third term of President Vladmir Putin. It’s an anonymous collective who stage guerrilla performances/protests while wearing colorful balaclavas over their faces to hide their identities. Their most famous protest was in February 2012, when several members stormed the altar of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savoir — a space where only the church patriarch is allowed — and briefly performed punk music. The women sang about sexism and spoke out against about President Putin (a major no-no) before getting yanked off stage. The protest lasted a mere 40 seconds long. Keep reading »
