Pussy Riot Documentary to Premiere on HBO in June

 

 

The Pussy Riot documentary that was bought by HBO at Sundance will premiere on the channel in early June. Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer was directed and produced by Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin and originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18th. The film follows the feminist punk group, who were arrested and prosecuted after their staged prayer protest in a Russian cathedral.

“It’s one of the stories of the decade,” Lerner told Rolling Stone in January. “It’s feminism on trial.” Freed Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevich said she had “no regrets” last month on the anniversary of the protest, though Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina are still imprisoned. Alekhina’s plea to defer her sentence to care for her young child was denied in January, and Russia banned footage of the performance that same month.
