Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Filmed over the course of six months, this film tells the incredible story of three young women: Nadia, Masha and Katia. As members of the feminist art collective Pussy Riot, they performed a 40 second punk prayer inside Russia's main cathedral. This performance led to their arrest on charges of religious hatred and culminated in a trial that has reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society forever.

With unparalleled access and exclusive footage, this film looks at the real people behind their now famous colorful balaclavas.

From their family and friends we learn what transformed these women from political activists in to modern day icons. As Nadia, Masha, and Katia defend their convictions from a cage inside the courtroom, those Pussy Riot members still at liberty plan new guerilla performances and cultivate a protest movement across the globe.

Special Features:

Exclusive interview with Katia; Sheffield Film Festival Q&A; Theatrical Trailer

Review

I'm not sure how they got tagged as a "punk" band. Sounds more to me like club music with shouted lyrics and some guitar/bass fuzz. Call it what you will but I think the rawness and spontaneity is wonderful. I was mesmerised with the film because it is astonishing that in this day and age you can be thrown in jail for performing protest songs. Which is what they are. And they should be applauded for pulling off "guerilla" performances with gear you can carry around in grocery store bags.
it doesnt matter if they make records or not. In fact I think that would defeat the entire concept. The "what the hell just happened" approach is WHY this works. Its meant to get your attention and it certainly does. And the name "pussy riot" is frickin ingenious. How can you ignore THAT? Conjures up the image of pissed off cats (perhaps?) with gas masks. AND you get transistor distorto guitar w feedback, stunning pyrotechics via road flares and fire extingwhishers.. No way that can be bad in MY book.
Now I'm not russian, I have never lived or even been there. But despite the facade of a new and improved Russia its pretty clear to me at least that core principles haven't changed much. There are STILL societies where women are treated as second class (or worse) citizens and thats what seems to me is happening here. I fail to understand how a president or country with an entire army at its disposal feels "threatened" by pussy riot. How do they not realise that throwing them in prison is giving them a WORLD STAGE?
If they were men doing this, I think it would be a different story. Just my opinion.

A good summary of the background of the four women charged, their "trials" and the effects on their family members.
