Third Fridays at the Full Frame Theater: Free Screening October 18 of “Pussy Riot—A Punk Prayer”

Members of the band Pussy Riot

Members of the band Pussy Riot

On February 21, 2012, an Orthodox church in Moscow was the site of a guerrilla punk performance by Pussy Riot, an all-female group of activist performance artists. Three of the members were arrested and eventually convicted and sentenced to prison for hooliganism. Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin’s Pussy Riot—A Punk Prayer, the next film in Full Frame’s Third Friday series, chronicles the sensational trial, the groundswell movements in support of the incarcerated, and the complicated intersection of state and church in Russia. Both heartrending and inspiring, Pussy Riot is a cautionary tale about freedom of speech and public dissent that turns a deep-focus lens on the meaning of performance and persecution half a world away. Official trailer.
