20th June 2013

Dear All

We thought this might be of interest.

 

Kind regards

Ute

On Thursday 27th June at the Rich Mix Cinema in Shoreditch DocHouse are presenting the hotly anticipated documentary PUSSY RIOT- A PUNK PRAYER followed by a Q&A with one of the film’s directors.

The world has watched through extensive media coverage as three members of the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot have been arrested and jailed on charges of religious hatred, in one of the greatest ‘show trials’ of recent times. However, we know little of what is going on behind the scenes and who the girls really are. With unparalleled access PUSSY RIOT – A PUNK PRAYER puts a personal face on an act of rebellion set to change the face of Russian society forever.

More details can be found below and here: bit.ly/PussyRiotdoc

DocHouse Presents:

Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer +Co-director Q&A

Thursday 27th June | Rich Mix Cinema |8pm | £7 (£5 conc)

Russia/UK – 2013 – 86 mins

 

On February 21st, 2012, following the controversial re-election of Vladimir Putin, Russian feminist punk group Pussy Riot committed a very public act of defiance on the altar of Moscow’s most venerated cathedral. Their 40 second ‘punk

prayer’, performed in their now iconic multi-coloured balaclavas, openly challenged Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church, and set in motion one of the greatest ‘show trials’ of recent times.

 

Pussy Riot were immediately arrested on charges of religious hatred and when three members of the group were sentenced to three years in a penal colony the severity of the punishment galvanised international support and protests across the world.

 

With unparalleled access, Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer puts a personal face on an act of rebellion, going beyond the media furore and following three women prepared to defend their actions whatever it may cost them.

 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with one of the film’s directors, Mike Lerner.
