In Production

Feminist punk rock activists stand up to President Vladimir Putin and pay the price for showing the world Russia's slide into a totalitarian system.

Synopsis

Free Pussy Riot – The Movie goes beyond the trial and imprisonment of the women who sang a punk prayer in Moscow’s main cathedral calling for the removal of President Vladimir Putin from power.

Current through July 2013, the film explains why a female rock band asked 'Mary, Mother of God' to rid Russia of President Vladimir Putin's increasingly harsh and repressive regime. It details the lawlessness of the court system, the perversion of the Constitution and the backward slide into a totalitarian system supported by the Russian Orthodox Church.

The film documents the growing repression by the Putin regime and includes extensive interviews with members of Pussy Riot, their families, numerous dissidents and coverage of the huge anti-government protests that took place this past year. Footage also includes a trip to the labor camp where one of the women is being held. A portion of the proceeds will support the legal fund for the imprisoned young women.
