Pussy Riot -- A Punk Prayer 

When: Fri., Oct. 18, 7 p.m. 2013
If you missed it at Full Frame this year or don't have access to HBOgo, now's your chance to see this documentary about the members of the Russian feminist punk group who were arrested, convicted and sent to prison for hooliganism after their agitprop performance art raised the ire of Putin and the Russian Orthodox church. For those who closely followed the trial on Twitter and the news last year, the court footage and grainy video in this doc won't offer a ton of new insights. For those who don't know the whole story, however, Pussy Riot offers a fascinating account of a modern-day battle for freedom of speech and assembly. The story continues: Just last week, one of the convicted members of Pussy Riot resurfaced in the news after going on (and off) a hunger strike in a Mordovia penal colony. —Emma D. Miller
