Movies We Can't Wait For: Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

HBO is set to release a documentary called Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer about the Russian feminist punk group who spoke out against Putin and the Russian Catholic Church in a number of "riots" around the country before three members were arrested in 2012 for hooliganism and "blasphemy," and two of them, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, were sentenced to two years in prison. The group, with their neon balaclavas and fearless musical approach, has gained worldwide attention and support, especially following the Russian government's extreme reaction to their largely peaceful protests. It will certainly be interesting to view the trial through the American lens, considering the group's vehement anti-capitalist stance (despite invitations from Bjork and Madonna, they have stated that, "The only performances well participate in are illegal ones. We refuse to perform as part of the capitalist system, at concerts where they sell tickets), but regardless, we can't wait to have a more personal look at "the faces behind the masks."

The trailer to get you pumped:
