Movie Synopsis

Narrated by Daryl Hannah.

Pussy Riot The Movement reviews the volatile events happening under Putin’s regime, including the harsh two-year sentences of Pussy Riot members for singing a punk rock song in Moscow’s most important cathedral.

The film also includes violent demonstrations, interviews with dissidents, lawyers, artists, and other women imprisoned on trumped up charges.

Their message about the growing repression in Russia by Putin’s regime caught the world’s attention like no other dissidents before them and turned the avant garde feminist group into a worldwide symbol of freedom.

The film goes beyond the trial, to the women’s prison experiences. The film crew is embedded in a violent demonstration that produces stunning footage. Included are exclusive interviews with Katia Samutsevich, the Pussy Riot member who was released; families of the women; famed Russian journalist, Masha Gessen; artists; and dissidents. Also included is a trip to the penal colony where Nadia Tolokonnikova was held.
