March 18th, 2013 · Comments

The 2013 South By South West Film Festival, in Austin, Texas, is the setting for this Fresh Talk feature. Cathy Byrd meets filmmakers Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin to learn more about Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, the documentary they recently completed.The film tells the story of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (Nadia), Maria Alyokhina (Masha), and Yekaterina Samutsevich (Katia), members of the radical feminist art collective Pussy Riot. In early 2012, the three were arrested and put on trial for performing a 40 second "punk prayer" inside Moscow’s main orthodox cathedral. The world has been calling for the young women's release ever since Nadia, Masha and Katia were detained, charged and imprisoned for the crime of religious hatred.
