Pussy Riot: The Movement (2013) (trailer)

0
Narrated by Daryl Hannah, Pussy Riot – The Movement could not be more timely. It’s as if it had been ripped from the headlines today, with Russia’s seizure of Crimea and its movements against the Ukraine. The women of Pussy Riot called President Vladimir Putin a liar and aggressor before the world had to deal with it.
 
Pussy Riot – The Movement is the only documentary to tell the full story of Nadia Tolokonnikvia, Masha Alyokhina and Katia Samutsevich.  From their early lives that shaped them – to the trial that rallied the world to their cause. From Nadia’s and Masha’s two years in prison and hunger strikes – to their “early release” in December 2013 – the movie covers it all, including the post-prison beatings at the Sochi Olympics and their commitment to “riot on” with “Justice Zone,” a non-profit dedicated to prison reform.
 
Pussy Riot – The Movement goes beyond the women’s story to detail the perversions of the Russian Constitution by ex-KGB officer Putin, a document that provides freedoms based on Western democratic principle. Russian dissidents who have been imprisoned on trumped up charges, artists who are reviled for their work and lawyers and writers who call the courts corrupt and medieval tell their stories of life in Russia today.
