Remember Pussy Riot? The Russian punk band/anarchist movement / ”oppositional art” crew that raged ceaselessly against the Kremlin’s Draconian lawmakers has been under fire in its homeland even as global attention has shifted elsewhere, but that didn’t stop HBO Documentaries from getting on its VICE flow with Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer.This full-length doc from Roast Beef TV directors Mike Lerner & Maxim Pozdorovkin purports to go behind the masks, digging into Riot’s origins, missions, and influence in the Russian zeitgeist. It also covers the fateful trial of three members of the band, in which all three received prison sentences for “hooliganism”. Two of them are still incarcerated.

Check out the documentary’s teaser above, and tune into HBO on June 10th for the full documentary
