Pussy Riot : A Punk Prayer

pussy riot dvd 2

If you’ve been keeping up with the human rights news from Russia, you’ve probably already heard of the band, Pussy Riot.  Two of the young women from the band were arrested and imprisoned for 21 months.  After their release in late 2013, they spent time in the States touring prisons and meeting with human rights activists.  This past weekend the women were detained again by Russian police.

We’ve got the new DVD, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer for you to check out as well as the new book, Words Will Break Cement : the Passion of Pussy Riot written by Masha Gessen.

Follow news on the band through U.K. newspaper The Guardian.
Read the band’s bio on Wikipedia.
