Pussy Riot: Death to Prison, Freedom to Protest

Loading...
In less than three years, Pussy Riot has morphed from a little-known feminist protest band to an international cause celebre. As its two jailed members are freed from prison under an amnesty, we chronicle the group's story so far; Pussy Riot was founded in 2011, but shot to greater prominence after appearing in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior in February of 2012, to perform an obscenity-laced song called Punk Prayer which attacked the Orthodox Church's support for President Vladimir Putin. The group caused quite a stir at the 2014 Winter Olympics when they interrupted the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Alexandra

Acclaimed director Alexander Sokurov's beautiful new film explores the enclosed all-male environment of a Russian troop regiment in war-torn Chechnya. In the oppressive heat of a remote military outpost, an old woman (legendary Russian opera star Galina Vishnevskaya) arrives in search of her twenty-seven-year-old grandson, whom she has not seen in seven years. What she discovers is a world devoid of warmth or comfort and with a constant undercurrent of violence, in which questions of life and death are decided every hour of every day. Exquisitely photographed and directed, Alexandra is an extraordinary examination of masculinity and the mental and physical scars wrought by conflict.
