Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer focuses on Nadia, Masha, and Katia, three members of the “feminist art collective” Pussy Riot who made international news when they were arrested in Russia for performing a “punk prayer” inside a cathedral. The documentary, which just debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival where it played to a sold out crowd, had its television broadcast rights picked up by HBO Documentary.
 
Directors Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin were given incredible access to Pussy Riot and were able to examine the real people the news reports always skim over when discussing their imprisonment. In a statement from HBO Documentary, the directors were quoted as saying they are “thrilled to be working with HBO on bringing this important story to the world.”
 
Lerner and Pozdorovkin also produced the film, with Martin Herring and Havana Marking, Maxyne Franklin, Nick Fraser, Kate Townsend, Nick Quested, and Christina Willoughby executive producing.
