A great primer on Pussy Riot and their goals, Act and Punishment features in-depth interviews with Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina, and Samutsevich, as well as cultural scholars and art critics, which helps put their pieces into context for those of us not well-versed in Russian history and politics. Act & Punishment screens a week before Pussy Riot will perform two sold out shows on March 28th at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco! 2018.

Pussy Riot quickly draws public attention after a show on the Lobnoye Mesto in the Red Square where they accuse the authorities of sexism, singing the song "Putin Turned Chicken. This performance lands them in a police station amid much mass media attention. Evgeny Mitta’s film, Act and Punishment, is a documentary film that historically and culturally grounds the protest actions of Pussy Riot. The film, which the Russian government has banned, weaves interviews with members of Pussy Riot who tell their own story, Russian art historians, curators, and artists who contextualize the impressive art of Pussy Riot.

Their defeat in court becomes their moral victory, as Pussy Riot are cheered on by thousands of their new-found fans. Original Title Выступление и наказание. Russian activists Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Ekaterina Samutsevich decide to separate from the well-known activist group Voina and create their own group named PUSSY RIOT that would express their ideas of female independence, combining activism, feminism and punk rock music. Their defeat in court becomes their moral victory, as Pussy Riot are cheered on by thousands of their new-found fans.

In March of 2012, three members of the collective were arrested for their involvement in an attempted guerilla performance at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Though Pussy Riot has only recorded a handful of tracks and never released a traditional album, their unfair incarceration briefly made them one of the biggest musical acts in the Western world, and shined a global spotlight on their message. Act & Punishment is a great primer on Pussy Riot and their goals. Although their guerilla performances have the semblance of anarchic chaos, the level of thought and planning that went into each one is remarkable.
