Summary *Coarse Language*It's back for a 4th Series! Sunday Best, screening Sunday nights on ABC2, is the home of an outstanding collection of game-changing and thought-provoking feature length documentaries. We've done the work to bring you the best must-see intelligent docos that are just too good to miss.In February 2012 the feminist art collective Pussy Riot performed a 40 second 'punk prayer' inside Russia's main cathedral. This performance led to their arrest on charges of religious hatred and culminated in a trial that has reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society forever. With unparalleled access and exclusive footage, this film tells the incredible story of three young women behind their now famous colourful balaclavas: Nadia, Masha and Katia.Following the bizarre and intricate twists of the trial, we observe three young women who fight back against a justice system that seems impervious to logic. From their family and friends we learn what transformed these women from political activists to modern day icons.As Nadia, Masha and Katia defend their convictions from a cage inside the courtroom, those Pussy Riot members still at liberty plan new guerrilla performances and cultivate a protest movement across the globe.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Directed and Produced by Mike Lerner & Maxim Pozdorovkin.
