Watch a Trailer for HBO's Pussy Riot Doc

It’s been a headline-making month for Russia’s Pussy Riot, but there’s now even more news to disturb the peace.

Following the hunger strike and hospitalization of Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina, comes news of a book deal for a feminist text titled Let’s Start a Pussy Riot and the HBO premiere of a documentary called Pussy Riot—A Punk Prayer.

The Line of Best Fit reported Let’s Start a Pussy Riot offers “an exploration of the concept of Future Feminism, asking how we can move forward and unite different voices and generations to create an inspiring dialogue.” The book includes contributions from Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons) and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and will launch at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival on June 14.

A promo trailer for the documentary captures the girls high-kicking and setting things alight in multicolored balaclavas. These antics were part of the protest video for “Punk Prayer: Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!”—one of the acts that landed them in jail. The film will follow the girls’ trial and arrest following these protest efforts in their mother nation Russia.
