Summary
From activist, Pussy Riot member and freedom fighter Maria Alyokhina, a raw, hallucinatory, passionate account of her arrest, trial and imprisonment in a penal colony in the Urals for standing up for what she believed in
Summary
In February 2012, Maria Alyokhina and other members of the radical collective Pussy Riot took on the Orthodox church and its support for Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian regime. For this, they were charged with “organized hooliganism” and were tried while confined in a cage and guarded by Rottweilers. The trial and Alyokhina’s subsequent imprisonment became an international cause; her two-year sentence launched a bitter struggle against the Russian prison system and an iron-willed refusal to be deprived of her humanity
