Summary Natasha Fissiak, a Russian American director/filmmaker, on a visit to Moscow in July 2012, heard about members of a punk rock, feminist group called Pussy Riot who were on trial, then convicted of hoolganism and received a harsh two-year prison sentence. She also saw people were afraid. They did not want to discuss openly the case of Pussy Riot. Fissiak became aware of an alarming change in the country she knew during the early 1990s before she emigrated to the U.S. Democratic reform had all but disappeared. Disturbed by what she saw, Fissiak and her partner in Golden World Films, LLC, Carole Keeney Harrington, assembled a filmmaking team and flew back to Moscow. It has now been three years since Pussy Riot burst upon the world stage. The NEW movie resulting from the 2012 shoot by GWF includes violent demonstrations, interviews with dissidents, lawyers, artists, and other women imprisoned on trumped up charges. It is now is ready for release. PUSSY RIOT - THE MOVEMENT covers the three-year journey of Nadia Tolokonnikova, Masha Alyokhina and Katia Samutsevich, from their early lives and the experiences that shaped them through 2014. Narrated by Daryl Hannah, the documentary begins with the arrest of the women on a dark street in Moscow and continues through the two-year imprisonment of Nadia and Masha, their "early" release and continued activism at the Sochi Olympics and throughout Russia and the world.
