New Pussy Riot Song “I Can’t Breathe” Features Eric Garner’s Mourning Family

Filmed at the sight of Eric Garner’s murder in Staten Island, NY, the video captures a community in mourning. Members of Eric Garner’s family appear throughout. They gather to build a memorial and stage a ‘die-in’ at the sight where Garner took his last breath. They hold candles and look back at us, continuing to bear witness to the tragedy of Eric Garner’s last words.

I Can’t Breathe was written and recorded in NYC as mass protests against police brutality erupt throughout the city. The video was made at the same time. Helicopters floated in the sky. Pulsating police lights were never far. It was a cold and militarized winter, a time of grief and outrage.

Directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin and produced by Third Party Films in Brooklyn, NY.

MUSIC: Pussy Riot feat. R. Hell, N. Zinner, A. Wyatt, Jack Wood, Scofferlane
