A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia—ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim—who came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest to end their country’s bloody civil war. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the conflict. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about an agreement during a stalled peace talks. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL is compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.The special screening of PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL is part of Film Streams’ Community Development Program, which facilitates partnerships with other nonprofits and community groups on film-related events that speak to their missions and programming.
