Pray the Devil Back to Hell Screening

April 26, 2009, 3:00-5:00 pm

Greater Boston Vineyard, Cambridge Site Sanctuary

Cambridge Open Studios logoPray the Devil Back to Hell is the gripping account of a group of brave and visionary women who demanded peace for Liberia, a nation torn to shreds by a decades old civil war. The women's historic, yet unsung achievement finds voice in a narrative that intersperses contemporary interviews, archival images, and scenes of present-day Liberia together to recount the experiences and memories of the women who were instrumental in bringing lasting peace to their country. The screening is a part of the Lydia Fair / Cambridge Open Studios and is presented by Rebuild Africa. A collection of donations to support the work of Rebuild Africa will be made at the movie.
