Film Screening: Pray the Devil Back to Hell

International Alert is screening Pray the Devil Back to Hell next week. I hear it’s well worth catching so I thought I’d share.

It’s an inspiring story about brave Liberian women, both Christian and Muslim, who helped restore peace in their country torn apart by a brutal civil war through non-violent protests. Awarded Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, it is said to be an eye-opener to the power of ordinary people and grassroots activism. 

The evening will close with a Q&A session chaired by Oona King, with Etweda “sugars” Cooper and Asatu Bah Kenneth, two protagonists in the film.

Date: Wednesday, 2 December, 2009
Time: 6-9pm
Place:  Kings Place – 90 York Way, London N1 9AG
