Pray the Devil Back to Hell

I have heard about the women of Liberia and their role in the end of the civil war in 2003. One of my friends who graduated recently from PSU’s graduate conflict resolution program told me about their bravery and faith in demanding peace in their country. But that’s where my knowledge ends, so I was excited to find out there is a screening in Portland of “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” a documentary completed a few years ago. The film has been screened around the world to all sorts of groups NGO workers, downtrodden women, politicians and film lovers. It won Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the screening or just wait for it on Netflix, but for those interested in attending it is from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, May 21, at PCC Sylvania ST 101.
