Pray the Devil back to Hell Screening

Posted by Coman Communications on February 2, 2012

To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March, TWEP is hosting a screening of the film Pray the Devil back to Hell.

Pray 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 event will take place at Sutton Civic Offices, St Nicholas Way, Sutton at 7pm on 8 March and is presented with the support of the Sutton Equalities and Diversity Forum.

Tickets £5 each can be obtained from TWEP’s office.
