Global Peace Film Festival

We are joining with the Global Peace Film Festival at the Avalon Island Theater (formerly DMAC) to see Pray the Devil Back to Hell, an award-winning documentary about the power of collective action for the common good. After the movie we will go downstairs for vegan and vegetarian food provided especially for us at Maxine's Diner. Tickets for the film are $8.00 (does not include food) and can be purchased online or at the venue. This is a very special event that you won't want to miss!

Pray the Devil Back to Hell
The extraordinary story of a small band of Liberian women, Christian and Muslims united, who formed a thin but unshakable white line between the opposing forces, and successfully demanded an end to the fighting, armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions. Together they took on the violent warlords and corrupt Charles Taylor regime, and won a long-awaited peace for their shattered country in 2003. This film intersperses contemporary interviews, archival images, and scenes of present-day Liberia to recount the experiences and memories of the women who were instrumental in bringing lasting peace to their country.
