In honor of International Peace Day, the Peace Resource Center and Ocean Beach Green Center are proud to present an introduction to the film series of Women, War & Peace. This 2011 KPBS series challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain. With depth and complexity, the series spotlights the stories of women in conflict zones from Bosnia to Afghanistan and Colombia to Liberia, placing women at the center of an urgent dialog about conflict and security, and re-framing our understanding of modern warfare.
Tonight, we will be showing Pray the Devil Back to Hell, which tells the powerful and uplifting story of the brave and visionary Liberian women who demanded peace for Liberia, a nation torn to shreds by a decades-old civil war. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the astonishing story of the Liberian women who took on the warlords and regime of dictator Charles Taylor in the midst of a brutal civil war, and won a once unimaginable peace for their shattered country in 2003.
This is an outdoor social gathering with refreshments and networking for peace with outdoor film, following. You might want to bring a light jacket.
