Reticker. It exposes a different story angle for the largely forgotten recent events
of the women of Liberia uniting to bring the end to their nation's civil war.
This film is amazing in the way it captivates your attention from the
earliest frames. It doesn't shy away from showing footage of the violent
events that took place during the Liberian civil war. But the main story
of the film is that of Leymah Gbowee and the other women uniting, despite
their religious differences, to force action on the stalled peace talks in
their country. Using entirely nonviolent methods, not only are the peace
talks successful, but Charles Taylor, the president of Liberia, is forced
into exile leading to the first election of a female head of state in
The women of this film are truly an inspiration and no one can fail to be
moved by the message of hope that comes through clearly in this film.
These are heroes that deserve to be remembered and with Pray the Devil we
are able to do that, gaining both a knowledge of the history we are

The film also offers a great soundtrack & inspirational song- "Djoyigbe" by Angelique Kidjo & Blake Leyh.
I highly recommend this soul-touching film. Once you watch it, you'll want to share it with your friends because- "PEACE IS LOUD"!
Pray the Devil Back to Hell is sure to inspire anyone who feels they do not have the power to make a change in the world. The women of Liberia united across religious and cultural boundaries in the face of a devastating civil war in order to bring peace to their countries. With these women as examples, no one ever needs to feel they aren't important enough to make a difference. This film has the power to touch hearts and move people to action.
Pray the Devil has also spawned the "Peace is Loud" campaign, which everyone should check out after watching the film [...]. It's a great way to move from inspiration to action.
The story as seen through amateur video and film is compelling and uplifting.
To see how their work continues is even more impressive. Kudos to Abigail Disney and Gina Reticker for unearthing and making this gem.
I recommend this movie wholeheartedly to anyone ready for a thoughtful and uplifting true story.
