"must see" movie

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Do you love a good documentary movie? After hearing an interview on NPR, I think "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" is a must-see movie. It is about women who were sick of war and decided to do something about it. It's about mothers who just wanted a better life for their children. Oh, just to hear them speak... experience it for yourself.

Info from the movie website:

Tribeca Film Festivals' Best Documentary Award-Winning 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. This incredible, uplifting story has also earned awards at Silverdocs (Witness Award), Jackson Hole Film Festival (Audience Choice: Documentary), Traverse City Film Festival (Special Jury Prize: Non-fiction Filmmaking), and the Heartland Film Festival (Best Documentary).

Desmond Tutu, Winner 1984 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, says that "Pray the Devil Back to Hell"...eloquently captures the power each of us innately has within our souls to make this world a far better, safer, more peaceful place"
