Now Showing at Your Public Library

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 10:30 AM

Generally, free screenings of films can be a "you get what you pay for" situation, but the Now Showing at Your Library series seems to always bring in interesting films that might not be seen otherwise, including this month's selection:

September marks the return of the new season of Now Showing at your Library free film series. The September film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, is directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker, Gini Reticker. The film chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.

“Inspiring, uplifting…a call to arms for all of us…” —Desmond Tutu, Winner, 1984 Nobel Peace Prize
