'Pray the Devil Back to Hell' & 'War Redefined' [Women, War & Peace]
PBS and the Maysles Cinema Present:
Women, War and Peace
Series created by Abigail Disney, Pamela Hogan and Gini Reticker

'Pray the Devil Back to Hell'
(Abigail Disney & Gini Reticker, 2008, 52 min.)
Pray the Devil Back to Hell 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. Thousands of women  ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim  came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country's civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about a agreement during the stalled peace talks. 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.

'War Redefined'
(Peter Bull, 2011, 60 min.)
War Redefined challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain through incisive interviews with leading thinkers, Secretaries of State and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making. Their experiences reveal how the post-Cold War proliferation of small arms has changed the landscape of war, with women becoming primary targets and suffering unprecedented casualty rates. Simultaneously, they describe how women are emerging as necessary partners in brokering lasting peace and as leaders in forging new international laws governing conflict. Narrated by Geena Davis.


ABOUT WOMEN, WAR AND PEACE:
'Women, War & Peace' challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain. With depth and complexity, this bold PBS 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 dialogue about conflict and security, and reframing our understanding of modern warfare. Series created by Abigail Disney, Pamela Hogan and Gini Reticker. Three Films from this series will play at the Maysles Cinema on November 16th and 17th - "Play the Devil Back to Hell" and "War Redefined" on the 16th and "The War We are Living" and "War Redefined" on the 17th.
