WOMEN TOGETHER AS ONE - PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL
Gilda Sheppard's documentary film "Women Together as One" was the first ever short film selected for showing by Fest Afrique 360 at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival in France. "Women Together as One" focuses on work Sheppard did with Liberian women refugees who live at the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana, West Africa. She worked with the women  to organize a womens collective and design classes for economic sustainability (computer literacy, adult literacy, cosmetology, catering, sewing and tie and dye workshops) and school scholarships for their children.

PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL - The civil and clan wars that ravaged Liberia from 1989-2003 accounted for over 250,000 deaths, one million displaced persons, and a malignancy of unspeakable atrocities often committed by child-soldiers, that left the country in a dire state of hopelessness. Out of this despair rose a group of women; mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, led by Leymah Gbowee, a mother who dared to dream that the  wars could end. This film tells their extraordinary story. Through simple testimonials and footage from the conflicts, it weaves a story of hope that stands as a testament to the power of women and peace
