MOVIE NIGHT featuring “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” followed by Q&A with Director, Gini Reticker
This year’s benefit is a movie night showing “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” which includes a Q&A afterwards with the director, Gini Reticker. This documentary film tells the remarkable true story of the Liberian women who came together to pray, protest, and bring about a peaceful end to the bloody civil war in their country. Critically acclaimed, “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” won the Alliance of Women Film Journalists’ EDA Female Focus Award (2008); the Cinema for Peace Awards’ Cinema for Peace Award for Justice (2009); and the Tribeca Film Festival’s Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature (2008.)
Net proceeds of our movie night will go to support the work of Audre Lorde Project. The Audre Lorde Project is a Brooklyn, New York-based organization for LGBT people of color. The organization concentrates on community organizing and radical nonviolent activism around progressive issues within New York City, especially relating to LGBT communities, AIDS and HIV activism, pro-immigrant activism, prison reform and organizing among youth of color.
