Pray the Devil Back to Hell tells the remarkable but little-known story of a small band of unarmed women who risked their lives to bring change to Liberia. Director Gini Reticker reconstructing the moment through interviews, archival footage and striking images of contemporary Liberia. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women confronted cruelty and corruption, taking on Charles Taylor and the warlords to bring peace to their country after decades of war. Their demonstrations brought about the exile of Charles Taylor and the election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa's first female head of state - and marked the vanguard of a new wave of people taking control of their political destiny around the world. We recently met up with Reticker, along with producer Abigail E. Disney and Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee for an intimate look at the process of bringing this uplifting story to the big screen.
