“Pray The Devil Back to Hell” Film To Screen

November 20, 2013

Locals will soon be able to view an array of interesting films provided by the U.S. Department of State at the Bermuda National Library.

The U.S. Consulate General and the adult library on Queen Street are collaborating to showcase documentaries, docudramas, films, and educational videos on a variety of topics of interest to both Americans and the Bermudian public.

The State Department’s Bureau of International Information Programs sources the films from the private sector [PBS, HBO, Discovery, The History Channel, etc.] and independent producers.


The Consulate and the Library have launched a bimonthly, thematic “Consulate Night at the Library,” starting on Monday, November 25 at 6.00pm, which is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

The inaugural film will be “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” which 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.

This powerful documentary has been screened at the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, the U.S. Department of State, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at The Hague, and the International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution at Columbia University. Additional information about the film is available at its official website.

Following the screening, Consulate Officer Eleesha Lewis will lead a discussion.

U.S. Consul General Bob Settje thanks Head Librarian Joanne Brangman for partnering with the Consulate to host these bimonthly gatherings. Because of limited space, only 50 guests can be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
