In case you missed our previous screening, please join us on the UN's International Day of Peace for a special presentation of Pray the Devil Back to Hell at the E Street Theater next week on August 24th at 7 pm. Human Rights USA is co-sponsoring the event with the Woolly Mammoth Theater, InterAction, Peace x Peace, and the Washington DC Film Society. Human Rights USA International Justice Project Director, Piper Hendricks, will be participating in a panel discussion immediately following the film screening.
This special film screening is being put on in collaboration with the Woolly Mammoth Theater, who are set to launch their new critically acclaimed play, Eclipsed, later this month. The Woolly Mammoth's website offers a brief description of the play:
"The captive wives of a Liberian rebel officer form a hardscrabble sisterhood, their lives set on a nightmarish detour by civil war. With the arrival of a new girl who can read – and the return of an old one who can kill – their possibilities are quickly transformed. Drawing on reserves of wit and compassion, these defiant survivors ask: when the fog of battle lifts, could a different destiny emerge?"
The festivities begin at 7 pm! We look forward to seeing you there.
