The documentary “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is playing on Nov. 1 in the Boyd Science Center as part of the NH Fulbright alumni film series and International Education Week. The film depicts a peace movement led by Christian and Muslim women in Liberia.

The event includes refreshments, the opportunity to meet Fulbright alumni, and a question and answer session with Z.J. Jallah, a Liberian advocate for IT in education.

Fulbright is a prestigious program for graduates and graduate students. It gives people the opportunity to research, study, or teach in one of over 140 countries. Fulbright alumni Thomas Janis, Laura Tilghman and George Matthews all helped organize the event, and they will be there to talk with the attendees.

Thomas Janis said that his experience with Fulbright was life changing. “The world’s a big place, and there’s so much to learn from it,” said Janis. “Even the bad experiences are character-shaping.”

The evening’s film “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” won best documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. It follows a movement called Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, which worked to end the Second Liberian Civil War. The movement also helped elect their country’s first female head of state, which Laura Tilghman connected to the U.S.’s current political climate, and the possibility of a woman president.

Attendees can get a certificate of attendance by going to this event, which can be included on a resume.

“Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is playing on Nov. 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Boyd 144. This is a free event.
