Pray the Devil Back to Hell

We had a successful showing of "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" at Brookhaven Lab on August 3.

As we did for the March screening of the film, as part of Women's History Month events at the Riverhead campus of Suffolk County Community College (SCCC), we introduced SCCC's Office of Multicultual Affairs, the lab's Brookhaven Women in Science, and Peconic Bay Zonta, the local chapter of Zonta International. All three organizations worked together to obtain the rights for public showings of the documentary and are cosponsors for every screening.

At Brookhaven Lab, the audience numbered over 50 and included laboratory staff, summer interns, and community members. Afterwards, a small group stayed to discuss the events in Liberia and the current situation there, with presidential elections scheduled for this coming October.

Our next scheduled showing of the documentary is on September 14, at 6 p.m. in the Greenport public library.
