Film Director JulieHera DeStefano at E-Magnify this Weekend

JulieHera DeStefano, producer and director of the documentary film Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home, will join us this Saturday at Women Veterans Marching Forward: Call to Entrepreneurship. There will be a showing of the film's trailer.

Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home recounts the unprecedented story of women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Filmmaker JulieHera DeStefano launched this project to explore the psychological and social dynamics of their service, to follow their reintegration into civilian life, and to preserve their stories.

Journey to Normal turns the film over to the true storytellers, the women themselves. Their collective narrative reflects these changes in our society and helps to bridge the perceived gap between military and civilian culture.

The film is slated for release in September 2014.

Join us this weekend (November 2) to see the trailer, hear DeStefano speak, and learn about how military service prepares women for small business ownership. Registration for this half-day event (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) is just $20, and includes lunch. Men and women, regardless of military experience, are welcome.
