I am so proud to host this second premiere of films by emerging women filmmakers who completed the CHA/DePaul Filmmaking Program. On Sunday, April 28th, you are invited to join us in Chicago at the 300-seat Claudia Cassidy Theatre, at the Chicago Cultural Center, on the 2nd Floor North, 78 East Washington Street.
