WWII Home Front National Historical Park
(Richmond, CA) – A new documentary film called “The War At Home” will debut at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park on Saturday, March 2nd and Sunday, March 3rd, 2013.  The 25-minute film will screen hourly at the park’s Visitor Education Center, starting at 11 AM.  The last screening will begin at 4 PM. 
“The War At Home,” produced in collaboration between the National Park Service and Signature Communications, uses oral histories, archival materials and personal diaries to illustrate the diversity and complexity of the WWII home front experience, from the perspective of a number of real people who lived in different cities across the United States.
After the weekend-long debut, visitors will be able to see “The War At Home” throughout the day on a regular basis 7 days a week at the Visitor Education Center.  Another 16-minute documentary film, “Home Front Heroes,” which outlines the history of defense manufacturing in Richmond, CA during WWII, is also screened regularly, alternating with “The War At Home.” 
The Rosie the Riveter Visitor Education Center is open 7 days a week between 10 AM and 5 PM, and is located at 1414 Harbour Way South, suite 3000, Richmond, CA 94804.  For more information and directions to the Visitor Education Center, please call 510-232-3108 or go to http://www.nps.gov/rori/planyourvisit/directions.htm.  There is no charge for the films or for admission to the Visitor Education Center.
