Irresistably uplifting

The Guardian

Nominated for 3 Academy Awards including Best Picture & Best Supporting Actress.

Discover the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanised the world.

A pure crowd-pleasing triumph.

British Society for the History of Science

Hidden Figures + Introduction and discussion

Monday 27 February, 17:45

Come and celebrate the women of science on screen with this special show of Hidden Figures presented in association with the British Society for the History of Science.

Why should the film industry improve the visibility of women of science? What does promoting and normalising diversity matter in 2010s? Hidden Figures offers an exciting and sadly infrequent big screen image of women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, medicine, mathematics).

The 17:45 screening on Monday 27 February will be introduced by Dr Amy C. Chambers, a science communication studies scholar at Newcastle University. Amy’s research analyses the relationship between science and film/TV, and the importance of normalising and promoting the idea of women scientists on screen.
