Film Screening: Hidden Figures - 14 October 2017
HIDDEN FIGURES is the hitherto untold tale that reorients our view of the space race of the 1960s by telling the stories of 3 brilliant African-American mathematicians at NASA (Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson) who serve as the brains behind a stunning achievement that galvanised the world but who were then written out of history.
This is the incredible story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), a visionary trio who crossed all gender and race lines, inspiring generations to dream big. Based on true events this is a truly inspirational tale of women standing up against racism and sexism.
