Hidden Figures 2

A drama based on real events about 3 women who played key roles at NASA. Behind the scenes, a number of African-American women are responsible for the calculations of rocket trajectories and have to battle against racism and sexism to secure a place in history. One is a maths prodigy, the second is the calculations supervisor, whilst another encounters an uphill struggle to train as NASA’s first black female engineer. The film is set in 1961 and shows NASA’s determination to put John Glenn into orbit around the Earth in February 1962. Hidden Figures was nominated for Best Film at the Oscars and it had the biggest box-office receipts of any Oscar nominations in 2017.
