Last MOVING IMAGE film before the summer break
HIDDEN FIGURES [PG] 127 mins USA 2017
Tuesday 11 July 7.30pm William Loveless Hall
The story of a team of African-American women mathematicians, unsung heroes, who played a pivotal role during the US-Soviet space race. Three black women were the brains behind John Glenn’s successful launch into orbit. Their achievement is even greater in the context the racial and gender prejudice rife in 1962, but it remained little known until the book on which the film is based was published in 2016. The film is moving, inspirational and uplifting.
