Event description

Description

WEST (Women in Engineering, Science and Technology) are delighted to be screening the Hidden Figures – the inspiring story of three African-American women working at NASA in 1962. They were the brains behind the historic launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit – crossing gender, race and professional lines in the process.

“Fun, fast-talking and fabulously coiffed” (The Guardian) and based on an untold true story, this year’s film is going to be a blast!

- Oscar nominated for Best Picture
- 92% on Rotten Tomatoes

“Rocket science with plenty of uplift” The Guardian

“an uplifting plea for equality…calibrated for maximum effect” Empire Magazine
