About the Film
Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Jonson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial line and inspired generations. Based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly. Post-film talk and Q&A by Dr. Helen Hu, Westminster College Computer Science professor.
Presented in partnership with the Park City Library as part of the STEM education film series and the Books 2 Movies program.
