Hidden Figures - Staff Pick

Hidden Figures


Director: Theodore Melfi

"John Glenn, Alan B. Shepard, Neil Armstrong - most people would be able to tell you that these white men are famous for being amongst the first Americans to leave Earth’s atmosphere. But what about Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson - the black women that made it possible in the first place? Hidden Figures is without a doubt one of the most important films you’ll watch this year, not just for teaching us about the women behind one of mankind’s greatest achievements, but also for opening our eyes to the racism and adversity that tried to hold them back - something which is still very much alive today."
