Hidden Figures

Meet the women you don’t know, behind the mission you do.
  • I’ll fit right in ...

Set during the Apollo years, as the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the true life stories of three of these women, with a bit of artistic licence regarding accurate history, we follow these women as they quickly rose through the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. The film has won numerous awards including Oscar noms, and did well at the box office in the USA.
