Hidden Figures traces the inspiring true story of the black women scientists behind the mission to put the first American into space. Dorothy, repeatedly denied promotion, is supervisor to a group of human computers, women charged with doing calculations in this pre-digital age. Her friends Katherine and Mary are, respectively, a maths prodigy and an aspiring engineer. All three women find themselves doubly hindered by racism and sexism in a film that unveils the true perniciousness of white supremacy, its normalcy.

USA 2016 – directed by Theodore Melfi – with Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell, Kevin Costner – 127 min
