Short Film Block: Hidden Figures / 85 min.
About this Event
Katherine Johnson, the real life 'Hidden Figure'/NASA employee that was pivotal in getting the USA into space, didn't always get the recognition that she deserved. In this block we make space for immigration hotline volunteers, a late night TV auteur, a micro bakery owner, and a transgender woman that heads a religous movement. They all deserved their own films, and if you see them, you'll be better for it.
