Oakwood Cinema presents the uplifting true story of a group of African American woman working on the early stages of the NASA space programme.
With strong messages about race and gender equality during the early stages of the NASA space programme, the film captures the spirit of the age without ever feeling overly polemic or heavy handed.
We are very excited to announce that Hidden Figures will be introduced by our very special guest for the night, Monica Grady, Professor of Planetary and Space Science .
Having earlier in her career curated one of the worlds finest meteorite collections at the Natural History Museum, and given the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Monica was a key member of the team responsible for the first-ever spacecraft to land on a comet. Her fantastic, joyful reaction to the successful landing of the Philae probe was seen around the world when the video went viral on social media.
Doors open 7pm, talk and screening at 8pm.
