Film about mathematicians

On 4 October 2017 the UoL Eleanor Glanville Center in conjunction with School of Mathematics and Physics organized a screening of “Hidden Figures“, a highly acclaimed film about black female mathematicians who worked at NASA on space programmes. The film is loosely based on true events and real protagonists.
