  • Hidden Figures (2016) Slider Image

USA | 127 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Theodore Melfi

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. (Rotten Tomatoes)

"'Hidden Figures' is empowerment cinema at its most populist, and one only wishes that the film had existed at the time it depicts." - Peter Debruge (Variety)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
