Hidden Figures, Theodore Melfi

The untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – brilliant African-American women working at NASA and serving as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history – the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

In relation to concepts from Kapwani Kiwanga’s exhibition Remediation, this screening will open with the short film Water You Waiting For, a collaborative animated short film from the University of Saskatchewan. The animation translates 16 of the most pressing water security issues facing Canada, and follows a water drop as it takes us on a journey across Canada to highlight the issues that are bringing the delicate balance of water sustainability to the tipping point, but with a resounding chorus of hope.
