The Edge of All We Know
Peter L. Galison | Documentary | US | 2020 | 99 min
Wednesday 10 April 2019 will go down in history as the day the first photo of a black hole was presented to the world. The Event Horizon Telescope project had achieved what was thought to be impossible. Years of dedication by a network of global scientists that included Stephen Hawking had paid off and the results were incredible. The Edge of All We Know is a tribute to the scientists who pushed past the limits of what we see and what we know to achieve the impossible.
Picture a Scientist
Ian Cheney & Sharon Shattuck | Documentary | US | 2020 | 97 min
Picture a scientist. What do you see? Chances are it’s not a woman. An important reason for this is that women aren’t always given the same opportunities or the same respect in science as their male colleagues. Picture a Scientist follows three female researchers as they face sexism, intimidation, and institutional discrimination in the academic field. Against the current and with a deep love for their profession, these women are committed to revolutionising the culture of science.
