Join us for a virtual screening of Picture A Scientist, a feature-length documentary film and official selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.

Synopsis

Picture A Scientist is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field sites, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open for all.

A film by Sharon Shattuck and Ian Cheney
