Science often exists in the public mind as a tidy series of facts; anonymous and absolute things we know. But the history of science is, like so much else, a human history. The process of discovery isn't a timeline of data points, but a search for meaning undertaken by people looking for answers. But history tends to get simplified; a map becomes a single road leading from point to point. It's not surprising that some scientists who contributed invaluably to the field have been kept out of the dominant narrative because they were women, and they were considered anomalies of their time.
The Cameo Cinema welcomes you to SCIENCE ON SCREEN®'s creative pairings of classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine.
