We are pleased to offer a private screening for Columbia alumni, on the Academy Award nominated 'Hidden Figures'. The screening will be at TGV 1 Utama. You must RSVP by 8 February. Afterwards, we will hold a mini movie review and panel with Malaysian women in STEM (science and technology, engineering and medicine) professions. The movie is set in the 1960s, as the U.S. seeks to surpass the USSR in the space race. Three mathematically gifted women must cope with prejudice while performing vital tasks at NASA's segregated Virginia facilities. These human computers were crucial in putting Americans into space, and based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly.
