About “Picture a Scientist”:
PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. The film features the biologist Nancy Hopkins, the chemist Raychelle Burks, and the geologist Jane Willenbring, who will lead the 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 stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all., and it also has the perspective of social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists on the topic.
