Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Curt Arnold
March 9 – 31, 2018 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm
SILENT SKY presents the real-life story of Henrietta Leavitt and the women working behind the scenes at the dawn of modern astronomy. Henrietta leaves her family in Wisconsin to join a group of women “computers” at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, where she is not even allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Balancing her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love, she makes a breakthrough discovery that enables astronomers to calculate the distance between Earth and remote galaxies and stars. A celestial romance and true story of discovery.
