Because wonder will always get us there…

It is 1900, and Henrietta Leavitt is an astronomer ahead of her time. Working at Harvard University as a human computer mapping the stars without scientific credit, Henrietta has ambitions to make discoveries of her own. But when she is told the use of Harvard’s ‘Great Refractor’ telescope is only for the men of the department, her ambitions only double Pushing aside personal relationships for the sake of discovery, Henrietta makes profound contributions to science at great personal sacrifice. Silent Sky is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars and the humanity that makes life under them beautiful and timeless.

Two performances of Silent Sky will be ASL (American Sign Language) interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing:
