Film club to see 'Hidden Figures'

OCEANSIDE – Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar this year, "Hidden Figures" will be shown by the North County Film Club on Sunday, June 4. In the 1960s, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians. They served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history.

This film is based on the true life stories of three women, known as "human computers." The women rose through the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds, tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.

The three women, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson desired to dream big, and through their efforts they are firmly cemented in U.S. history as true American heroes. The film stars Taraji Hensen, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Kevin Costner.

It will be shown at 3 p.m. at the Digiplex Theater, Oceanside, Mission at College. For further information, call (760) 500-1927.
