Woman in Motion - (Festival Opening Night Film)
To most of the known universe, Nichelle Nichols is Lt. Uhura, the communications officer for the Starship Enterprise. On Star Trek she broke barriers as one of the first African Americans to star on TV. Offscreen, she was also a civil rights advocate working with Martin Luther King Jr. and later challenging NASA by asking them, "Where are my people?" and embarking on a national blitz to recruit 8,000 of the nation’s best and brightest, including the trailblazing astronauts who became the first African American, Asian and Latino men and women to fly in space. Woman in Motion is Hidden Figures in documentary form, telling the story of a woman who has dedicated her entire life to boldly going where no man or woman has gone before.
