"Fascinating and frightening examination of bias" - WGBH
Sweeping in scope yet intimately compelling

Picture a Scientist is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming 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.
