If you want to go to the cinema during the next weeks, Hidden Figures is an excellent choice. Based on the homonym book written by Margot Lee Shetterly, this film tells the story of three Afro-American women who played key roles in the NASA during the 70's. However, discrimination was at hand (not only because of their origin, but also because they were women). During the film, we are aware of the difficult and injust situations Afro-American people had to endure, that is, all the consequences that segregation brought about. It is through work, determination and intelligence that these three figures gained the respect they deserved and they started to break unacceptable social barriers.
The great thing about this film is that it makes us think and reflect on the consequences of racism and narrow-minded consciousness. No matter who we are or where we come from, because at the end we are capable of doing something great.
