Magical. Inspirational. True.

A real hidden figure in America’s scientific world, Henrietta Leavitt worked alongside other female “computers” in the early 20th century at Harvard Observatory.

Astonishing discoveries unfold as Henrietta, Margaret and Annie read the stars and find their way in a society designed to keep a woman’s hands off the Great Refractor. As Henrietta attempts to measure the light and distance of the stars, she is forced to also measure and balance her dedication to science with the obligations of family and the possibility of love. In a beautiful blend of science, religion, love and passion we watch a pioneer find her voice in a man’s world.  Told with a captivating poetic and witty tone, “Silent Sky” will transport you to the stars and back and leave you with the gift of our poignant American history.
