Under the Radar

In collaboration with Cinemateket, we have created a film series, which is taking place right now! 

Under the Radar - Dismissed by Science is a series of films about women in science who have "flown under the radar". Through showing these films, we aim to highlight some amazing stories of female scientists and inventors, and at the same time put focus on the ongoing biases and obstacles which they have had to overcome. 

For some of the film showings we have special events:

Mon. 23/8 at 18:30: Bombshell - the Hedy Lamarr Story (documentary about Hedy Lamarr, movie star and inventor). Followed by panel discussion on about female innovators in the tech world. Panelists: Marianne Andersen, founder of the NGO High5Girls, Monika Luniewska and Frederikke Dahl, both entrepreneurs and role models in High5Girls. 

Wed. 1/9 at 19:30: Radioactive (biopic about Marie Curie). Followed by panel discussion about Marie Curie and the importance of her discoveries. Panelists: Professor Anja C. Andersen and astrophysicist/author/podcaster Tina Ibsen. 

Mon. 13/9 at 18:30: Picture a Scientist (documentary about three female professors and the biases and obstacles they have encountered). Followed by panel discussion about the topics of the film and the importance of the continued work to overcome these issues. Panelists: Desiree Della Monica Ferreira, Senior Scientist at DTU Space, Liselotte Jauffred, Associate Professor at NBI and Rajika Kuruwita, Postdoc at NBI. The panel discussion will be followed by a reception. 

Wed. 29/9 at 19:30: Woman in Motion (documentary about Nichelle Nichols - who plays Lt. Uhura on Star Trek - and her work to help recruit more women and minorities to NASA in the 1970ies). Followed by a panel discussion about the importance of representation. Panelists: to be announced.
