Silent Sky

Silent Sky

Presented by Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Rogers Center for the Arts

As an employee at the Harvard Observatory in the 1900s, Henrietta Leavitt isn’t allowed to touch a telescope, ore even express an original idea. Instead, she’s placed with a group of women–“computers”– who are tasked with charting stars for a renowned astronomer. As she tries to measure the light and distance of stars in her free time, Henrietta faces the challenge of balancing her dedication to science with family obligations and love. Based on a the true story of women who changed how we understand the heavens, Silent Sky, is a moving tribute to overcoming preconceptions and imposed limitations. Directed by Dr. Kathleen Sills.
