A period drama about feminism, scientific advancement and the fight to cement one's legacy in the face of adversity, Silent Sky is set in the early 1900s and follows Henrietta Leavitt, an aspiring scientist who joins the Harvard Observatory's all-female "human computer" team. The women are kept behind the scenes and are told to keep their ideas and theories to themselves. As Henrietta navigates these impossible waters, she tries to keep her personal life and family obligations in focus. Silent Sky, presented by Chicago's Three Crows, examines a woman's place in professional society during a time of both historic discovery and endless oppression, when a woman's ideas were dismissed until a man could claim credit for them.
