Her Story: Canadian Women Scientists
Her Story: Canadian Women Scientists is a film series dedicated to sharing the stories of Canadian women scientists. Facilitated by Curiosity Collider, local filmmakers and Canadian women scientists collaborate to create 5-6 minute videos; for each film in the series, a scientist tells her own story, interwoven with the story of an inspiring Canadian women scientist who came before her in her field of study. Each short film features a mixture of live action, animation, and narration.
This film series is curated by Larissa Blokhuis and produced by Curiosity Collider Art-Science Foundation.
