“Picture a Scientist” is a feature-length documentary that leads viewers on a journey into the personal experiences of a group of women scientists. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, the film chronicles the work of scientific luminaries—including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists—who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
