Most people remember Hedy Lamarr as the spectacularly beautiful, exotic seductress of 1940s Hollywood films. But she had an additional asset: she was brilliant. During WWII she co-invented a radio communication technique that would eventually play a role in future Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellphone technologies. Presented in this award-winning documentary through recently discovered recordings, Lamarr comes across as a determined feminist who did nothing by halves, whether it was escaping Nazi repression or tasking Howard Hughes’ engineers.

This 2016 documentary film is based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript, Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin’s reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr, as well as his personal observations of American history. It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards and won the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary among many other international awards.
