ABOUT THE FILM: Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie (40 mins)

Two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Skłodowska Curie is best known for pioneering the field of radioactivity, including her discovery of the elements polonium and radium, but few understand the obstacles she faced just to get into the laboratory. Masterfully portrayed by acclaimed living history scholar & playwright Susan Marie Frontczak, Humanity Needs Dreamers explores the tenacity of the human spirit and the enduring allure of scientific discovery. http://www.humanityneedsdreamers.org
