Join us for a special screening of the new documentary film “Space, Hope & Charity,” which shares the story of a young woman from rural Oregon whose dream of becoming a NASA astrophysicist is nearly derailed when she suffers a devastating tragedy. The film, directed and produced by Bend filmmaker Sandy Cummings, celebrates students engaging in STEM fields and the resilience one can achieve by exploring far-off galaxies and finding human connection on Earth.

In addition, Sandy Cummings, film subject and astrophysicist Charity Woodrum, and director of the University of Oregon’s Pine Mountain Observatory Scott Fisher, Ph.D., will participate in a panel discussion.
