"The Red Turtle" (Trailer 1) from Studio Ghibli, animated movie. Opens in Los Angeles today!

(Nuart) This haunting and magical tale, told wordlessly but eloquently, is a simple fable of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island, and his efforts to survive, wrestling with nature. The island is populated by birds and crabs, and is one day visited by a large sea turtle that seems to have mysterious intentions. Filled with convincing details of the natural world and told with imagination and heart, The Red Turtle is a spectacularly beautiful film. Its gorgeous hand-drawn animation equals the best of any previous animation classic. Directed and co-written by Michael Dudok de Wit, Academy Award winner for the animated short “Father and Daughter,” The Red Turtle was created by Europeans and is presented by the Japanese Studio Ghibli, makers of Spirited Away and The Wind Rises. Acclaimed at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize, the film is a unique achievement.

(20th Century Fox) Hidden Figures is based on an incredible true story not previously told. The hit movie stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, and it's in theaters now.

Black U.S. great get little credit.
This is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe).

These brilliant African-American women work as human "computers" doing math at NASA, serving as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.

American segregation, prejudice, racism
This stunning achievement restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio cross all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

It's true, maybe the moon landing shown on TV was a big fraud, an obvious hoax, but that is not to say we have never really gone. If even the Nazis had been there, we must have gone, and to do it we needed human "computers." What astronauts found and the true proximity of our Moon, these are different issues to be looked into.
