Abstract: 

Maryam Mirzakhani was an amazing mathematician and the first woman to win the Fields Medal (comparable to the Nobel prize of mathematics). She was also a remarkable human being whose life was sadly cut short. This movie describes her life and her mathematics, including her journey growing up as a girl in Iran interested in mathematics. It is a very inspiring and interesting film. Our department purchased an institutional copy of the film, so are able to show it publicly at OSU. We will broadcast the movie over zoom. We hope to see you there!
