In the Footsteps of Marie Curie
An entertaining documentary about the life and achievements of one of the greatest scientists in history
Young, beautiful, and born in an occupied country that for a time disappeared from the European map, Marie Curie cherished the innovative filed of science. Reserved yet ambitious, she rushed into the world of science hitherto the domain of men. How do scientists see her today? What made her unique? How has women’s role in the academic world of science changed?
“For a scientist to be in his laboratory it is not a job, but more like a child to be part of his fairytale,” she used to say. Loved and hated at the same time, she was a pioneer in her time, and has since inspired many in the world of science. Eurochannel presents an entertaining documentary about the life and achievements of one of the greatest scientists in history with In the Footsteps of Marie Curie.
Directed by Krzysztof Rogulski and Marie-Jeanne Lardic, In the Footsteps of Marie Curie is an original documentary that reveals the story behind an extraordinary woman. Starting with a brief history of Poland, Curie’s birthplace, it recounts her childhood, adolescence, her relocation to France, her marriage and her death, all told in a riveting fashion.
By blending historical footage, interviews with historians and scientists, and scenes with stage actors, the directors deliver a compelling and poignant tale of Marie Curie’s life, remarking her triumphs as the first female Doctor of Physics and the only woman to have won two Nobel Prizes.
