A CIPA event in conjunction with the IP Inclusive Women in IP network
A private screening of
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
At the Courthouse Hotel Cinema, Soho
17:30, Tuesday, 4 September, 2018
Join us for a private screening of the award-winning documentary, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, for the previously untold story of how the scientific talents of this 1940s screen siren were overlooked despite her creating patented technology that paved the way for GPS, Bluetooth and wi-fi.
Acting by day and drawing electronic inventions by night, Hedy devised a “secret communication system” to help the Allies to beat the Nazis. The film shows how a remarkable woman was able to change the course of modern history through her natural creativity and scientific flair.
In a world where patenting remains male-dominated, with 88% of all British patent applications coming from teams of all-male inventors, the film is as timely as it is compelling.
CIPA and IP Inclusive are delighted to be able to offer tickets to a private screening of this extraordinary film - a must-see for all involved in intellectual property - followed by a networking drinks reception, for just £30!
This is a small private cinema with limited seating – so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. All are welcome!
Please note: Registration will start from 17:30 and the viewing will commence at 18:00
