  • History may well remember the work of Watson and Crick that shaped biology, but it was British chemist Rosalind Franklin who provided the key to the double helix DNA discovery. Photograph 51 shares the complex story of an ambitious female scientist in a world of men, her pursuit for the secret of life, and her forgotten accomplishments.

    By Anna Ziegler. Directed by Vanessa Stalling. Featuring Chaon Cross as Rosalind Franklin
