Hi,
I'm looking for films about scientists and discoveries for a small film series I'm trying to show. The more diverse (or different from one another) the better.

So far, I have
- Imitation game /Turing/CS
- Gorillas in the Mist/Fossey/Zoology
- Theory of everything/Hawkins/Physics

- Not sure if the beginning of Indiana Jones would qualify!

TV shows are okay, too.
Target public: young adults, older teens, college age.

And, just for fun, Black Panther since science and superpowers are equally important to the film.

Any suggestions appreciated!!

    A beautiful mind makes me think= social sciences count too!

    More thoughts....
    Are there films about finding dinosaurs, archeologists, fossils... Can be historical, medical....
    I'm thinking there's a film about a woman looking for fossils....???

    --There is a movie about Jane Goodall called Jane.
    --The Martian
    --Any Robin Cook book that has been turned into a movie would have medicine/science (ex. Coma).
    --More along the lines of Indiana Jones there is Jurassic Park.
    --It is a stretch but perhaps Inherit the Wind (about the Scopes Monkey Trial) -- it is about science but not a scientist.

    If you really wanted to stretch it a bit, Good Will Hunting.
