The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) and George Csicsery are pleased to announce the world premiere of a one-hour documentary film about a remarkable mathematician whose contributions were recognized with a Fields Medal just a few years before her untimely death.

This biographical film is about Maryam Mirzakhani, a brilliant woman, and Muslim immigrant to the United States who became a superstar in her field. The story of her life are complemented with sections about Mirzakhani’s mathematical contributions, as explained by colleagues and illustrated with animated sequences. Throughout, we look for clues about the sources of Mirzakhani’s insights and creativity.


MSRI will also host two events at the 2020 JMM.
