FLORIDA PREMIERE
Director Robin Hauser Reynolds (RUNNING FOR JIM, 2013) returns to NIFF with her timely second feature, CODE: DEBUGGING THE GENDER GAP, which exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide. Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking out opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles, and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with personal stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.
