The Grasshopper Women Movie

“The Grasshopper Women: A Peruvian Tale of Globalization” is a personal, moving, and sometimes humorous look at the lives of a group of pioneering Peruvian women who were participants in an ambitious nationalistic experiment to create an elite corps of computer professionals in a poor, developing Latin American country.  It explores their complex experiences in a male-dominated society and profession and the way that their IBM training enabled them, despite the original nationalistic intentions of the program, to launch careers and lives all over the world—in Venezuela, Brazil, France, Canada, and the United States.
