Inventing Tomorrow

U.S., 2018

Welcome to the world of competitive science fairs! More than just watching students try to get first place, Inventing Tomorrow follows young scientists from around the world as they present their cutting-edge projects — that are combating some of the world’s most pressing environmental threats — at the prestigious International Science and Engineering Fair. From a young woman who invents an air filter for ships mining in Indonesia to a trio of endearing boys from Monterrey, Mexico, who develop a paint that can absorb pollution, these wunderkinds are an inspiration for the future.

DCP, color, 105 min. Director: Laura Nix.
