Inventing Tomorrow
United States of America, 2018
Duration: 105 min
Language: English
Subtitles: Russian

Clearly defining the problem is the first step to its solution. The characters of this documentary, young scientists from all over the world, have already done that. They are going to solve problems that they face every day. Metal mining contaminates water while intensive fishing depletes marine resources. The environmentally unfriendly transport cause air pollution in overpopulated cities. The soil becomes poorer due to industrial waste. Inventing Tomorrow tells the story of several young researchers as they prepare their projects for the largest convening of high school scientists in the world, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)

The film explores what modern science looks like for students who have just taken the path of scientific discoveries. It demonstrates how personal ambitions, hard work, and external support turn a private initiative into a working project. It also can work as a kind of a sociocultural study. The director shows us how family habits, local features, lifestyle, and political environment develop awareness in teenagers and influence their active social views. Science is an exciting adventure with an open finale and the new generation of scientists is a hope for a mindful future.
