"Inventing Tomorrow" follows six young scientists from Indonesia, Hawaii, India and Mexico as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today – right in their own backyards. Each student is preparing original scientific research that he or she will defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, we immerse the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most.
With 4.9 out of 6 stars, "Inventing Tomorrow" received a good overall rating from our film jury. On the basis of personal stories the film shows the influences of humans on their environment and accompanies its young protagonists in the development of scientific solutions.
The technically flawless film has some lengths, but is rich and stimulating to a large extent. The journalistic quality is good, but it requires some concentration for the layperson to follow the scientific lines of argumentation.
"Inventing Tomorrow" is a moving film that shows us the value of personal commitment. The initiative and persistence of the young scientists are inspiring and allow the viewer to look optimistically into the future.
