Inventing Tomorrow

Directed by Laura Nix

What’s it like to grow up during the end of the world? Three precocious high-school scientists from around the globe are vying to become finalists at the world’s most prestigious science fair, ISEF, the International Science and Engineering Fair. While navigating the drama of adolescence, these creative disruptors propose cutting-edge solutions to the world’s climate crisis, competing for the grand prize against the brightest young minds on the planet.

Laura Nix directed “The Yes Men Are Revolting”, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival 2014, and the Berlinale 2015. Her other feature directing credits include “The Light In Her Eyes”, a documentary about a Quran school for girls in Syria which premiered at IDFA and was broadcast on POV, “Whether You Like It or Not: The Story of Hedwig” for New Line Cinema, and her award-winning fiction film “The Politics of Fur”. Her work has received support from the Bertha Foundation, BritDoc, Cal Humanities, the COBO Fund, the Danish Film Institute, and the Sundance Documentary Fund.
