‘Inventing Tomorrow’ lends hope to the future

Oct 12, 2018
Students from around the world head for “the science fair of science fairs” in Laura Nix’s “Inventing Tomorrow.”

Camden — The Points North Institute and the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St./Route 1, continue their popular CIFF Selects series Wednesday, Oct. 24, with a 7 p.m. screening of the festival hit “Inventing Tomorrow” (2018, India/Mexico/Indonesia/USA) by award-winning director Laura Nix. The film is co-presented by Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance.

“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 the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles.

Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, the film immerses the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most.

“We’re thrilled to continue our popular CIFF Selects series with another incredible, award-winning title that will surely resonate widely with our audience” said Ben Fowlie, executive and artistic director of the Points North Institute.

Tickets are $10, free for students younger than 18 and for college students with a valid ID, and can be purchased on the day of show at the Camden Opera House box office. CIFF Selects is a program of the Points North Institute and is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. The final CIFF Selects of the 2018 season will be held on Nov. 28.
