SCIENCE FAIR

OUT 19 OC­TO­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Kate Sta­bles

Smart, charm­ing and in­spir­ing, this Sun­dance favourite tails nine in­ter­na­tional high-school­ers des­per­ate to win big at ISEF, ‘the Olympics of science fairs’. More Hoop Dreams than Spell­bound, it cel­e­brates the teens’ am­bi­tious projects (a Zika virus vac­cine, ‘fly­ing wing’ air­craft, and a wa­ter-pol­lu­tant de­tec­tor), while cast­ing a shrewd, sym­pa­thetic eye over their set­backs and strug­gles with school­mates.
