Science Fair

"Even in a year of extraordinary documentaries like 'RBG,' 'Won't You Be My Neighbor' and 'Three Identical Strangers,' 'Science Fair' is something special." - Los Angeles Times

“There's real drama and real joy in the air in Science Fair, an enlightening, delightful documentary about the International Science and Engineering Fair, or ISEF, for short.

“ISEF is the annual competition where 1,700 finalists from science fairs across the globe gather to present projects to judges in hopes of being recognized as one of the world's sharpest young minds. It's the Super Bowl of high school science fairs, and there's a $75,000 prize at stake.

“This isn't pouring vinegar into baking soda to create a foaming volcano. ISEF finalists experiment with issues ranging from the Zika virus to nerve tissue regeneration.

“Filmmakers Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster follow a handful of students on their way to the 2017 ISEF in Los Angeles. We meet one student, Kashfia Rahman, who is all but anonymous in her Brookings, South Dakota, school, despite placing in the previous year's ISEF.

“It's symptomatic of the way we treat the sciences, and those whose smarts are off the charts. Science Fair seeks to change that.” - The Detroit News
