Slingshot

SLINGSHOT 550“An eye-opening bio of inventor Dean Kamen …  much more than a description of a new technology – it’s an examination of why science is not more highly valued in our society.” –Orlando Weekly

Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, has been called the Thomas Edison of our time, and he wants to solve the world’s water crisis. This film follows the man who created the state-of-the-art dialysis systems and reinvented the heart stent, build a wheelchair that can climb stairs, and has served as inspiration for tens of thousands of young inventors, as he pushes to get a distillation device in villages around the world. Paul Lazarus’s film, winner of multiple festival awards, tells the inspirational tale of a man determined to make a difference. (U.S., 2015, 88m, digital)
