San Francisco based impact focused middle market lender Buckhill Credit sponsors the documentary Inventing Tomorrow at the San Francisco International Film Festival (SFFILM) 2018
Middle Market Lender Buckhill Credit invited the Bay Area parents and kids to watch the documentary Inventing Tomorrow at the 2018 SFFILM Festival on April 12th, 2018. The documentary directed by Laura Nix follows seven teenagers from around the world as they prepare and present projects for the gold standard of science fairs, Intel’s International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Director Luara Nix, and producers Diane Becker, Melanie Miller and the subject of the documentary Sahithi Pingali were also present at the event. At the end of the film screening, Sahithi Pingali and Laura Nix shared their experience of filming the documentary. Sahithi has led the efforts to clean up Bengaluru’s polluted lakes. The lake behind Sahithi’s home has twice burst into flames due to toxic waste. Once known as “The City of 1,000 Lakes,” it now has only 93 remaining, most of them overgrown with weeds and contaminated by industrial spillage or the dumping of raw sewage. Sahithi’s project has the dual aim of monitoring water quality and enabling locals to share that data.
