USA Today reports:
“Science Fair” is so funny and so moving, it almost seems too good to be true. But, no, despite the fact that the film by Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster features characters seemingly straight out of a Christopher Guest comedy, “Science Fair” is a documentary.
The film, which was acquired by National Geographic after winning Festival Favorite awards at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW, follows high schoolers from around the world as they prepare to compete in the prestigious International Science and Engineering Fair, or the “Olympics of science fair,” as one student puts it.
USA TODAY can exclusively share the new trailer, movie poster and release dates: The documentary is out Sept. 14 in New York and expanding wider on Sept. 21.
