Description

A man with the passion, will, and innovative thinking to create a solution for the planet’s biggest problem.

This year, we are proud to announce that the Kaiser Thrive Award goes to SlingShot, Paul Lazarus’ (Seven Girlfriends, Cinequest 1999) intimate and inspirational portrait of Segway inventor, Dean Kamen, and his 15-year quest to solve the world’s safe water crisis. Iconoclast Kamen is a modern hero. His inventions, mostly medical devices, help people in need and ease suffering. Fifty percent of all human illness is the result of water borne pathogens. Kamen has invented an energy efficient vapor-compression distiller that can turn any unfit source of water into potable, safe water. Kamen’s passion and commitment to the impossible are as inspiring as his revolutionary invention.

Screening Sponsored by KAISER PERMANENTE and FILICE INSURANCE.
