SlingShot focuses on inventor Dean Kamen and his 15-year quest to solve the world’s safe water crisis.

This indefatigable man just might have enough passion, will, and innovative thinking to create a solution for a crisis affecting billions.

An eccentric genius with a provocative worldview, Kamen takes on grand-challenges one invention at a time, helping people in need. Half of all human illness comes from water-borne pathogens. Kamen’s SlingShot is an energy-efficient machine that turns any unfit water (seawater, poisoned wells, river sludge…) into pure, safe water – no chemicals or filters needed.

Recently, Kamen allied himself with Coca-Cola . Will Kamen’s technological know-how combined with Coke’s global reach be a powerful enough force to address this global challenge?

SlingShot is both an inspirational character study and a look at the trajectory of Kamen’s vapor compression distiller from its earliest development through recent trials in rural Ghana and beyond.


Throughout the year, SlingShot will be playing at film festivals all over the world. Check below for a date and time near you.
