Trailer Watch: High-School Programmer Girls Compete to Change the World in 'CodeGirl'

"Think locally, code globally" might well be the motto of the Technovation Challenge, the largest app-development competition for girls. 

The 2015 Technovation competition is the subject of documentarian Lesley Chilcott’s "CodeGirl," which profiles female high-school students from all over the world who have just three months to conceive of, program and present an app that solves a problem in their community. If you’re in need of an inspirational pick-me-up, "CodeGirl" just might be the girls-changing-the-world cure that the doctor ordered. 

"CodeGirl" will open in Los Angeles on November 1, as well as stream on YouTube on November 1-5.
