Codebreaker recounts the story of maverick British genius Alan Turing, who played a critical part in the founding of three new fields of science, as well as breaking the Nazis’ Enigma code during World War II, saving millions of lives. As the founding father of computer science and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing envisioned our digital world long before anyone else. Turing’s visionary brilliance was overshadowed by his conviction for “gross indecency” with another man in 1954.
Documentary elements seamlessly interconnect with drama scenes in Codebreaker to offer a three-dimensional picture of Turing, his accomplishments, his tragic end and his lasting legacy.
Patrick Sammon, the Creator and Executive Producer of Codebreaker, will talk about Turing’s life and the making of the film, followed by a Q&A session. To see a trailer visit TuringFilm.com.
Film duration: 53 minutes, followed by a 30min discussion and Q&A. Light refreshments will be served at the end of the event.
