Screenings were recently held in five U.S. locations including Galesburg, IL, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle. CODEBREAKER played to enthusiastic audiences during the film’s nine-city, U.S. premiere late last year in New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC.
This award-winning film tells the story of one of the most important people of the 20th century. Alan Turing set in motion the computer age and his World War II codebreaking helped save two million lives. Yet few people have heard his name, know his tragic story, or understand his legacy. In 1954, Turing committed suicide at age 41 after being forced to undergo chemical castration to “fix” his sexual orientation. He left behind a lasting legacy and lingering questions about what else he might have accomplished if society had embraced his unique genius instead of rejecting it.
TODpix, in conjunction with Story Center Productions and Furnace, is coordinating the U.S. theatrical distribution of this drama-documentary. “It’s exciting for us to be using this new ‘theatrical on demand’ model for the national release of CODEBREAKER,” said Andrew Fogelson, president of TODpix. “It’s a fitting tribute to Alan Turing that the digital technology he was so instrumental in creating is what we are using to make sure this film reaches as many people as possible.”
The film is attracting a worldwide audience. Nearly two million people on four continents have watched the film so far. Read more information about how you can see the film.
