This award-winning film tells the story of one of the 20th century’s most important people. 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 important legacy. In 1954, Turing committed suicide at age 41 after being forced to undergo chemical castration because he was gay. 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.
“It has been very exciting to see the positive response from people who have seen this film,” says Executive Producer Patrick Sammon. “Alan Turing was an amazing genius. It’s important for more people to learn about his life and appreciate his contribution to our world.”
