Codebreakers: The Alan Turing Story
  • Description

    Codebreaker: The remarkable and tragic story of one of the 20th century's most important people; Alan Turning. 100 years after his birth, we rediscover the man and the mystery.

    Codebreaker re-counts the story of this maverick British genius who was crucial to founding three new fields of science as well as breaking the Nazis' naval Enigma code during World War II. Historians credit his codebreaking with helping to shorten the war by two years and 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 1952. He was forced to undergo so-called "organo-therapy" (chemical castration) to "change" his sexual orientation. In despair, Turing committed suicide in 1954. He was only 41 years old.

    "Codebreaker is an award-winning drama documentary that uses emotional and engaging reconstructions to bring Turing to life in intricate detail and high color. 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."
