The Movie for Class

It will take a while to download it, but the film for next Friday, Nov. 22 is here. Sorry, that was the wrong link. I’ll post an update. There are no subtitles, so you may need to watch a few times. Some of the dialog (especially about mathematics) may be very hard, so don’t feel badly if you don’t fully understand it. And there is a LOT of dialog, so be sure to spend time watching this in a QUIET setting.

There’s a website hosted by the author of the stage play on which this film was based, here, and an essay by the same author about adapting a life story to a play here. There is a short biography of Turing’s life here, which may help you make sense of the film’s jumping timelines.

Finally, here is an article about the impact of Turing on modern electronics and computers.
