Event Description
In honor of cryptographer Alan Turing's upcoming birthday, the Spencer Museum of Art is screening a critically acclaimed docu-drama about the highs and lows of Turing's fascinating life. The Times has called the film "an overdue and thoroughly honorable telling of this dreadful story . . . Not only does it tell a story that has shaped our lives, but it serves as a posthumous public apology for past acts of gross ingratitude." Shown in conjunction with Cryptograph: An Exhibition for Alan Turing. (Running time: 81 minutes) http://www.turingfilm.com/
