ĊineXjenza to spark science debates

Spazju Kreattiv is showing the film The Imitation Game as part of its concept ĊineXjenza.

The film is set in the winter of 1952, when British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary.

They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offence of homosexuality – little did officials know they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

ĊineXjenza aims to spark debates around science topics raised in films, discussing their likelihood in the future and current technologies. At this event, the birth of modern computing and LGBT rights will be discussed, both issues brought up in the film.

The discussion will be held with an expert in the field from the University of Malta. Snacks and refreshments will be served during the discussion.

The Imitation Game will be shown at the St James Cavalier cinema, Valletta, tomorrow at 7pm. Entrance is free and booking is not required.

ĊineXjenza is supported by the STEAM Summer School project, funded by the Erasmus+ of the EU. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.
