Part of Abandon Normal Devices Festival Preview, Al & Al: The Creator

On the occasion of Alan Turing’s Centenary celebrations, internationally-renowned artists Al & Al have been commissioned by Cornerhouse, AND Festival and Creative England to create this long-form experimental film.  The UK Premiere of The Creator, will be followed by a Q&A with the artists hosted by Visual Art Programme Manager and producer, Bren O’Callaghan. A far cry from the dry, sanitised interpretations of a man once shunned but now revered as a master of modern mathematics, Al & Al have chosen to blend fact with fantastical speculation in this, the re-telling of that fateful day when Turing chose to end his own life. Touching upon the myth of Snow White, Turing’s doomed encounter with his lover Arnold Murray (only yards from the current Cornerhouse site), his subsequent experimentation with Jungian psychoanalysis and the nature of human physicality versus artificial conciousness, this is both a dream of loss and sweat-beaded nightmare.

This will be an opportunity for you to put your questions to filmmakers Al & Al and delve deeper into the making of their work.
