This film explores of the legendary myth of Alan Turing, father of the computer age and maker of Artificial Intelligence machines.
Combining Lynchian nightmare with the prophetic themes of J.G. Ballard, The Creator takes you into the surreal dream world of the visionary scientist, where his binary children embark upon a quest to discover their origins and destiny in the universe.
This new film commission premieres on the centenary of Turing's birth. Commissioned and produced by Cornerhouse and Creative England (previously as Vision + Media). This screening forms part of Homotopia Queer Arts Festival.
Followed by a Q&A with artists Al & Al and producer/curator Bren O' Callaghan.
About the Biennial Film Programme
As part of The Unexpected Guest, FACT and the Liverpool Biennial present one of the most ambitious programmes of contemporary artist film ever seen in Liverpool, all of which are inspired by the Biennial's theme of Hospitality.
Through a series of weekly film screenings, Q&A sessions, and film forums, we present a survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video focusing on the recent propensity of artists to work in the medium to feature-length format.
