A screening of The Man Who Knew Infinity, followed by a panel discussion about the brilliance of Ramanujan and the importance of his work to modern mathematics.
Colonial India, 1913. Srinavasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught genius who fails at college due to his near-obsessive, solitary study of mathematics.
Determined to pursue his passion despite rejection and derision from his peers, Ramanujan writes a letter to G H Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent British mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge. Hardy recognises the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan’s raw talent and, despite the scepticism of his colleagues, brings him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored.
