Synopsis

Based on the true story of self-taught Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, who travelled to England to publish his remarkable discoveries. Leaving behind his young bride, Ramanujan was excited to reveal his findings to the academic community, but instead came up against racial hostility. Ramanujan’s ability to produce theories seemingly instinctively was put under scrutiny by Professor GH Hardy, who without seeing the proof distrusted the young prodigy. Despite a frosty start, the two eventually formed a friendship that allowed them to push the academic boundaries and create work that fundamentally changed the world’s understanding of the concept of infinity.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
