What If....

P = NP...!

I've reported previously on the independent film "Travelling Salesman" and now Plus.Maths.org has posted a (23-min.) podcast with the writer/director of the award-winning film here:

The thriller movie has to do with the consequences for a world in which the P vs. NP millennium problem is solved by proving that P = NP.

Wikipedia page on the film here:

A review of the movie here:

A more technical take on the film from KW Regan here:

And finally, homepage for the film here:

Unfortunately, though the film has been out for awhile now on the festival circuit, I can't find any info as to actual schedule dates where it is playing, nor if it would perhaps ever get wider distribution? (if anyone knows where to look for a schedule of play dates please let us know).
