Ed Pressman, producer of the upcoming sloan-supported The Man Who Knew Infinity, was honored this week by the Abu Dhabi Film Festival with its prestigious lifetime achievement award.

Pressman has produced more than eighty films in the U.S. and abroad, including “Wall Street” and “Bad Lieutenant.” Abu Dhabi Film Festival director Ali Al Jabri noted in a statement Pressman's talent “for fostering the careers of the young and inspired.”

The Man Who Knew Infinity, currently in post-production, will see release in 2015. It is the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, a poor Indian Brahmin who was a self-educated mathematical prodigy considered one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century and stars Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons.
