In Theatres & On VOD: ZERO DAYS

zeroComing to theatres and to VOD this Friday, July 8: ZERO DAYS

Alex Gibney’s exploration of Internet-based threats to global security made its debut at Berlin earlier this year. The film has gone on to screen at Nantucket, AFI Docs, Sydney, Edinburgh, Biografilm, and the upcoming Jerusalem and New Zealand fests.

I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
Oscar®-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney turns his attention to the disturbing world of cyber warfare in this urgent, riveting investigation of Stuxnet, a self-replicating computer virus that was designed to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program but inadvertently spread throughout the world. Surprising evidence points to the collusion of two world powers in creating the sophisticated weapon; though both governments officially deny it, they still face recrimination and retaliation. Clearly laying out the origins and trajectory of this powerful new mode of international combat, Gibney convincingly demonstrates its staggering destructive potential.

  1. Bit dramatic, but otherwise very good. Presents a timeline of events with considerable attention given to the details of how this particular virus was used as well as more general considerations about what the proliferation of such malware means for a world that grows more reliant on technology by the day. Definitely worth your time.
