Zero Days
Available on iTunes
Alex Gibney’s Zero Days is a documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules – the world of cyber war. The film tells the story of Stuxnet, self-replicating computer malware (known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own) that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. It’s the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyber warfare. Zero Days is a cautionary tale of technology, power, unintended consequences, morality, and the dangers of secrecy.
