ZERO DAYS

"Zero Days is reminiscent of that scene in Skyfall when Q tells 007 that he can do more damage with his laptop before his morning cup of Earl Grey than Bond can do in a year." – BBC

Academy Award winning (for 2007's Taxi to the Dark Side) documentarian Alex Gibney (Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, MIFF 2015; Finding Fela!, MIFF 2014) turns his fine-tuned investigative eye to the frightening world of state-sponsored cyber warfare.

In 2010, IT experts discovered the Stuxnet virus, which had purposely disabled enrichment centrifuges at Iran's Natanz nuclear plant. Too complex to be the work of a single hacker, the program was traced to a joint US–Israeli intelligence operation codenamed Olympic Games. State-backed Iranian hackers retaliated by infecting the Bank of America with an equally devastating piece of malware, which corrupted systems all over the world. In a few keystrokes, a Pandora's box of cyber warfare was opened, and there's no treaty in sight.

Containing the depth of research that distinguishes Gibney's work, Zero Days is a chilling and eye-opening exposé of the new frontier of international surveillance and espionage, and its catastrophic implications for civilian infrastructure and personal freedom.

"[A] white-knuckle nonfiction thriller ... clear, urgent and positively terrifying at times." – Variety
