Data has surpassed oil as the world’s most valuable asset. It’s being weaponized to wage cultural and political warfare. People everywhere are in a battle for control of our most intimate personal details. From award-winning filmmakers Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, The Great Hack uncovers the dark world of data exploitation with astounding access to the personal journeys of key players on different sides of the explosive Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal.
Academy-Award nominees Amer and Noujaim (The Square, Control Room, Startup.com) continue their tradition of exploring the seismic ripples of social media with this riveting, complex film. The Great Hack forces us to question the origin of the information we consume daily. What do we give up when we tap that phone or keyboard and share ourselves in the digital age?
The Great Hack Netflix documentary lifted the curtain on our vulnerability and how public opinion and the very foundation of our democracy is being manipulated and shaken to the core. Join us for a fascinating discussion with director Karim Amer, writer/producer Pedro Kos, investigative reporter who broke the story of the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data breach Carole Cadwalladr, and Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center International Policy Director Marietje Schaake as they go deep inside the complex issues of data, privacy and Russian intervention and what it means for America, and the free world.
