New Trailer for Alex Gibney's Terrifying Cyber Warfare Doc 'Zero Days'
"Something as simple and innocuous as this becomes a challenge for all of us to maintain accountability control…" Magnolia has debuted a second trailer (see the first one here) for the documentary Zero Days, the latest from Alex Gibney, profiling the "Stuxnet" virus. The documentary premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year (read my review) and it's actually about the beginning of the cyber warfare era that we've quietly entered. This trailer barely scratches the surface of what they get into with this doc, though it does feature some of the really chilling lines and moments where you start to realize this is a global issue. This doc is terrifying in the way it makes you feel out of control with what's happening in this world. Enjoy.
Here's the second official trailer for Alex Gibney's documentary Zero Days, direct from YouTube:
Alex Gibney's Zero Days is a documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules— the world of cyberwar. 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 cyberwarfare. Zero Days is the latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, of Taxi to the Dark Side, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, The Armstrong Lie, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine. Magnolia will release the doc in theaters + on VOD starting July 8th.
