Alex Gibney, the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker behind Taxi to the Dark Side and Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, is back with his latest offering — Zero Days, about the widespread destruction caused by cyber-warfare.
Zero Days reportedly focuses heavily on the Stuxnet computer worm built jointly by the United States and Israel that crippled Iran’s nuclear reactors several years ago.
According to the film’s distributor, Magnolia Pictures: “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.”
Gibney wrote and directed Zero Days. He previously won an Oscar for 2008’s Taxi to the Dark Side and was nominated for 2006’s Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.
The documentary is in theaters, on Amazon, and iTunes all at the same time July 8th.
