Zero Days 15

Zero Days

What do you do when your government launches a global war and keeps it a secret? That is the question that haunted Oscar®-winning director Alex Gibney (We Steal Secrets, Going Clear) when making Zero Days, a film about the spectre of a new generation of classified cyber weapons.

This is a documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules - the world of cyberwar. It tells the story of Stuxnet, self-replicating computer malware (know 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.

A cautionary tale of technology, power, unintended consquences, morality, and the dangers of secrecy.
