INTERNATIONAL SELECTION

Synopsis:
A documentary thriller about the world of cyberwar. For the first time, the film tells the complete story of Stuxnet, a piece of 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. This is 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. Beyond the technical aspects of the story, Zero Days reveals a web of intrigue involving the CIA, the US Military’s new cyber command, Israel’s Mossad and Operations that include both espionage and covert assassinations but also a new generation of cyberweapons whose destructive power is matched only by Nuclear War.

Director’s Biography:
Director Alex Gibney has been called “the most important documentarian of our time” (Esquire) and “one of America’s most successful and prolific documentary filmmakers” (The NY Times T Magazine). Known for his cinematic, gripping, and deeply insightful documentaries, the filmmaker has won the Academy Award, multiple Emmy Awards, the Grammy Award, several Peabody Awards, the DuPont-Columbia, The Independent Spirit, and a few The Writers Guild of America Awards, and more. He won the Academy Award (R) for Taxi to the Dark Side in 2008. His 2013 film for HBO, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, won three Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. He also won an Emmy that year for Showtime’s The History of the Eagles.

Critic’s Word
Gibney’s best yet. A globetrotting cyber-detective story. Entertaining, exhaustive and suspenseful.
Alan Zilberman, The Washington Post

Enthralling. A thriller, a detective procedural, a startling chronicle of science fiction transformed into fact.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
