Zero Days

by Alex Gibney Gala Premieres

In 2010, a shocking discovery was made by international security experts. A self-replicating computer worm called ‘Stuxnet’ spread around the world and threatened to shut down industrial control systems, such as water works and pipelines. It is believed that the malware was originally unleashed by American and Israeli secret services in order to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility. Alex Gibney’s documentary thriller centres on the current and future dangers of a global cyberwar. Computer programmes such as ‘Olympic Games’ harbour the ability to bring an entire country to its knees in just a few seconds – without leaving any evidence behind. The numerous experts questioned in this film underscore its main objective: to show that public debate is essential if disaster is to be averted.
