Zero DaysAlex Gibney

Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney created an intriguing and infuriating exciting documentary about an elusive but real subject: the international war raging in cyber space. The film tells an hallucinatory and unsoothing tale any global citizen should watch. Because the knowledge to shut down everything all at once is already present, and unfortunately not always in the right hands.

In 2010 computer hackers launched Stuxnet, a computer virus spreading through malware and so powerful not one computer was able to counter it. The virus launch was part of a true cyber war involving the United States, Britain, Israel and Iran. The computer worm was commissioned by the US and Israeli government with the intent of sabotaging Iran's nuclear program. But it got out of control and spread to numerable computers worldwide.

With two Oscar nominations and one effectively won Oscar documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology, We Steal Secrets, Enron, Taxi to the Dark Side) is not to be underestimated. Zero Days is a true documentary thriller, with a hallucinatory tale that makes you shiver in and bounce off your seat. Razor sharp and - despite the invisible topic - visually captivating Gibney explains what was going on during the cyber war that caused the Stuxnet launch and sheds light on its implications. As journalist Kurt Vandemaele from newspaper De Morgen wrote: 'No film deserves more applause than Zero Days.'
