Alex Gibney’s ZERO DAYS

“Easily the most important film anyone has released this year."

“Easily the most important film anyone has released this year, it is a documentary that deserves to be seen by every sentient citizen of this country – and indeed the world.” Godfrey Cheshire (RogerEbert.com)

IDFA: November 16-27. From today on, AskTheRightQuestions, will share a daily IDFA 2016 documentary that we think you should go, and see! Online ticket sales starts tonight, November 7 – 19.00 CET

Alex Gibney’s ZERO DAYS is a documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules— the world of cyberwar. The film tells the story of Stuxnet, 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. 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.


Gibney sat down with Reason TV to discuss the film, whether cyber-weapons are analogous to nuclear weapons, and whether he considers himself a “conspiracy factualist.”
