poster227x227Alex Gibney is an Academy Award winning filmmaker who has now turned his sights to one of the most significant events in modern cyber conflict, the creation of software designed to execute on a mission of incredible stakes. If this software succeeded it held the promise of avoiding a large scale conventional war which could have killed tens of thousands or more. If it failed then that war could have even led to a wider, global conflict. Success was critical.

From the movie description: A black ops cyber attack launched by the U.S. and Israel on an Iranian nuclear facility unleashed malware with unforeseen consequences. The Stuxnet virus infiltrated it’s pre-determined target only to spread it’s infection outward, ultimately exposing systemic vulnerabilities that threatened the very safety of the planet. Delve deep into the bourgeoning world of digital warfare in this documentary thriller from Academy Award® winning filmmaker Alex Gibney.
