Each screening of Zero Days will be introduced by a faculty member from the IU School of Informatics and Computing who will discuss cyber-terrorism, internet espionage and their real-world consequences, including how they impact IU
Zero Days is a non-fiction thriller about the world of cyberwar, investigating the never-before-told 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.
Zero Days 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.
Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) has been hailed as “the most important documentarian of our time.” –Esquire
