Earlier this year documentary The Great Hack made its Sundance Film Festival debut to great acclaim. Now the film that delves deep into Facebook‘s Cambridge Analytica data scandal will be making its way over to streaming giant Netflix.
Helmed by Academy Award nominees Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, the investigative film uncovers the dark world of data exploitation and how data has become the world’s most valuable asset, even surpassing oil. The documentary includes interviews from key players on both sides of the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal and also takes a look at what people give up when they share information about themselves via phones and keyboards in today’s digital age. Notable figures that are touched upon in the documentary are Parsons School of Design Professor David Caroll and ex-Cambridge Analytica employee and whistleblower Brittany Kaiser.
The Great Hack hits Netflix and select theaters on July 24.
For more entertainment news, Netflix’s first trailer for Another Life tracks an intergalactic mission.
