Are you ready for The Great Hack?

Netflix are releasing a documentary on the Cambridge Analytica scandal later this month - and it looks like a must-watch.


The description for The Great Hack reads:

"Data has surpassed oil as the world’s most valuable asset. It’s being weaponised to wage cultural and political warfare. People everywhere are in a battle for control of our most intimate personal details.

"From award-winning filmmakers Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, The Great Hack uncovers the dark world of data exploitation with astounding access to the personal journeys of key players on different sides of the explosive Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal.

"Academy Award nominees Amer and Noujaim (The Square, Control Room, continue their tradition of exploring the seismic ripples of social media with this riveting, complex film.

"The Great Hack forces us to question the origin of the information we consume daily. What do we give up when we tap that phone or keyboard and share ourselves in the digital age?"

The Great Hack first premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Directed by Amer and Noujaim, the film is produced by Karim Amer, Geralyn Dreyfous, Judy Korin and Pedro Kos.

The Great Hack lands on Netflix on July 24. But in the meantime, you can check out the trailer below.
