The Great Hack explores how a data company named Cambridge Analytica came to symbolize the dark side of social media in the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as uncovered by journalist Carole Cadwalladr.

 

“gripping (terrifying) story … stunning graphics, as well, brilliantly visualizing the concept of our brains as computers under threat”
-- Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Film Festival Today

“an important film, one that people need to see”
--Tamsin Shaw, The New York Review of Books

"worth watching to make you re-evaluate the use of data and the willingness of the powerful to corrupt"
--Lucy Hunter Johnston, London Evening Standard
