OPENING NIGHT Film at 2019 Sundance Film Festival 

Data has surpassed oil as the world’s most valuable asset. It’s being weaponized 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 personal journeys of key players on different sides of the explosive Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal.
