"The Great Hack” film screening at the Rockport Opera House on Saturday, January 11

 

The Camden Conference presents a screening of "The Great Hack” at the Rockport Opera House on Saturday, January 11 at 2pm. The film is a nominee for the 2020 Oscar in the Documentary Feature category. This event is free and open to all.

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 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, Startup.com) 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?

This event is presented in anticipation of the 33rd Annual Camden Conference—The Media Revolution: Changing the World, February 21-23, 2020, live at the Camden Opera House and livestreamed to the Hutchinson Center in Belfast, Strand Theatre in Rockland, and Hannaford Hall in Portland.

 

The mission of the Camden Conference is to foster informed discourse on world issues. For more information, please visit www.camdenconference.org or call 207-236-1034.
