Netflix has provided us with some really good documentaries, and they’re hoping they can add another one to the list with The Great Hack.
The documentary looks at the recent “Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal and asks what are we sacrificing in return for the ever-expanding online world we are creating.”
Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim are the directors behind this project. The Great Hack premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews.
You can check out the official synopsis and trailer below. It’ll be available to stream on Netflix July 24. It’ll also be released in select theaters.
