BLUE HILL — On Wednesday, August 28 at 7 p.m. at Blue Hill Library, Peninsula Peace & Justice will screen The Great Hack, a new film detailing the inside story of Cambridge Analytica and the threat to democracies of unregulated data acquisition.
In this incisive and powerful film, former insiders detail just how the company worked to turn voters toward a socially conservative choice of candidate or policy, including the 2016 election of Donald Trump and Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. Rotten Tomatoes’ critics rated it 86% fresh.
Cambridge Analytica assembled virtually all the world’s people’s individual personality profiles on the basis of hacking and data gathering. The Great Hack warns citizens to address the risks of inattention to internet data exploitation, which open frightening prospects for social conflict and world domination.
