Hillary Clinton, whose 2016 presidential campaign was hindered by the hacking and dissemination of Democratic National Committee emails, will moderate a Q&A with the directors and one of the subjects of the Netflix documentary “The Great Hack” following a Nov. 1 screening in New York City for Academy members and others.
Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer’s film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and began streaming on Netflix on July 24, explores the questionable actions of the UK-based company Cambridge Analytica during the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Brexit vote in the UK, and the efforts of a select few investigative journalists, including UK journalist Carole Cadwalladr, to expose them.
Noujaim, Amer, and Cadwalladr will be questioned by Clinton at the gathering, which is being hosted by filmmaker Geralyn Dreyfous (a producer of the film) and Chris Hegedus.
