“She began her career as an idealistic intern in the Barack Obama campaign, seeing the ascent of these technologies and tools being used,” explains Karim.

He says Brittany and her colleagues “invented how social media would be used in politics”. “Then we see the same person working at Cambridge Analytica, at the centre of Brexit, at the centre of the Trump campaign.”

The documentary focused on Carole Cadwalladr, who broke the story and appears in the film, looks at the fallout, and Christopher Wylie, who’s a whistleblower to the Cambridge Analytica scandal also featured in the movie.

“This is not about one company,” Julian Wheatland, the ex-chief operating officer of Cambridge Analytica, claims at one point. “This technology is going on unabated and will continue to go on unabated.[…] There was always going to be a Cambridge Analytica. It just sucks to me that it’s Cambridge Analytica.”
