One of the more intriguing upcoming documentaries this year is Billion Dollar Heist. Directed by Daniel Gordon, it’s the story of the Bangladeshi Central Bank theft. For those in the know, it’s a huge deal, though for those who don’t the trailer which just dropped should get you intrigued. The doc is available to rent and own on August 15th.
This is the synopsis:
Global, dynamic, and eye-opening, BILLION DOLLAR HEIST tells the story of the most daring cyber heist of all time, the Bangladeshi Central Bank theft. This feature documentary traces the origins of cyber-crime from basic credit card fraud to the wildly complex criminal organisations in existence today, supported by commentary and fascinating insight from highly regarded cyber security experts such as Eric Chien, Mikko Hypponen, Keith Mularski and renowned journalist, broadcaster and best-selling author of McMafia (which was adapted into a BBC One television series), Misha Glenny. A tale of epic proportions, BILLION DOLLAR HEIST shows how the key players on both sides of the law are embroiled in a global game of cat-and-mouse – with our money and security on the line.
