Series - Paranoid Data: Pre-Millennium Tension in Film

Seattle is the setting for this 1983 classic that stars a young Matthew Broderick in his second feature film role. David (Broderick) is a precocious high school kid that has a knack for computers, and in an effort to find a video game company, he accidentally hacks into a government supercomputer, WOPR. When he engages in a game of Global Thermonuclear War with WOPR, he triggers a series of fake and real scenarios involving nuclear missiles that could possibly start World War III and he must find a way to stop it. Featuring cumbersome computers that are built to learn, very much like A.I. today, WarGames is a battle of man vs. machine. While in the 80s it was clear who should win in this scenario, it is less clear who has control today. And dont forget: WarGames was nominated for three Academy Awards  sound, cinematography, and screenplay.

Screens with The 414s (2015)
Imagine a group of computer-savvy teenagers from Milwaukee that watched the movie WarGames and were inspired to hack into high-profile computer systems in the US. They exist; they named themselves the 414s and became the first widely known computer hackers, whose work ultimately changed how we approach computer interconnectivity today.
