PREVIEW: New documentary about internet privacy shows filmmaker’s confrontation with Facebook CEO

A new documentary about internet privacy, which features an awkward confrontation with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, opened in select theaters last week. “Terms and Conditions May Apply” shows the film’s director Cullen Hoback confronting Zuckerberg outside his California home.

“Do you still think privacy is dead? What are your real thoughts on privacy?” Holback asks sarcastically as Zuckerberg approaches him.

“Are you guys recording?” Zuckerberg replies. “Can you please not?”

In an interview with Agence France-Presse, Holback said he wanted to make Zuckerberg get a taste of what privacy infringement is like.

“I just wanted him to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record me,’ and I wanted to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record us.”

The Facebook CEO has infamously changed his network’s privacy terms regularly in the past. In a little-known internet chat conversation when he was 19, Zuckerberg referred to his users as “dumb f*cks” for trusting him with their information.

Hobeck’s documentary has received wide critical praise.
