FILM GUIDE WARGAMES
At the forefront of popular computer hacking in the 1980s, WarGames takes on advances in national security and the vulnerabilities of new technology as the backdrop for a coming-of-age thriller starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy. Almost 30 years after its release, John Badham and Lawrence Lasker's Oscar-nominated film speaks to contemporary concerns of modern-day network security, gaming technology, and hacking culture. Sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of the TFI Sloan Film Program, now in its 11th year.

After the Movie: Stay for a conversation with director John Badham, actress Ally Sheedy, Bitcoin Technical Lead Gavin Andresen, William D. Casebeer, PhD, Program Manager, Defense Sciences Office at DARPA (USAF, retired), and computer hacker and inventor Pablos Holman about the historical relationship between military strategy and technical innovation, storytelling with gaming and simulation tools, and the challenges of depicting cutting-edge technology on the big screen. Moderated by Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Craig Hatkoff.
