Code 2600 Film Description

“Code 2600 documents the rise of the Information Technology Age as told through the events and people who helped build and manipulate it. The film explores the impact this new connectivity has on our ability to remain human while maintaining our personal privacy and security.”

Forbes Magazine calls Code 2600 “The Best Hacking Film You Haven’t Seen (Yet).”

The Zypix Productions film is written and directed by Jeremy Zerechak, who will also attend the screening at UC.

The film is presented by a spring semester UC Forward student seminar. Students representing a range of academic fields (business, political science and IT, for example) are exploring the behavioral, political/strategic and technical aspects of cybersecurity.

The UC Forward Cyberattack Seminar is led by Richard Harknett, head of the UC department of political science, and Mark Stockman, associate professor of information technology.

Additional film sponsors include the department of political science (McMicken College of Arts and Sciences), department of information technology (College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services) and UCIT Information Security.
