Investigative Filmmaker and Journalist: Cullen Hoback


7 PM

Student Center Ballroom


Cullen Hoback is an investigative filmmaker with a successful history of illuminating the relationship between technology and civil liberties.

His film, Terms and Conditions May Apply (2013), was a New York Times Critic’s Pick, and has been seen by millions. Released before the Snowden leaks, it documented the relationship between major online corporations and the government, revealing how privacy is being eroded via 1s and 0s. Hoback has written op-eds for many journals including The Guardian, presented as faculty at The American Bar Association Anti-Trust Conference, and has appeared as a privacy expert on networks and shows including MSNBC, CNN, NPR, Huffington Post, Stossel, Glenn Beck and The Young Turks.

His latest investigatory doc, What Lies Upstream, was Opening Night Film at Slamdance in Park City and will be featured on PBS Independent Lens in 2018. Using science and regulation as exploratory tools, the film asks the question: Why is the system to protect drinking water in America broken? He is currently working on a followup to Terms and Conditions May Apply.
