The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley
Alex Gibney / 2019, USA, 119 min

The billionaire tech whiz who wanted to fight disease but turned out to be a part of an industry sickness.

The story of the rise and fall of Theranos, the one-time multibillion-dollar healthcare company founded by Elizabeth Holmes. In 2004, she dropped out of Stanford to start a company that was going to revolutionize healthcare. In 2014, Theranos was valued at $9 billion, making Holmes the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world. Just two years later, Theranos was cited as a “massive fraud” by the SEC, and its value was less than zero. Drawing on extraordinary access to never-before-seen footage and testimony from key insiders, director Alex Gibney will tell a Silicon Valley tale that was too good to be true. With all the drama of a real-life heist film, the documentary will examine how this could have happened and who is responsible, while exploring the psychology of deception.
