A must-see
18 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a documentary filmmaker, I'm constantly searching for films that open my eyes to people, communities and parts of the world I would have otherwise not experienced. This film does a magnificent job of illuminating all three. When I first saw CODE at the Bentonville Film Festival, I was both captivated by the compelling storytelling and inspired to support change in closing the gender gap (in all industries). If you're a consumer of the products that come from Silicon Valley (like me), and not necessarily a greater of them, you may not have considered who's working hard to deliver us these luxuries. This film offers deep insight into the inner workings of the tech world, and will forever change the way you view equality. I highly recommend you see this film and share it with your friends.
