As the clock counted down to the the 21st century, the world faced a potential technological disaster: a bug that could cause computers to misinterpret the year 2000 as 1900. Crafted entirely from archival footage and featuring first-hand accounts from computer experts, survivalists, scholars, militia groups, conservative Christians, and pop icons, Time Bomb Y2K is a prescient and often humorous tale about the power and vulnerabilities of technology. 

HBO Documentary Films, in association with Spinning Nancy, presents Time Bomb Y2K. Directors, Brian Becker and Marley McDonald; producer, Brian Becker; executive producers, Penny Lane and Gabriel Sedgwick. For HBO: executive producers, Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller, and Tina Nguyen.
