The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley
Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney tells the story of Theranos and examines the extent of the fraud that collapsed the company.
"Elizabeth Holmes arrived in Silicon Valley with a revolutionary medical invention. She called it “the Edison”: a small, hyper-sophisticated black box that performed 200 tests in minutes, all from a single drop of blood ... The hitch? All of it was a lie. The system was a hoax. And what began as one of 2014’s hottest tech companies — valued at nine billion dollars — dissolved into a fraudulent, bankrupt scheme that exposed Silicon Valley’s underbelly."
