Cullen Hoback doesn't know what Mark Zuckerberg thinks of his documentary "Terms and Conditions May Apply." But he's already made the Facebook leader smile once.
Toward the end of the documentary, which screens Friday and May 2 at the Newport Beach Film Festival, Hoback does an ambush interview with Zuckerberg, parking outside his Palo Alto home and intercepting him to ask a few questions about how Facebook and other websites affect users' privacy. After Hoback asks a question or two, his unwilling subject asks him to "please not" record the encounter.
The filmmaker, who brought a small camera crew with him, has his team comply — but keeps another tiny camera secretly recording in his glasses. When Zuckerberg thinks he's no longer being filmed, he breaks into a relaxed grin, which Hoback captures in a freeze-frame.
"Mark Zuckerberg smiled at me," he says in the film's narration. "And you know why? Because he thought I had stopped recording."
