ORDER OF MAGNITUDE is an epic supercut that chronicles Silicon Valley's 21st century obsession with growth. Using every video appearance by Mark Zuckerberg from 2004-18, the film was assembled from three of Mark’s most favored words: “more,” “grow,” and his every utterance of a number. The result is a nearly fifty minute film that reveals primary topics of focus for the tech CEO, acting as a lens on what he cares about, how he thinks, and what he hopes to attain.
