Steve Jobs: The Man in The Machine

Synopsis /

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs’ image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died? From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine is critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant. A candid look at Jobs’ legacy featuring interviews with a handful of those close to him at different stages in his life, the film is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend. Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine unravels the larger than life myth he so deliberately crafted and examines the endurance of his values which shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.

Magnolia Pictures released the film in theaters and on VOD platforms on September 4, 2015. CNN Films will premiere the film on television in early 2016.

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine was the opening film, kicking off the 58th San Francisco Intl. Film Festival in April 2015.
