Magnolia Pictures to Distribute Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview

Share

Magnolia Pictures announced today they have acquired US rights to Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, a documentary officially described as being a “candid, in-depth interview with the late visionary.”

Filmed in 1995 by Robert Cringely, the interview sees Jobs discussing at length his early days, career battles, and vision for the future. Small portions of the piece were used for a television series at the time, but the vast majority was shelved, and for 17 years thought to be lost. Recently unearthed, it is being presented in its unedited entirety, providing a fascinating look at Jobs at a particularly interesting, transitory moment in his career, two years before he would go on to retake control of Apple.

‘Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview’ is a fascinating document that will be enlightening and entertaining for anyone thats interested in Jobs legacy, said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. Its a valuable piece of history that has thankfully been rescued from obscurity.

The film had limited special screenings at select theaters in the Landmark circuit earlier this year and Magnolia will open the film in select theaters on May 11th, with a DVD and VOD release to follow later this summer.

Said Robert Cringely: “We knew we were witnessing history being made back in 1995 but the Landmark audiences confirmed it: they were stunned by our unconventional documentary, making this broader release a no-brainer. This is Steve Jobs as never seen before.”

More information about the project is available at the film’s official site.
