Steve Jobs

The Hudson Valley Programmer's Group and Woodstock Film Festival are excited to announce the special screening of Alex Gibney’s highly anticipated documentary STEVE JOBS: THE MAN IN THE MACHINE, courtesy of Magnolia Pictures. The film will screen on Friday, August 14, 9:30pm at Upstate Films Woodstock before the wide release in September.

Synopsis

From Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, the creator of such controversial and thought-provoking films as Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks, and The Armstrong Lie, comes another penetrating and contemplative exploration of contemporary society and the men and women who shape it:  Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine.

Perhaps the most publicly revered corporate figure of the technology age, Jobs’s untimely death at the age of 56 in 2011 set off a worldwide outpouring of grief from consumers who worshipped his signature products such as the iPhone and the iMac.

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine is no corporate sanctioned hagiography and was made without Apples cooperation or that of Jobs’ immediate family. 

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine is an evocative portrait of one mans legacy. It unravels the larger than life myth Steve Jobs so deliberately crafted, and examines the perpetuation of his values, which continue to shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.
