Steve Jobs documentary set to appear at SXSW

Forget the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic currently in production – a film featuring the man himself is heading to the film festival at South by Southwest (SXSW).

The furore that surrounds Jobs-related visual media is showing no sign of letting up. However, this documentary is particularly anticipated because it’s directed by Alex Gibney – an Academy Award winner. He won a Best Documentary Feature Oscar in 2007 for Taxi to the Dark Side – a documentary on torture and interrogation.

His take on the former Apple CEO and co-founder will be titled Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine and explores his influence on the relationship between people and computers.

Here’s the official synopsis:

When Steve Jobs died the world wept. But what accounted for the grief of millions of people who didn’t know him? This evocative film navigates Jobs’ path from a small house in the suburbs, to zen temples in Japan, to the CEO’s office of the world’s richest company, exploring how Jobs’ life and work shaped our relationship with the computer. The Man in the Machine is a provocative and sometimes startling re-evaluation of the legacy of an icon.

SXSW will run between 13-21 March 2015 in Austin Texas.
