"A riveting and important corrective to the myths Jobs helped to propagate." – The Guardian

Steve Jobs is one of the most revered and controversial figures of our time. The late Apple founder inspired devotion for his revolutionary overhaul of the computer industry, and revulsion for reportedly shady and unethical business tactics. From the creation of the first personal computer in the back of a garage to the grand reveal of the iPhone decades later, this film explores the enigmatic industry leader in all his light and shadow.

Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney (Mr Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, MIFF 2015; Finding Fela!, MIFF 2014) has tackled Scientology, the Catholic Church and Lance Armstrong in recent years, and now turns his uncompromising lens on Steve Jobs.
