“Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview” Playing at Sunshine Cinema Tonight
In the wake of his death, it’s Steve Jobs fever across the land. Here at home, makeshift memorials spring up at Apple retail locations, and even an honorary tree was planted in Tompkins Square Park. Further capitalizing on this momentum of reminiscence, an unedited interview from 1995 is hitting select Landmark-operated theaters this week. And today is your last day to catch it at the Sunshine Cinema on East Houston. Showings are at 7:15 and 9:00.
The release is entitled Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, and was shot for for the 1995 PBS miniseries, Triumph of the Nerds. Apparently only ten minutes of the footage was included in the final program. However, there were intentions to use other portions for future episodes. That was not to be as the master tapes were lost en route from the UK (production facility) to the US. With some miraculous foresight, director Paul Sen made a VHS copy during the production process, which was unearthed after Jobs passed.
