For those of you not yet satiated by the post-mortem insights reported on Steve Jobs, here's something else you can chew on. Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, a documentary containing lost footage from a 1995 interview with the tech demigod, will be playing at the Castro Theatre on Tuesday night.

The 70-minute film will feature interviews with a fuller-faced Jobs, recorded while he was running his computer company, NeXT, for a PBS miniseries titled Triumph of the Nerds, according to Hollywood Reporter.

After Jobs died, journalist Robert Cringley found VHS interviews in Triumph of the Nerds director Paul Sen's garage. Remastered with narration from Cringley and released by Magnolia Pictures, Jobs speaks openly about his forced departure from Apple 10 years earlier.

Jobs in 1995 "was at his charismatic best -- witty, outspoken, visionary," according to Magnolia's site.

Touching on his early pioneering with the first Apple computer, running NeXT, and his visions for the future, the film is sure to melt the hearts of every iUser.

The film is being featured in select cities.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
