Parts of the interview had aired in a television special in the mid-'90s, but most of the sit-down was shelved and assumed to be lost over the subsequent 17 years.

Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said the film will be "enlightening and entertaining for anyone that’s interested in Jobs’ legacy … It’s a valuable piece of history that has thankfully been rescued from obscurity.”

Jobs died in Oct. 2011 at the age of 56.
