Synopsis

See what Steve Wozniak said about Welcome to Macintosh at Macworld 2009!

“Welcome to Macintosh” is the first documentary of its kind to mix history, criticism and an unapologetic revelry of all things Apple into a movie experience. The film explores the early years of Apple, the many challenges Apple has faced, and what the future may hold for the company and it’s products. Ex-Apple employees, engineers and community members offer insight on the company’s innovations, failures, cultural impact and what the future may be like beyond the reign of its co-founder Steve Jobs. Interviews include notable Apple personalities Andy Hertzfeld, co-creator of the original Macintosh, Guy Kawasaki, long time Mac evangelist, Leander Kahney, author of the book “Cult of Mac”, Jim Reekes, creator of the Macintosh start-up sound and Ron Wayne, original co-founder of the Apple Computer Company.

With acceptance in five international film festivals, “Welcome to Macintosh” is reaching its goal of bringing the story of Apple and the Macintosh to the new generation of iPhone and iPod users around the world.
