Cironka - Lisa Brennan Jobs
Lisa Brennan-Jobs came to life in the late '70s, through the love affair between her parents, artist Chrisann Brennan and Steve Jobs. His mother was a dreamy woman who pursued hippie ideals for a free life, and her father, before changing the world forever, was the man who made free telephone communication possible. Little Lisa's life was not easy with a father who only gave birth after her DNA test. In her childish eyes, Stive Jobs was a mythical figure, not very present in her life. The relationship with her father will always remain complex and laborious, with many misunderstandings and collaborations, with caring nicknames and long silences, with temporary affinities and deeply symbolic but silent gestures: among them, Lisa's first computer designation exactly in honor of his daughter, as Jobs admits before Bono Vox (the famous U2 band singer) during a dinner on the Blue Coast. "Cironka" is the story of a girl searching for her identity, always striving to maintain a balance between two opposing worlds of parents. Also, it is a powerful and thrilling portrait of Steve Jobs, honest and ruthless, far from any cliché, an intimate view of the man behind the myth.
" I see clearly today that we had incompatible goals. To him, I was but a stain on the brilliance of his career, for our story did not match the story of greatness and virtue he had intended to build for himself. My existence disrupted the string of his successes. The opposite was for me: the closer I was to him, the less I felt ashamed; he was part of the world and would speed up my coming to light. "
