General Magic

Directed by Sarah Kerruish and Matt Maude

United States, 93 minutes

In 1990, the brightest and most creative minds form General Magic, an exciting new company. Working side by side, the trail-blazing entrepreneurs create the “next big thing” in Silicon Valley. By 1994, the company produces its first product: a handheld, wireless personal computer—what we now know as a smartphone. The catch…it’s two decades too early. Without the world wide web to support communication, General Magic crumbled. Through archival footage and interviews, we ride the wave of triumph and tragedy, and ultimately celebrate the value of big dreams.

Q&A discussion to follow with Dean Winkel from the Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship at John Carroll University
