Outstanding Entrepreneurial Films in the Spotlight:
+ Crocodile in the Yangtze (The amazing story of Jack Ma building Alibaba.com vs Ebay – A must see for every tech entrepreneur to re-energize their spirit and belief, this is not another ‘Social Network’.
|“Crocodile in the Yangtze follows China’s first Internet entrepreneur and former English teacher, Jack Ma, as he battles US giant eBay on the way to building China’s first global Internet company, Alibaba Group. An independent memoir written, directed and produced by an American who worked in Ma’s comany for eight years, Crocodile in the Yangtze captures the emotional ups and downs of life in a Chinese Internet startup at a time when the Internet brought China face-to-face with the West.
Crocodile in the Yangtze draws on 200 hours of archival footage filmed by over 35 sources between 1995 and 2009. The film presents a strikingly candid portrait of Ma and his company, told from the point of view of an “”American fly on a Chinese wall”” who witnessed the successes and the mistakes Alibaba encountered as it grew from a small apartment into a global company employing more than 16,000 staff.”
+ Uprising (The Facebook revolution that changed a whole Country of Egypt – A must see what Social Network is really worth and see how it impacts our lives).
|UPRISING tells the inside story of the Egyptian revolution from the perspective of its principal leaders and organizers. Featuring major figures including four Nobel Peace Prize nominees, several Egyptian presidential candidates, the former foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan, and former US Ambassadors and White House officials, along with never before seen footage, UPRISING provides the authoritative behind-the scenes view of one of the most dramatic events of our generation.|
+ Traveling Salesman ( An algorithm that could solve itself; does one exists?). Travelling Salesman is an intellectual thriller about four mathematicians hired by the U.S. government to solve the most elusive and powerful problem in computer science history — P VS. NP.
