Summary
Starting out as an English teacher and small-scale Web site builder, Jack Ma became China's first Internet entrepreneur, gradually assembling the Alibaba Group - a digital empire that faced off against eBay and won. This award-winning independent film was created by an American who worked in Ma's company for several years. It draws on a vast archive of footage shot between 1995 and 2009, presenting a candid portrait of the visionary businessman and documenting Alibaba's journey from scrappy start-up to stratospheric success. The result is an astonishingly relevant chronicle, told from the standpoint of an American fly on a Chinese wall, so to speak - an eyewitness account of the strategies Alibaba put in place during the period in which China's economy began to rival that of the U.S
