Storyline

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 company 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 16,000 staff. The film has traveled to 20 film festivals worldwide, winning "Best Documentary" at the San Francisco United ...

Dream..Dare..And Did It.....Hats Off!!!Jack Ma!!
5 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

The moment I saw him giving a last speech in this documentary, I've decided to work and meet this person in my life once.

The documentary starts from the very beginning of business life of Jack Ma and his struggle.

During this extraordinary documentary you'll be thrilled, you'll feel some deep courage inside your-self.

This is the story which will tell you that Even Harvard MBA degree will not assure success in front of the person who strongly believes in his dreams.

All I want to say to you if you are the person who wants to live his dreams, then watch this documentary and you'll not be sorry..!
