Our Times (2021)

In the early nineties, with the deepening of reform and opening up, the development of the information industry opened a new page. Two young people, Xiao Chuan (Wu Lei) and Pei Qinghua (Hou Minghao) from the Institute of Computer Science of Yanjing University started their careers by stealing handmade cards and were selected by the director, Tan Qizhang, to be part of the tide of computer sales. The story of the researchers, led by the two of them, who saw the opportunity to take advantage of the policy, starting from acting as an agent for foreign computers and transitioning to independent research and development, and transforming from grassroots to a generation of business wizards, also chronicles the history of China’s rapid development at the end of the 20th century.
