Aptly named Amazon Empire, the almost two-hour documentary follows the founding and rise of one of the world’s largest tech giants and online retail platform. Made by the same team that worked on the Facebook investigation for FRONTLINE, the show covers every period of Amazon’s growth: from a humble book-selling website in a garage in Washington to now a tech company worth more than $1 trillion USD.
While Bezos himself doesn’t appear in the show for an interview, many appearances include Amazon executives, book publishers who have worked with him, and ex-employees. Through these interviews and other research, the documentary delves into every aspect of the massive conglomerate, including working conditions in its warehouses, the company’s rough relationship with book publishers, privacy and data collection concerns, and even the oft-heard criticism of Amazon becoming a monopoly.
For those interested in taking a closer look at one of the world’s most intriguing corporations, head over to PBS’ FRONTLINE website to view the full documentary now.
