Code Rush

(1) wikipedia:
Code Rush is a 1998 documentary following the lives of a group of Netscape engineers in Silicon Valley. It was shot during a time of flagging company fortunes, the initial release of the Mozilla code as an open source project, and the friction of an impending AOL-Netscape merger. The documentary depicts Netscape programmers forgoing their normal lives and families in an attempt to save the company from ruin.
