I contributed a chapter on the Chinese film industry but unfortunately, couldn’t attend this exciting event. How risky and unstable this business is! In that chapter, I discussed the LeVision Pictures as one of the 5 leading and promising companies in the Chinese film industry, but the LeVision “Empire” seems to be in a sudden collapse.  Can it be viewed as “The Upside of Disruption?” How ironic it is!
