Chairman

La wears his grey coif and rimless glasses well. With those badges of studiosity, he could easily be lost in a crowd, but that would be far underestimating the fluent French speaker who exudes a quiet power. Since 2014, La has headed China Film Group, thereby having a major hand in film import and many local and international movie investments.

Now CFG is in the forefront of the state wave taking over the Chinese movie industry, in line with direction from the Communist Party’s Propaganda Department.
