Of Shadows

Synopsis

Of Shadows shows the creative world of shadow theatre and the puppeteers whose way of life balances between a centuries-old rural narrative tradition and the modern, urban idea of a cultural heritage that has to be preserved. It is a touching portrait of a travelling theatre company in the northwest of China, where the age-old art is still kept alive.
