Maverick female director Xiao Jiang tells the charming tale of a small-town cinema and the lifelong influence it has on a young boy and girl. Years later the two meet by chance under unusual circumstances in Beijing, an encounter that sparks both nostalgia and romance. ELECTRIC SHADOWS was praised by Time Magazine, who named it one of the Best Films of the Year and said “movie love was never so engulfing, and rarely so sweet, as in this petite, elevating heart-warmer.”
DIRECTED BY XIAO JIANG
