Of Shadows shows the creative world of shadow theatre and players 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. A touching portrait of a travelling theatre company in the northwest of China, where the age-old art of the shadow play is still kept alive in tiny improvised village theatres.
