Electric Shadows is a 2004 Chinese film directed by Xiao Jiang and starring Yu Xia, Haibin Li, Yijing Zhang, Zhongyang Qi, and Zhengjia Wang. During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Mao Dabing (Yu) is a delivery man living in a small village. When Mao has an accident on his bicycle, he meets Ling-Ling, a fellow movie buff and easily excitable attractive young woman. Ling-Ling is arrested for the accident, but not before giving her keys to Mao, asking him to feed her fish while she is in jail. Mao then becomes fascinated by Ling Ling's life: he reads her diary, he looks through old photos, and learns the family history. Mao then delves into Ling-Ling's desire to be an actress, and how she grew up believing that her father was a famous actor. Electric Shadows won the Swarovski Trophy for Best Director at the Asian First Film Festival.
