about

The rich, colorful score by Lida Zhang skillfully combines eastern and western influences. The full orchestra is features solos from traditional Chinese instruments. Also included are excerpts from traditional Chinese instrumental music. Noted film composer Howard Shore (The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Crash, etc.) served as musical consultant on the soundtrack.

Released by Sony Pictures Classics, it stars Jared Harris (whose credits include Happiness, Dead Man, I Shot Andy Warhol, Natural Born Killers and How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog), and one of China's best known young actors, Xia Yu (Best Actor, 1994 Venice Film Festival for In the Heat of the Sun), along with a strong cast of Chinese actors.

Shadow Magic is directed, co-written and produced by New York based Chinese-American filmmaker Ann Hu (Dream and Memory), whose background of growing up during the Cultural Revolution drew her to the story of cultures coming together. Her immersion in both worlds greatly influenced her approach to storytelling. Filmed and recorded in China, this movie is also notable as the first collaboration between film studios in Taiwan and mainland China.
