The extended Cheng family, which, like Aberdeen harbor's Chinese namesake, represents today's "Little Hong Kong" and its myriad of contradictions between traditions and modernity; superstitions and materialism; family and individuality.

Aberdeen is a 2014 Hong Kong drama film written and directed by Pang Ho-cheung and starring Louis Koo, Eric Tsang, Miriam Yeung and Gigi Leung . Pang revealed in various interviews that the film will differ from his previous comedies Vulgaria and SDU, in that it explores the family dynamics in a typical Hong Kong family. The film was released on 8 May 2014. 97 min. Unrated. Cantonese with English Subtitles.

Sponsored by the Confucius Institute and Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at U-M, Electric Shadows: 2015 Contemporary Chinese Film Series will feature six popular Chinese films released in 2014 and 2015.
