SPOTLIGHT

波士頓台灣影展選片指南 

剖白|夢想Open to the dreams 

影片推薦:《後勁》、《紅盒子》

Recommendation: Late Life: The Chien-Ming Wang Story& Father

為了夢想,你願意做出多少犧牲?

 

一位台灣之光,一位備受肯定的布袋戲國寶大師,面臨著逐漸失去舞台的人生後半場。

導演紀錄他們不起眼的生命後台,如何在困頓中仍懷抱生命中的夢想,堅持到底。

 

Chien-Ming Wang, a former Taiwanese player for the New York Yankees, was once the pride of Taiwan. Chen Hsi-Huang is a master puppeteer who is called Taiwan’s national treasure. The directors record the backstage of their lives, and bring inspiration to the audience through Wang and Chen’stireless dedication to their craft.

告白|青春Dialogue on Youth 

影片推薦:《疾風魅影-黑貓中隊》、《我們的青春在台灣》

Recommendation: Lost Black Cats 35th Squadron& Our Youth in Taiwan

兩部紀錄片在同一年發行,表面上沒有太大的關聯,卻可以一窺台灣當下社會氛圍的前因後果。

 

兩片分別為影展開幕和閉幕,希望讓相隔四十年的兩代青年,共同對話,一起見證台灣社會從自我犧牲為最高榮譽的冷戰年代,如何能轉變為以人權和公民倡議為訴求的開放社會。

 

Two documentaries released in 2018 both shed light stories of youth in Taiwan, and together blend visions of social value. The two films show how the two generations, 40 years apart, both are passionate to serve their nation but experience totally different youths across Taiwan, China, and the U.S. The films witness how social values have progressed in Taiwan: from self-sacrifice as the highest honor, to devoted advocacy for civic and human rights.    

明白|慈悲Reconciliation with compassion 

影片推薦:《那個靜默的陽光午後》、《看不見的台灣》

Recommendation:The Silent Teacher& A Journey with Invisible Friends

透過會說話的神仙和不會說話的大體老師。兩部紀錄片向影展觀眾揭示了台灣社會面對死亡和轉化歷史傷痕的慈悲能量。

 

Through the invisible spirits and the silent teacher, these two documentaries reveal a society with spiritual wealth, nourished by Daoist and Buddhist traditions which are able to reconcile with compassion the loss of death and historical trauma.
