*****************************************************************
Although this year’s Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB) is having to take place virtually, we’ve still felt the warm enthusiasm and support of our audiences. Since August, we’ve screened at least one film per month for audiences to enjoy and experience the diversity and beauty of Taiwanese cinema. This December, TFFB has chosen two films, “Millets Back Home” (2013) and “Missing Johnny” (2017), to bring 2020’s TFFB series, “Lost and Found,” to a satisfying close.
Director Sayun Simung captures the everyday lives of the Tayal people, an indigenous people of Taiwan, in the documentary “Millets Back Home,” stringing together the stories of three families with the unifying thread of millet (“trakis” in the Tayal language). The documentary brings to light the pressing issues indigenous people face today: the shift in farming patterns, the migration of indigenous youth, and the need for preserving and restoring traditional culture. With this film, Sayun also explores self-identity in connection with indigenous identity.
The drama film “Missing Johnny” explores the lives of three people living in contemporary Taipei, where through the serendipitous crossing of paths within the mesh of city life, we find moments of connection and beauty. The film features scenes of movement and of warmth and coldness within Taipei, evoking a sense of both vibrancy and loss through human connection.
For the post-screening forum, we’ve invited Huang Xi, director of “Missing Johnny,” to join us in discussing the film. With documentary director Sally Wu (“The Good Daughter”, 2019) as our moderator, they will touch on topics such as the loneliness of moving, human interaction both behind the camera and in everyday life, artistic analysis of the film, and interesting trivia.

🎞 About the film
Millets Back Home (好久不見德拉奇, 2013)
Director: Sayun Simung|72 min|Color|Documentary|Mandarin, Tayal|ENG Sub
2015 Yamagata International Film Festival
2013 Native Spirit Film Festival
2013 Biindigaate Indigenous Film Festival - Closing Film
Through the director’s perspective and voiceover narration, we follow three family stories: Yaki (“Grandma” in Tayal) reminiscences about the community warmth in her once self-sufficient village as she attempts to revive the cultivation of millet. Sulu is a high school student who is about to study in the city, but on graduation day, a misunderstanding brings tension between him and his father. In the end, a millet dish melts all the bitterness. Hui-Juan, newly married into the Sqoyaw village, learns to cook salted meat with millet in hope of recapturing the indigenous flavor of traditional Tayal cooking taught by her father-in-law. In the meantime, she worries about her children’s future.
These three independent stories are connected through the growing and cooking of millet, or “Trakis” in Tayal. As shown, their lives bring to light the pressing issues Indigenous people face today: the shift in farming patterns, the coming and going of younger group members, and the need for preserving and restoring traditional culture.

Missing Johnny (強尼凱克, 2017)
Director: Huang Xi|104 min|Color|Narrative Feature |Mandarin |ENG Sub
2018 New York Asian Film Festival
2017 Busan International Film Festival
2017 Taipei Film Awards - Best Supporting Actor, Best New Talent, Best Screenplay, Award for Outstanding Artistic Contribution (Cinematography)
Qi moves from Hong Kong to Taipei alone, with only her pet parrot for company. There, she continually receives phone calls asking for a mysterious man called Johnny. Over time, she bonds with her landlady’s autistic son and a local builder who works for the landlady and lives in his car as he rebuilds his life, the three brought together by an incident when Qi’s parrots escape.
“Missing” in the film’s title evokes both actual loss and the pathos of thinking of someone or something. As the audience pieces together the story, so are the characters trying to make themselves whole. Featuring scenes of movement throughout Taipei City, and an ambient electronic soundtrack from acclaimed composer Lim Giong, the film recalls Millennium Mambo (2001) for a new generation, giving the audience a sense of both vibrancy and loss permeating the city — and moments of beauty, when souls collide and connect serendipitously.

因應新冠肺炎疫情,第二屆的影展我們採用了線上放映的方式,雖然無法和各位影迷們面對面的互動,但仍舊受到各位的熱情支持和鼓勵。從八月到現在,每個月我們都挑出了至少一部電影,讓大家在家也能和我們一起細細品味台灣電影的多元和精彩。年末,波士頓台灣影展特別挑選出兩部電影《好久不見德拉奇》和《強尼凱克》帶你走向這趟『2020 波士頓台灣影展—失物招領』旅程的尾聲。
透過導演莎韻西孟的鏡頭,《好久不見德拉奇》講述著泰雅家庭的日常生活,以小米(德拉奇, Trakis)串起三個家庭的故事,也帶出原住民族部落當今面臨的議題:部落農作型態的更迭、部落青年的離散與返鄉、傳統文化的復振與保存,同時也是導演莎韻找回自我認同和部落連結的作品。而劇情片《強尼凱克》則透過三個居住在都會台北的男女交織而成,在他們各自人生中出現的轉變,好似把他們帶入充滿茫然和摸索的迷霧中,卻又因『強尼』和『凱克』的契機,捕捉著交會中專屬於台北的溫度。就像是在現代社會中,為生活奔波的我們的縮影,總會因為小而美好的事物和不同的人交會,轉瞬又為各自的人生前進。
這次的導演座談我們將邀請到閉幕片《強尼凱克》的導演黃熙,和紀錄片《阿紫》的導演吳郁瑩擔任住持人。從他們的角度了解到離鄉背井的孤獨迷惘,鏡頭下人與人相處間的微妙,交錯時交織的溫度,當然還有拍攝中的故事。以『失物招領』為主題的這屆影展,希望透過這兩部作品讓大家拾起生活中的美好,在找尋自我的過程中,都不忘能珍惜交錯時的吉光片羽。

🎞 電影簡介
《好久不見德拉奇》
導演: 莎韻西孟 | 2013|72 分鐘|彩色|紀錄片|中文、泰雅語發音|英文字幕
泰雅族語稱小米為「德拉奇」(Trakis),本片透過導演視角與口述旁白,交互講述三個家庭的日常。一位泰雅族Yaki(泰雅族語「奶奶」之意)復種傳統作物小米,進而回憶過去部落自給自足的生活與互助的人情味;從小在部落長大的孩子屬路,國中畢業須離開部落到平地的台中市區念書,卻在畢業典禮那天,因莫名的人際誤會,讓父子關係陷入冷戰。最後在餐桌上,藉由小米料理化解父子心結;從外地嫁來環山部落的惠娟,努力製作小米醃肉,希望傳承公公泰雅食物的味道,並且心繫著孩子們的未來。
三個看似無交集的敘事軸線,透過小米的栽種與烹煮,帶出原住民族部落當今面臨的議題:部落農作型態的更迭、部落青年的離散與返鄉、傳統文化的復振與保存。曾對自我認同感到焦慮的導演,透過《尋找德拉奇》(2011)、《愛,部落》(2012)以及《好久不見德拉奇》(2013)的「回家三部曲」,詮釋了找尋認同的歷程。

《強尼凱克》
導演:黃熙| 2017|104 分鐘|彩色|劇情片|中文、英文、廣東話發音|英文字幕
獨自在台北生活的徐子淇(瑞瑪席丹 飾)摸索著未來生存的方向,平靜生活的同時持續陷在與男友不安定的關係。她經常接到要找「強尼」的電話,這些打錯了的電話與她的黑頭凱克鸚鵡們是生活的陪伴與調劑。
住在樓下的房東太太的兒子李立(黃遠 飾),每日朗讀報章雜誌訓練專注,可是某日發現徐子淇偷帶鸚鵡上捷運後,規律的生活卻因此亂了序。
裝修工人張以風(柯宇綸 飾)接了李立家附近的裝修,但他的寶貝老爺車拋錨了,頓覺失去依靠。那日早晨,張以風、李立、徐子淇三人因為鸚鵡被兜在一起,交織出人與人之間交錯的片刻美好,捕捉那交會中專屬於台北的溫度與吉光片羽。

Run for Dream: Every ending is a new beginning.

Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB) proudly enters its second year in 2020. Undeterred by the pandemic, we are shifting to an online virtual format this year, allowing audiences to continue enjoying these films from the comfort of their homes. Starting in August, we are screening at least one film per month for the rest of the year, with each screening accompanied by a forum discussion featuring special guests. Forums are a great opportunity for audiences to ask questions and interact with panelists, so for those interested in delving into each film’s cultural background, shooting process, and thematic analysis, make sure not to miss them!

The theme of the 2020 film series is “Lost and Found”, a topic which we hope will inspire dialogue with audiences through the films. In a year as volatile as 2020, we believe many of us have taken pause to self-reflect as our old rhythms of life have been disrupted. We hope that, through the stories that these films tell, we can reflect on what we have cherished and lost, what we are mending and reconciling, and what treasures still await us to be discovered.

In August and September, we screened Foolish Bride, Naive Bridegroom (Hsin Chi, 1967) and the short film “Like Father, Like Daughter” (Chris Leong, 2019), as well as the film Dad’s Suit (Hung Po-Hao, 2019). Through various perspectives, these films take us on an exploration of interpersonal relationships, as well as dialogue and reconciliation among family. In our upcoming event, we want to explore a different relationship — that with the self.

This month, we are screening Run for Dream (2019), a documentary on Taiwanese ultramarathoner Tommy Chen in his endeavor across barren deserts, formidable mountains, and desolate ice fields to become Asian champion of the 4 Deserts Ultramarathon Series. The passage towards achieving our dreams is challenging, and in Chen’s path of running, he has faced unfathomable loneliness. On this journey we face many obstacles, we feel dejected and lost, and even start to question ourselves. Yet on this journey, we can examine ourselves again and again, ask ourselves and listen to our inner voice, and find a way to continue.

In addition, the weekend of the screening coincides with the National Day of Taiwan (10/10), and is a perfect way to celebrate National Day through this inspiring story of a figure considered a Pride of Taiwan!

For the post-screening forum, we’re excited to be joined by the director Run for Dream, Huang Mau-Sen, as our special guest, with fellow sports enthusiast Dr. Hsien-Chung Tseng moderating the discussion. We will touch on topics such as the production team’s treacherous experience filming in extreme locations, and our losses and discoveries in the path to achieving our dreams. In addition, achieving a goal can feel like an ending, yet can also turn into a new beginning — so how can we find a continuation of our life journey beyond individual aspirations? We will open the floor for audience questions at the end of the forum, so don’t miss this great opportunity to interact with director Huang!

TFFB sincerely invites you to join us in our “Lost and Found” journey, and set off on a run towards our dreams!
Tommy Chen (
陳彥博) is a well-known Taiwan ultramarathoner. Chen was the first and youngest Asian athlete finishing the 7 continents & 8 stage extreme marathons in 2013. He is also the first man from Asia to win 4 Deserts Grand Slam Champion in 2016. Chen was selected as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Persons of Taiwan in 2013.

Director Huang Mau-Sen (黃茂森 aka 瓜導) worked at Taiwan Ogilvy Commercial for eight years as a producer, account executive, and senior copywriter. This unique experience fostered his skills in expressing emotions and intensifying visual effects by image. Huang treats his films like exquisitely crafted works of art. He always deliberates over each scene, and integrates his feelings into them in order to create an intriguing aesthetic effect. A dedicated director, he has a deep understanding of how to use imagery to vividly express deep meanings. Huang also once worked as the art director in the film Drop Me A Cat (2002) as an amateur, for which he won a Golden Horse Award for Best Art Direction.

Moderator Dr. Hsien-Chung Tseng (曾賢中) was born in Hualien, Taiwan, and has lived in Cambridge since he came to the US in 2006. He obtained both his Ph.D. and B.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and National Taiwan University (NTU, Taiwan), respectively. Dr. Tseng was also a postdoctoral associate at MIT. While at MIT, Dr. Tseng served as the President of MIT ROCSA (Republic of China Student Association) in 2007-2008, initiating and executing cultural, academic and athletic events to help unify Taiwanese graduate students at MIT. Later, he joined Manus Bio, a biotech startup spun out of MIT, in early 2012 as the company’s first employee and is currently Head of Operations, Bioprocess, and Manufacturing. Outside of work, he enjoys any activity that takes him outside, including running (10 marathons), hiking, playing tennis, biking, traveling, etc.

出發:每一次的終點,其實是另外一個起點。

波士頓台灣影展今年邁入第二屆,因應新冠肺炎疫情的影響,這次影展採線上放映的方式。從八月到年底,每個月我們都會挑出至少一部電影,讓大家在家裡舒適的沙發上,和我們一同細細品味每部電影。同時也會有特邀嘉賓加入我們的電影座談和觀眾線上互動,想知道各種拍攝趣聞、電影背景、主題深度討論的朋友們,絕對不容錯過!

今年影展以『失物招領』為主題,希望透過電影的視角和觀眾探討不同議題。尤其是在充滿變化的2020,被打亂的生活節奏迫使我們停下進行思考。我們希望觀眾和我們能以電影中的人生為出發,檢視自己曾經遺失的美好 、修復心中的傷痕,並整裝待發繼續挖掘生命中的更多的珍寶。
在八月和九月,我們分別放映了辛奇導演的《三八新娘憨女婿》、新銳導演梁秀紅的短片《前世情人的情人》還有洪伯豪導演的《老大人》。這幾部片以不同的觀點切入,帶我們探討人與人之間的議題,還有和家人間的對話與和解,接下來的活動,我們將為您開啟一段自己與自己的對話旅程。

這個十月,我們將線上放映以超馬選手陳彥博為主角的紀錄片一《出發》,看彥博在漫沙飛舞的沙漠、壯闊的高山、寂冷的冰原紀錄著他十年來的熱血奮鬥,並最終完成夢想,成為第一位在一年內拿下四大極地總冠軍的亞洲選手。追逐夢想的路是艱難的,而在奔跑的路上是孤獨的。我們在這段路上跌跌撞撞,在挫敗中迷失,甚至懷疑自己,但是我們也能在這段過程中一次又一次的審視自己,和自己對話,聽聽內心的聲音,並做出調整找回自己的路。此外,放映的週末適逢中華民國一〇九年國慶日,我們也將用這部記錄著台灣之光故事的電影,和大家一起歡慶國慶!

在線上映後座談,我們邀請了一樣熱愛戶外運動的曾賢中擔任主持人,為我們訪問此片的導演黃茂森,看他們在極地拍攝的過程中,遇到了什麼驚險難忘的經歷,在追逐夢想中的得與失,而在終於完成夢想後,看似到了終點,其實又是人生的另外一個起點,我又將如何找到完成夢想過後的下一步?座談最後將開放給觀眾朋友提問,絕對不要錯過這次難得和導演對話的機會!波士頓台灣影展誠摯地邀請您到我們的失物招領處,找回你曾經的夢想,並為夢想出發!

8/24波士頓台灣電影影展

九月活動暖身專訪:賴佩霞老師談「老大人」

林佳芳 訪問彙整

TFFB 九月電影和特別來賓賴佩霞

波士頓台灣電影影展(TFFB)九月十一日至十三日間要播映的是抱回台北電影展四項大獎的「老大人」。它描述老年情感和生活,和因照護問題而產生的世代衝突。電影情節平淡而寫實,不僅貼近觀眾們的現實,更直接觸碰了大家心裡不敢或不想面對的人生面向。九月十三日TFFB舉行的映後座談,將由在華府照護中心擔任資深社工的陳曉瑩女士,和知名歌手心靈諮商老師賴佩霞,帶領觀眾一起深入研討「老大人」。

活動開跑前,賴佩霞老師特別接受了TFFB工作小組的連線專訪,和大家談談照護者和被照護者之間的情感糾結、溝通對話、以及心理癒療的可能。

賴佩霞的歌手身份是大家較為熟悉的,然而她在諮商、心靈輔導的領域中,其實已經默默地耕耘多年。她回憶兒時最親暱的玩伴是房東罹患小兒麻痺的孩子。六歲時曾天真地發願要和對方結婚,為的是保證彼此有人照顧。這段友誼讓賴佩霞深感「服務別人是一種莫大的快樂。」長大後進入五光十色、極度商業化的演藝圈,歷盡千帆後又加入孫越先生更生團契的行列,一起探視台灣各處的監獄和少年觀護所。為了提供受刑人更確實的協助,賴佩霞一腳踏進了專業諮商、心靈輔導的世界。

面對老大人,先同理自己

賴佩霞如何看「老大人」呢?她深覺人們心中各有崇高的道德標準,執行起來卻常常因有落差而感到痛苦。以孝順父母為例,照顧過程若心生怨懟,負面的情緒往往不被正視。或者,自覺表現搭不上標準的時候,「最可怕的就是自我摧殘,自恨、或者覺得自己很糟糕」。這樣的糾結讓人陷入兩難,既無法全然照顧好父母,也沒有把自己照顧好。賴佩霞認為,要先做的便是「同理自己」,不再自我責怪。她強調這和抱怨或自滿不同,而是「能夠說服得了自己:我真的盡力了,在我能力範圍之內,我已經做得很好。」能夠安定自己、面對自己需求之後,再去理解對方的需求。若各方都能清楚自己所需,就能避免許多後來可能的衝突。賴佩霞在陪伴臨終的母親時,深感慶幸自己涉獵不少心理方面的知識。此時的她,已有能力處理自己的不安和焦慮,能夠同理自己「這不是一件容易的事,不只是要面對母親的病痛,也要認識自己情緒的波折」。她也特別強調不要等到最後,要勇敢一點,越早聆聽、整理好和家人的關係越好。整理好後這條路上還會有親友團隊,有輔導導師(mentor),有社會資源可以幫忙,和你一起走過。這是她認為最想要和觀眾分享的事。

平靜後再談溝通

「老大人」中每個角色,包含身體逐漸頹傾的父親金茂、工作家庭兩頭燒的兒子益正和女兒玉珍,都是心疼彼此的。然而對於越是在意的人,表達上越顯得窘迫。在現面對家人不可逆的衰老與失去等等難以乘載的巨大壓力之下,要如何能讓溝通更順利一點呢?賴佩霞說「這問題有兩件事,一件是處理自己的情緒,另外一件是溝通。」將這兩項事情分開來,分得越清楚,越能得心應手。心理壓力的處理,可找親友傾訴,或者找專業諮商會會得到不同的收穫。在她個人經驗來說,她所求助的諮商師由於能跳脫華人文化的傳統約束,扭轉了她思維上的糾結和框架。她認為這有益於解除傳統加諸於她身上的桎梏,至於是否要遵循傳統孝道,抑或另尋出路,至少都是自己做出的選擇。梳理好自己的情緒需求是首要步驟,平靜下來後才有能力進行良好的溝通。

樂觀看待失去

「老大人」在平溪拍攝,放入了許多放天燈的影像。天燈滿載著希望升天,燭火熄滅了以後就掉下來成為待處理的垃圾。這個意象似乎和金茂逐漸失能的人生做出對照,好像身體像是失去了功能,就不再被需要亦不再受重視,接下來唯有成為有待他人處理的負擔。失能後,能如何看待生命和自己的價值呢?死亡來臨的時候,真實情況總是未知。儘管如此,在賴佩霞自承天真的想像中,臨終前逐漸失智、失能似乎是個不錯的自然機制。在照護者眼裡看來雖然備感心酸,但像她這麼熱愛生命的人,臨走一定所有都想緊緊掌握。若有天然機制迫使她慢慢放下一切,她樂觀嘆道:「what a blessing」。她並呼籲年紀漸大的朋友們,在有能力決策時就做好安排,比如說財務管理、照顧好身體,好好地「活著」。面對衰老失能,採取循序漸進、慢慢放手的態度。以自身為例,賴佩霞有兩位近而立之年的女兒們,近年她調整角度,改以朋友般的對等地位交流,希望脫離傳統親子責任的框架,輕鬆地和彼此相處。「她們不需要我,反而是開心的。」解除了自己對兒女的責任,她探向他處,繼續尋找是否仍有自己能做出貢獻的地方,並從中獲取滋養。能把自己最好的一面,呈現給周遭的人,「這樣就夠了」。

TFFB和賴老師的首次對話,嘗試以不同的觀點來看「老大人」這部影片以及人生的難題。想知道賴佩霞還有什麼處世之道和觀眾分享嗎?TFFB誠摯邀請您觀賞我們的九月選片「老大人」,並且不要錯過賴佩霞和有超級實務經驗的陳曉瑩女士在九月十三日晚上的座談會做更深入的對話。

This September, #TFFB is honored to present “Dad’s Suit,” a film starring the late Sió-hòo-táu (小戽斗) in his final performance, which earned him the Best Actor at the 2019 Taipei Film Awards. We want to celebrate his contributions to the growth of the Taiwanese film industry in his prolific career of over fifty years. Get your ticket now: https://rb.gy/xjvjym

Sió-hòo-táu was born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1947. He began his acting career in the 60s, and has appeared in more than one hundred of Taiwanese films and TV series. He said that playing so many different characters has made his life rich. He also received accolades at the Golden Bell Awards for his work in “Abba (Father)” and “Farewell Summer.” In 2019, his finally won Best Actor at the Taipei Film Awards for “Dad’s Suit."

To honor Sió-hòo-táu, #TaiwanFilmFestivalofBoston is presenting his last work, “Dad’s Suit,” in our September screening & forum. In the film, he played a father grappling with the changes brought on by aging—from living alone in rural Pingxi to being sent to a nursing home by his children, from making a suit to attend his grandson’s wedding to using this suit for his funeral. The film is underlaid by familial affection, but is also telling of the trials of old age. Please join us to appreciate his late work and seasoned acting.

*********************************************************************

Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB) proudly enters its second year in 2020. Undeterred by the pandemic, we are shifting to an online virtual format this year, allowing audiences to continue enjoying these films from the comfort of their homes. Starting in August, we are screening one film per month for the rest of the year, with each screening accompanied by a forum discussion featuring special guests. Forums are a great opportunity for audiences to ask questions and interact with panelists, so for those interested in delving into each film’s cultural background, shooting process, and thematic analysis, make sure not to miss them!

The theme of the 2020 film series is “Lost and Found”, a topic which we hope will inspire dialogue with audiences through the films. In a year as volatile as 2020, we believe many of us have taken pause to self-reflect as our old rhythms of life have been disrupted. We hope that, through the stories that these films tell, we can reflect on what we have cherished and lost, what we are mending and reconciling, and what treasures still await us to be discovered.

In August, we kicked off TFFB’s 2020 “Lost and Found” series on Taiwanese Father’s Day weekend, with screenings of Foolish Bride, Naive Bridegroom (1967), a black-and-white film in tâi-gí (Taiwanese language) by legendary director Hsin Chi, and the short film “Like Father, Like Daughter” (2019), directed by Chris Leong Siew Hong, whose short “Blind Mouth” (2017) was nominated for the Golden Horse Award. The juxtaposition of the two films, both comedic in tone, draws parallels across generations in the universal pursuit of love. In addition to uncovering interesting stories during filming, our forum discussion with director Leong also delved into topics like the freedom to love, marriage equality, and communication and reconciliation among family.

In September, we will screen Dad’s Suit (老大人, 2019), directed by Hung Po-Hao and starring Hsiao Hou Tao, King Jieh-Wen, Phoebe Huang, Yen Tsao, and Sandra Li. The film portrays an old man, Chin-Mao, as he grapples with the fear and helplessness of a body weakening with age, and the conflicted and resentful feelings in his children sparked by their shouldering his care. The film astutely depicts the conflicts between family members, and its underlying representation of familial love is universally resonant. This is also the last performance by seasoned actor Hsiao Hou Tao before his passing earlier this year.

The director of Dad’s Suit, Hung Po-Hao, has been involved in numerous Taiwanese productions, including Kano, Seediq Bale, Winds of September, and Au Revoir Taipei. Hung’s directorial works, including “My Graduation Travel” and Wake Up 2, have been nominated at the Golden Horse Awards, the Taipei Film Festival, and the Golden Harvest Awards, among others.

For the forum discussion, we have invited Tammy Lai (賴佩霞), Taiwanese actress, singer, writer, and counselor, as our special guest, and Washington DC-based social worker Hsiao-Ying Chen (陳曉瑩) as the moderator. Tammy and Hsiao-Ying plan to touch on topics such as finding a balance between caregivers and care receivers, healthy communication between family members, and how to face the aging process together. We hope that through the film and discussion, audiences will have gained a bit more insight to inform choices in their own lives. This September, we invite you to join the next chapter of our “Lost and Found” journey!

2020波士頓台灣影展 - 失物招領』— 九月篇 

波士頓台灣影展今年邁入第二屆,因應新冠肺炎疫情的影響,這次影展採線上放映的方式。從八月到年底,每個月我們都會挑出一部電影,讓大家在家裡舒適的沙發上,和我們一同細細品味每部電影。同時也會有特邀嘉賓加入我們的電影座談和觀眾線上互動,想知道各種拍攝趣聞、電影背景、主題深度討論的朋友們,絕對不容錯過!

今年影展以『失物招領』為主題,希望透過電影的視角和觀眾探討不同議題。尤其是在充滿變化的2020,被打亂的生活節奏迫使我們停下進行思考。我們希望觀眾和我們能以電影中的人生為出發,檢視自己曾經遺失的美好 、修復心中的傷痕,並整裝待發繼續挖掘生命中的更多的珍寶。
在八月,台灣父親節時,我們以傳奇導演辛奇的黑白台語片『三八新娘憨女婿』和金馬獎得主新銳導演梁秀紅的短片『前世情人的情人』作為開幕。以詼諧的角度,讓觀眾一窺不同時代的戀愛模式,映後座談,除了和梁秀紅導演聊到拍攝趣事,也探討了自由戀愛,婚姻平權,和家人間的溝通與和解。

九月,我們將放映洪伯豪導演的電影『老大人』,由演員小戽斗、喜翔、黃嘉千、曹晏豪、李友珊領銜主演。故事講述年邁的老人金茂(小戽斗 飾),在面對日漸衰老的身體所產生的無力感與恐慌,看著子女為了老年照護所產生的怨懟還有矛盾,各種親情間的糾結被刻畫的淋漓盡致,整部片充滿著濃濃的親情,讓你我都能產生共鳴。而此片也是資深影帝小戽斗的人生最後代表作。

洪伯豪導演曾經參與過多部台灣電影的拍攝,包括『Kano』、『賽德克巴萊』、『九降風』、『一頁台北』等作品,執導過『畢業旅行』、『麻醉風暴2』,並入圍金馬獎、台北電影節、金穗獎等多個影展獎項。

我們也將請到賴佩霞老師(知名歌手、作家、心靈導師)和主持人小瑩(DC專業社工)加入我們的座談,和觀眾一起聊聊照顧者和被找顧者間要如何找出一個平衡點,親子和家人間要如何溝通,在面對年邁的親人,我們要如何一起面對人生的關卡。希望透過此片和大家一起關懷老人照護的議題,在這些每個人每個家都在面對的抉擇中,如何做出自己的決定。請到波士頓台灣影展的失物招領處,找回你心中的平衡,點燃心中那盞天燈的火種、重燃希望、讓自己受困的靈魂自在飛翔。

We sincerely invite all movie and rice dumpling lovers to attend this event and appreciated these yummy Sio Bah-tsàngs with us and Director Chen!

[📖

Dragon Boat Festival (Chinese: 端午節) is approaching! Celebrated by many Asian countries and Chinese communities, it falls on May 5th of the lunar calendar, which is June 25th this year. Traditionally, the fifth lunar month was considered an unlucky month as it marked the beginning of natural disasters and illnesses expected to continue throughout the summer. In order to get rid of these misfortunes, people would place herbs in front of their houses in hopes that the aromas could help drive away pests and prevent the spreading of vector-borne diseases. The herbs were also believed to be capable of deterring evil spirits with their sword-like shape.

 

The origins of Dragon Boat Festival come from efforts to commemorate the death of Qu Yuan (Chinese: 屈原). Qu was a poet and well-loved minister in the state of Chu in ancient China. However, Qu was accused of treason and banished by his king due to opposing an alliance with a powerful state. Years later, his home state of Chu was conquered by this alliance. Qu, distraught from the conquest drowned himself in a river. When people heard of the news, they immediately rowed their boats out to the river to try and save him but were too late. To ensure that Qus body wouldnt get eaten by fish in the river, people also packed and dropped rice dumplings (Chinese: 粽子, zongzi; Taiwanese: 燒肉粽, Sio Bah-tsàng) into the river hoping that the fish would eat the rice dumplings instead. Packing and eating rice dumplings, as well as dragon boat racing thus became the main rituals to celebrate Dragon Boat Festival.

Co-host: Harvard GSAS Taiwan Student Association (HTSA)
