住在海外的大家,是否很想念台灣呢?
大家不孤單!根據台灣內政部統計,目前在台灣居住的外僑人數差不多有76萬人,在海外的台灣僑民有74萬人。
為了更貼近「人生百味」,這次的選片,我們選了「初心」這部片。本片一路跟著名廚江振誠,從新加坡結束米其林二星的餐廳Andre,一起回到台灣的餐廳Raw。電影裡也有講述他在法國追尋夢想的過程,江振誠一路打拼,最後跟著「初心」回到台灣、回饋故鄉。我相信旅居海外的大家一定會很有共鳴!
各位台灣的影迷們:你們還有很多同伴跟你一起在海外打拼~你不孤單!波士頓台灣影展的大家,更歡迎你一同來看電影~如果你還沒有看過「初心」,歡迎10/2一起來AMC看電影!

🎫 購票資訊:
Are you away from home? Do you miss Taiwan just like us?
Don’t feel lonely! Based on the statistics from the Ministry of the Interior in Taiwan, there are approximately 760,000 non-citizens living in Taiwan and approximately 740,000 Taiwanese citizens living abroad at the moment.
We selected the film “André and His Olive Tree” this year to reflect the theme of Bittersweet. The storyline follows the world-renowned chef André Chiang from closing Restaurant André, a 2 Michelin Star restaurant, in Singapore to opening RAW in Taiwan. The film depicts moments of his journey in France to fight for his dream. Through endless perseverance, André followed his inner voice and true dedication to return to Taiwan. We believe many of us can resonate with the determination required to live away from home and work tirelessly towards what we believe in.
To all our fellow Taiwanese audience, you are not alone! TFFB is delighted to be joining and welcoming you to the community. We look forward to seeing you at AMC on October 2nd to watch “André and His Olive Tree”!

Taiwan Film Festival of Boston to host in October on the big screen



BOSTON, Mass. -- Aug. 09, 2021 -- Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB), a nonprofit organization that emphasizes connection and dialogue through films, will be hosting this year’s festival “Bittersweet” on the big screen over two days in October. The six movies to be screened over the first weekend in October (2nd and 3rd) are: My Missing Valentine (消失的情人節), Heavy Craving (大餓), André & His Olive Tree (初心), Turning 18 (未來無恙), Dear Tenant (親愛的房客), and The Great Buddha+ (大佛普拉斯). To kick off the festival, My Missing Valentine (winner of 5 Golden Horse Awards, including Best Original Screenplay), a romantic comedy, explores the mystery of her disappearing Valentine’s day and reminds us to revisit our past moments even if it seems insignificant. Heavy Craving (winner of 4 awards), explores the subject of self and social identity though the story of an overweight woman and her struggle to lose weight - how should one balance the choice between control or to indulge? André & His Olive Tree, closes the first day of the festival with the documentary about Chef André Chiang’s decision to close his two Michelin star “Restaurant André” and shows us to the courage to start over in what you believe in. Turning 18 kicks off the second day of the festival with the story about two girls’ struggle growing up from disadvantaged families, asking if we persevere through the imperfection, can we find happiness? Dear Tenant (winner of 3 Golden Horse Awards) tells the story of the tenant who takes care of the son and mother to honor his late partner before he was accused of murder of the mother when she suddenly passes. This film inspires us to see the courageous pursuit of love even if they are misunderstood, blamed, or attacked. To close out the festival, The Great Buddha + (winner of 4 Golden Horse Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography) is a dark comedy that presents its characters and their identities through perspectives in monochrome and color, contrasting the bitterness of the lower class against the excess and abundance of the upper class. While last year the festival went virtual, this year the festival is back on the big screen at AMC Boston Common 19. To encourage vaccination and to increase safety for festival attendees, a discount is available for those who are vaccinated and all participants must wear masks throughout the event. This event is subject to changes based on any updates from local, state, and federal mandates. About Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB) Founded in 2019, the nonprofit organization TFFB, run by volunteers around the world, is bringing Taiwanese stories and films to North America, with an emphasis on connection and dialogue. The carefully curated films are shown to new audiences to create conversation between the films, filmmakers, critics, and the audience, while promoting cultural connection between communities in Taiwan, North America, and the world.

東奧剛結束,恰好台灣有這第一部大河劇《斯卡羅》熱點。固然大投資大卡司大部頭作品的歷史新詮有相當可觀之處,這星期六不妨在學校開學前來一片又勵志、又好看、又有溫度、也講原住民族的素人小品劇情片。可在固定24小時以HD畫質欣賞電影之外,我們還邀請到《親愛的房客》鄭有傑及《巴克力藍的夏天》勒嘎·舒米出席WebEx談他們這部被花蓮石梯坪阿美族人復育稻米的故事啓發而聯合導演的《太陽的孩子》,探討價值與認同。影片除了獲得金馬獎"最佳電影原創歌曲",也入圍最佳新演員(女主角

邀請參與接下來雙向影藝會社的焦點主題「臺灣原住民族探索」系列活動計劃,一起來思古論今,更加認識台灣。紀錄片方面會先集中在台灣原聲童聲合唱團相關的幾部音樂歌唱及玉山生態紀錄片(布農族),以及幾位廿世紀末紀錄片製作先鋒,包括Bauki Angaw潘朝成(噶瑪蘭族),Mayaw Biho馬躍·比吼(阿美族),Umin Howa楊明輝(太魯閣族) 等人的作品,以及更新近的豐富精彩片子,如《拉流斗霸》(泰雅族)及《阿查依蘭的呼喚》(排灣族)。劇情片方面除了一直無法如願完成的《阿莉芙》(排灣族)外,還有今年終於獲得授權的鄭有傑導演基於勒嘎.舒米導演的真實故事《海稻米的願望》紀錄片發展而共同導演的《太陽的孩子》(阿美族),以及磋商中更多可能性。歡迎轉傳給可能有興趣的朋友,一起預覽、選片、決議;意者請私訊Email ckhuang@yours.com fb https://m.me/TWTheatre 以便寄發活動資訊輸入及影片清單連結等好物。因其中有些片子的版權開銷較高,所以也歡迎隨緣捐助。

東奧剛結束,記得1996前後這段〈老人飲酒歌〉的插曲嗎?主角郭英男+郭秀珠的馬蘭吟唱隊,與61年前為台灣拿下第一面奧運獎牌的楊傳廣,和這次東奧舉重金牌郭婞淳,他們有一個共同點,就是家鄉都出自台東阿美族馬蘭部落。先來再聽一次這首樸真的〈老人飲酒歌〉https://youtu.be/1g-Q6GPsMII ,謝謝Evangeline Dai精心製作的英文Slideshow,更謝謝她上週特別撥空寫了連結中這篇中文版解説(其中列出本屆台灣選手中與原住民族的關聯)所帶出的回顧與反思 https://www.facebook.com/TWTheatre/posts/909417646320217 。星期六放映《太陽的孩子》中負責配樂的舒米恩會唱出新世紀的版本。談到早年台灣運動賽事也可參考台影新聞片第一次東奧賽前十項全能金牌呼聲最高楊傳廣(漢名;阿美語:Maysang Kalimud;英語:C.K.

A Brimful of Asha
Opening Night: March 9th @7:30 PM ET
On Demand: March 10th-22nd

Written and Performed by Ravi Jain and Asha Jain | 82 MIN 
Tickets: FREE-$100

With sold-out runs across the world, A Brimful of Asha is a critically acclaimed hit and an instant favorite with audiences everywhere. Real-life mother and son, Asha and Ravi Jain, share the stage and tell this true (and very Canadian) story of generational and cultural clash. When Ravi takes a trip to India, his parents decide it's the perfect time to introduce him to potential brides. Ravi isn't sold on the idea of getting married—at least not yet—but Asha panics that time is running out. Full of laughs and heartache, this delightful family tale perfectly illustrates how, though both parents and children want the best future possible, they often can’t agree on the way forward. As Asha explains to her son, “You don’t get to choose your family, why should you choose your wife?”

March 9th:  LIVE POST-SHOW CONVERSATION
Following the 7:30 pm premiere, Ravi and Asha Jain will join moderator David Howse in a live conversation and Q&A about the making of the show. This conversation will be ASL interpreted and will be recorded and available on-demand along with the show through Monday, March 22nd.
The recorded conversation will have captions.

Greetings from Taiwan Film Festival of Boston (TFFB)! Thank you very much for supporting the 2020 Taiwan Film Festival. Your generous support empowers us to keep moving forward with a new format of TFFB during these challenging times

You and your loved ones are cordially invited to join our December virtual screening and forum. To celebrate the closing of 2020 Taiwan Film Festival of Boston, TFFB will be screening two films -- "Millets Back Home" (2013) and "Missing Johnny" (2017). “Millets Back Home” was directed by Director Sayun Simung. The film  portrays the everyday lives of the Tayal people, an indigenous people of Taiwan, stringing together the stories of three families with the unifying thread of millet (“trakis” in the Tayal language). Our second film is going to be "Missing Johnny," which garnered several nominations and awards in the Golden Horse Award and Taipei Film Festival Award. This film is directed by Huang Xi and executive produced by Hou Hsiao-hsien, who just won the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Golden Horse Award.  "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.

 

For the post-screening forum with director Huang Xi, we’ve invited Sally Wu as the moderator to discuss the film. Sally is an award-winning film director whose documentary "Good Daughter" was nominated for Best Documentary Award by the 2019 Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival. The forum will be open for questions from the audience, so if you have any questions or thoughts you want to share about the movie or with the director, make sure not to miss the forum!

"Millets Back Home" - Dec 4 (Fri) (EST) - Dec 6 (Sun) (EST) all day

*****************************************************************
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!

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.

九月,#波士頓台灣影展 真摯推薦—2019台北電影節影帝小戽斗的最後一部劇情片《老大人》

#小戽斗,本名歐藏喜,於1947年出生於台南,年輕時播演了台語廣播劇,後來進入戲劇圈,參與了一百多部電影的拍攝,也在許多電視劇裡有著精湛的演出。他憑藉著電視劇《#阿爸》和《#再見夏天》獲得 #金鐘獎 的入圍肯定,去年也因電影《#老大人》而獲得 #台北電影節 的影帝殊榮。

小戽斗曾表示:「從小到大,什麼角色都體驗過,人生已經很豐富。」波士頓台灣影展希望透過他的最後一部劇情長片,向這位經歷多樣的影帝致敬,欣賞他人生最後一哩路的深刻演繹。

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

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)
