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!

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.
