✧ Program Overview | 专题概览

We live in reality, yet we are not content with it. Since its advent, film has been offering its audience a filmic reality with fictionality and fantasy. Cinematic images, in turn, take part in the construction of individual dream, desire and sexuality. Cinema, then, blurs reality and fantasy, fiction and non-fiction. Subsequently, by reflecting and distorting our desires, it reorients our understanding of interpersonal and sexual relationships. Here, the emphasis on imagery raises questions about non-visual factors that also affect our perception of reality and sexual experience. With novel representational techniques entering the media realm trying to grasp the underrepresented, the manner in which fiction and non-fiction will evolve and continue to impact our notion of reality remains unknown.

Ahead of its time, the 2002 film Let’s Love Hong Kong offers an insight into the dynamic between imagery and reality, as well as the dilemma of modernized human interaction. Writer, director Yau Ching will join us as guest speaker to talk about her critical engagement with the issue from a perspective of gender and sexuality within the East Asian context.

✧ 专题概览 | Program Overview

我们生活在现实,但从未满足于现实。电影从诞生之初就开始向人们呈现充满虚构与幻想的世界,而影像中的叙事和表演也无时不参与着个体梦境与欲望的构建。由此,现实和影像渐趋同化,虚构与非虚构也越来越无法区分。人和人之间的关系因影像的介入发生改变,我们对“性”的理解和诠释很可能为影像主导。于此同时,在图像和现实的相互作用的语境下,我们似乎不可避免地放大了“视觉”,也边缘化了在生活和性体验中同样重要的其他身体感官。我们能否期待新技术的出现填补现实感官空缺?又将怎样迎接现实在虚构和虚拟共同作用下的新一轮发展?

电影: 《好郁》 Let’s Love HongKong | 游静  Dir. Yau Ching

Synopsis |剧情梗概

Fantasies, dreams, tears and fears of four women chasing and watching each other in post-colonial Hong Kong. They chase, seduce, resist and fantasize about each other. A Hong Kong that is as fake as real provides the perfect setting for their games, secrets, screams and tears. “Made-in-China Chan” (in Cantonese: Chan Kwok Chan) works as a stripper in cyberspace but she often has headaches. Her only solace is from a Mainlander migrant who echoes what Chan does but with a better attitude. Nicole has money and power but she depends on “Made-in-China” to play with virtually at night in order to get some sleep. Zero does not have anything but she knows what she wants and is determined to get it. Four women meet in Hong Kong somewhere in the future. How do their desires manifest themselves in this Forbidden City? From totally different backgrounds, they look like they have very different problems but do they?

Prémio De Ficção (International Critics Grand Prize For Fiction), Figueira da Foz International Film Festival, Portugal; Best New Performer Nominee, Golden Horse Film Festival, Taiwan; Invited to more than 30 film festivals

《好郁》是一个描绘未来的香港,当中的欲望、爱、科技与身体的故事。亦真亦假的颓废之城,四名实实在在的女子之间疑幻疑真的感情。当空间愈来愈少,我们愈来愈穷,科技愈来愈快,沟通愈来愈难,我们如何表达欲望与爱?Zero不断做工又转工,陈国产有口难言,Nicole只享受电脑玩伴,阿姐最知道自己要什么。四名女子之间的窥视、试探、跟踪、恋慕、情与性,互相映照间也许建构出一片已过去又未来的香港镜像?

葡萄牙费加拿霍斯电影节影评人大奖; 台湾金马奖最佳新人奖提名;获邀参加超过三十个影展。
