放映 / SCREENINGS

We regularly organize screenings at our Studio and other venues, both showing our own and others' films made by or on youth. The screenings are friendly events allowing people to mingle, discuss, have a drink and get to know people's stories from different regions of the world.

 

我們定期在工作室和各種場地舉辦電影展映,當中包括我們拍攝的影片以及其他導演拍攝關於青年的影片。我們的放映會輕鬆而開放,觀眾可以在放映后交流討論,一起分享來自世界各地不同的故事。

Directed and performed by Kiwi Chan 陳家蔚, along with musicians Linda Tong, Les Fong and Aishan, performer Frieda Luk 陸肇欣, visuals by Wing Chan 陳穎. THY LAB hosted a Butoh multimedia performance. Statement: This is a show about "we" reconnect to the world by releasing the somatic memories. "The way in is the way out." A traumatic childhood event interfere with encounters on a train heading to somewhere, somewhere in between life and death, a theatre.  A theatre, where moments are shared, so as life. In this disconnecting modern life, we desire to touch the reality, while the reality is a mist.

About Director:

Hu Tai-Li is a pioneer of ethnographic films in Taiwan. Her films received awards at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Houston International Film Festival, Taiwan International Documentary Festival and many others. Hu is currently the Director of the Institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica in Taiwan.

Returning Souls:

In the historically most famous ancestral house of the matrilineal Amis tribe in Taiwan, the carved pillars tell legends, such as the great flood, the glowing girl, the descending shaman sent by the Mother Sun, and the father-killing headhunting event. After a strong typhoon toppled the house 40 years ago, the pillars were moved to the Institute of Ethnology Museum. Recently young villagers, with assistance from female shamans, pushed the descendants and village representatives to communicate with ancestors in the pillars. They eventually brought the ancestral souls(rather than the pillars)back and began reconstructing the house.

 

Passing Through My Mother-in law's Village:

The East-West Highway was soon to be built in central Taiwan. It would pass through the village of Liu Ts'o, and many homes and rice paddies would be destroyed. The filmmaker went back to her mother-in-law's village Liu Ts'o, where she did anthropological research from 1976-78, to preserve some images of life forever. This film was shot in a natural and intimate climate. During the annual two harvests, various activities in daily life and festivals were presented in the film reflecting the villagers' attitudes towards gods, ghosts, ancestors, women, farmlands, urbanization, industrialization, reclamation and resettlement. The film maker attempted to reveal the Taiwanese way of facing drastic social changes.
