[ 哲學『』星期五@匹茲堡 ] X 我們的青春,在台灣 Our Youth in Taiwan

 

紀錄片放映暨映後導演座談 (2019/7/11 6:30 pm)

2018 金馬獎.最佳紀錄片

2018 台北電影獎.最佳紀錄片

台灣|紀錄片|116 分鐘|彩色

導演|傅榆

 

七月份哲學星期五@匹茲堡將帶來《我們的青春,在台灣》的電影放映活動。《青春》導演傅榆在金馬獎得獎時致詞:「我們可能把錯誤的期待投射在別人身上,這有可能發生在人對人,也有可能發生在國家對國家。我希望有一天,我們的國家可以被當作一個真正獨立的個體來看待,這是我身為一個台灣人最大的願望。」哲學星期五@匹茲堡很榮幸能邀請到導演傅榆,在電影放映後與匹茲堡的鄉親會面、分享她的創作歷程與想法。歡迎匹茲堡地區的朋友們、帶著你的家人、邀請你的鄰居、同事、好友們一起共襄盛舉!

 

《我們的青春,在台灣》從台灣觀點、政治角度切入,近距離觀看大時代下的年輕人,在實踐民主時真實的處境,進而思考,自身與民主之間的關係。告別青春、走向成熟的故事,總是發生在世界各地的年輕生命裡。本片主角們的青春夢想,是藉由反抗體制,追求一個更好的國家,卻在動盪的兩岸關係裡,變成歷史的一部份。本片紀錄一個反共的台灣學運明星、一個喜愛台灣的中國學生、一個政治狂熱的台灣紀錄片工作者,他們之間理應充滿矛盾,卻在社會運動裡找到合作的可能性。在一場台灣24 年來最大型的社會運動之後,他們從接近成功的巔峰,逐漸墜入失望的谷底,曾經堅持的理想,還有可能延續嗎?

【哲學星期五@台中】─「樂生出代誌 人權倒退嚕」2019/06/28(五)19:00

 

樂生保留自救會榮譽會長李添培曾苦笑著對著官員說過:「對我們痲瘋病人而言,人權不是天上掉下來的。」

 

樂生院民過去十幾年來,雖然手腳不便,仍拖著病軀、騎著代步車堅定上街抗議,捍衛家園、守護台灣重要文化資產。在十多年抗爭的努力下,院民爭取到了經費來為院區進行重建,然而重建的過程中,卻排除院民的實質參與。更可惡的是,我們發現許多標案的設計,從一開始就不打算以「日後院民如何使用」來進行設計。曾經以為爭取到的權益,如今與院民已漸行漸遠。只要有最後一位阿公阿嬤繼續努力,樂生保留自救會就不會放棄。

近期天候不穩,加上考量阿公阿嬤身體因素,樂生保留自救會、青年樂生聯盟成員決定以身體作院民的代步車,去將他們的故事,告訴更多台灣人——莫忘樂生,莫忘台灣有這位處邊緣角落的痲瘋病院過去的苦難,以及現在的危機。

 

他們要重返各地,跟老朋友說,樂生出代誌了;跟新朋友說,台灣的人權指標案例樂生院,仍然有105名院民,沒有受到公平的對待、平等的尊重。唯有台灣真誠面對過去的錯誤、並做出尊重樂生院民的院區重建規劃,我們才能更有自信地說出這腳下這片土地的名字,更抬頭挺胸地說,台灣重視民主、人權與文化。歡迎大家共同參與本周與「青年樂生聯盟」合作的「樂生出代誌 人權倒退嚕」紀錄片放映與系列講座。

【哲學「」星期五@紐約】紐約台灣設計講座 2019/06/29 19:00-21:00

 

** This talk is part of The Wedding Banquet - A Celebration of Same-Sex Marriage in Taiwan and Beyond Exhibition**

More show detail: https://www.taiwanbanquet.org/

 

全球化時代,#地域間文化 間的碰撞與 不同 #價值文化 之間激盪看似已經成為常態,但是文化與文化之間的「深談」卻非簡單的言語對話就好,而是需要去「體驗」與「轉譯」。語言文化的轉譯有翻譯員,而文化之間透過圖像來轉化則是藝術家與設計師最主要的任務。紐約華爾街的「無懼女孩」代表階級文化衝突的意象;布魯克林區的街頭藝術展現嬉皮文化的放蕩不羈。

 

此次活動我們邀請三位知名臺裔設計師,與我們對談在他們在各自藝術與設計領域中,如

何將台灣文化轉化到他們作品中,透過作品與紐約的在地多元文化做對話,產生作品與觀賞者之間的連結,讓更多人瞭解台灣也讓更多人理解文化多樣性。

Design transformation -

Visual Language from Taiwan to New York

In the globalization era, the conflictions and interactions within geographically cultures and ideologies are usual and reasonable. The communication within cultures is not only through language but also acting and feelings. Interestingly, language translators transfer meaning through words; art designers transfer the culture through imagines. For instance, the fearless girls showed the social class confliction at Wall Street in Manhattan, the street art and graffiti represented the hippie culture in Brooklyn.

 

We are glad to invite three famous Taiwanese art designers sharing their

creativity and how they have the “dialogue between Taiwan culture and American culture,” transferring the meaning of Taiwan, through their design.
