2013/14 冬季 未來影片節來囉!

我們的粉絲一定有發現我們並沒有舉行去年底的秋季影展(是的,9/10/11 稱之為秋季)這幾天這麼冷,也是我們醞釀出冬季影展的時刻囉 :) 2013/14 的冬季場非常令人期待,2/22,在這麼濕冷的天,就跟好友們窩在一起看電影吧 。

這次的場地還是老地方, Insomnia Cafe (師大 睡不著 咖啡廳), 一個非常有文藝氣息,放鬆的好地方。最多可以容納40-45個人(我們的上一場就幾乎坐滿)這次我們提早了許多時間準備,就是希望給大家一個更好的體驗,更順的流程,設備也更乖更聽話(哈哈)

活動頁面請看我們的 Facebook  我們將在這個頁面通知大家確切的時間,也有地點資訊可以參考。
(一直有Follow我們的好朋友們或許會發現,這是我第一次嘗試翻譯中文片名。其實是因為我覺得以往雖然直接用英文名字保持原汁原味,卻讓不太懂片名的朋友們無法體會片名跟短片之間強烈的關係,還望大家滿意囉)

2013 台北夏季場 粉絲觀後感-{ The Pirate of Love }

有在Follow我們的部落格會發現,未來短片 x 台北 不定時會邀請喜歡我們的粉絲寫一些觀後感

這次邀請 紅球,主要是她非常融入活動,找了很多資料和大家分享,

看到觀眾們能夠一起討論,分享心得,是讓我們很開心的事情 :)

 

2013 未來短片影展 / 台北夏季場 粉絲觀後感– (紅球){ The Pirate of Love }

圖片

來說說這次我最喜歡的一部短片:The Pirate of Love。在說這部片之前先聲明The Runaway的確真的很棒,因為太棒了所以我就不多說它有多好多好,讓別人去評論他吧,我來介紹The Pirate of Love這部對於台灣觀眾看似有點莫名其妙的動畫紀錄片。

 初次觀賞時被那如幻覺般流動的螢光色手繪動畫吸引,但當下沒有很確切抓住本片想表達的思想,回到家上網調查後,發現The Pirate of Love原來只是單純描述幾位歌迷對於冰島流浪歌手Daniel C.的歌的一些臆測,因為沒有人知道這位歌聲有些滄桑的真實身分為何,他們猜測他可能古怪而孤寂還愛上名叫Sherry的十三歲黑人女孩,獨自開著卡車在公路上奔馳,還作了這張The Pirate of Love的專輯來歌詠愛情等等,所以影像隨著歌詞呈現許多神秘而空靈的風格,導致不知這位歌手故事的觀眾不好理解內容實屬可惜,但在知道故事背景的情況下,卻是可以再三回味的好短片。

 

 而在影片完成且在影展撥出後,影片製作人也被Daniel C.本人連繫上了,據說歌手已經跟Sherry修成正果結婚,且很開心自己的歌曲能給世人許多想像,而他本人已不再像那首Lonely Life裡高歌”Anybody hear my cry~?”啦。多麼美好的人生呢!

 

   影片的魔力就是用影像與聲音將平凡的現實氛圍瞬間變化成有點魔幻的氣味,而且可以多人共享。這次是我第二次參加FutureShorts,與很多認識的與陌生的朋友擠在地下室共同品嘗這股脫離現實的美好,真好。

The films / 放映短片簡介 :

Bear》 2011│11min│Australia│Nash Edgerton

Edgerton, who wrote, directed and starred in “Bear”, the sequel to “Spider” (2007), centers around the main character Jack to unfold his tangled relationship and examines whether he’s learned his lesson or not. Described as a black comedy without social commentary, “Bear” is a follow up but also stands alone as it’s own piece. “Because I tend to play things fairly straight and never set things up like it’s a drama or a comedy, the audience doesn’t know what it’s going to be, and something about that really works,” said Edgerton.

Edgerton, 在2007年自編自導了”蜘蛛” Spider 這部短片,然後在2011年編導了”蜘蛛” 的續集,也就是這部”熊” 。故事中心仍舊延續主角傑克,和他繁亂糾結的感情關係,以及延續”蜘蛛”的故事,看看傑克是否有學到教訓,別再搞砸了呢?
有些人評論 Edgerton這兩部作品為黑色喜劇,
Edgerton 說 ” ‘熊’ 雖說是延續 ‘蜘蛛’ 的短片,但整個故事完整而完全能單獨分開來看; 因為我喜歡最直接的去執行事情, 所以當我在拍攝”熊” 的時候, 我沒有刻意用 戲劇的手法或是喜劇的手法去拍攝, 讓觀眾不會有既定印象的期待,而通常觀眾反而更喜歡這樣的短片”


Quadrangle1

Quadrangle》 2010│20min│USA│Amy Grappell

An examination of a four-way affair, this documentary explores the story of two “conventional” couples who swap partners and live in a group marriage in the early 1970s. Set in Long Island, New York, this domestic living experiment unravels and challenges and boundaries of social convention, marriage, monogamy and desire. “Inspired by the discovery of my father’s photographs, taken at the height of the poly-amorous affair, and in an effort to come to terms with my own past, I decided to interview my parents. The film does not propose answers and strives to remain objective. It explores two people in a certain time. It tells a story,” said Grappell.

一種實驗性的四角關係,這部紀錄片性質的短片揭露了70年代兩對”開放關係”的伴侶如何交換著另一半和在一個團體婚姻的情況下生活。 坐落在長島,紐約,這個實驗性的生活揭開和挑戰,社會習俗,婚姻,一夫一妻和慾望的界限。”我的靈感來自於受到我父親過去的照片所啟發, 在高度複雜的近似外遇關係之下,同時我也算是刻意探討自己的過去,我決定去採訪我的父母。影片沒有提出答案,並力求保持客觀。它探討了兩個人在一定的時間。它講述了一個故事“ Grappell 說。


venus

L

L’Homme Sans Tete》 2003│18min│France│Juan Solanas

Created over 4 years, Solanas’ short debut is the story of a man who lives alone, head-less, in a room overlooking a vast industrial space. Visually astounding and technically accomplished, this animated short reveals love and happiness and one man’s pursuit for romance amidst life without a head. “We’re living in a period where cinema is a product; movies are becoming more and more commercialized. Short films are one of the last real places for artistic freedom – they’re important to celebrate just for that,” said Solanas.

索拉納斯“經過4年多的製作,Solana 的出道之作是講述一個獨自生活的男人,沒有頭,在一個房間裡面對著唯一的風景是巨大廣闊的工業廠房的景色。視覺驚人的和技術上的完成,這個動畫短片揭露了一個無頭的人生裡 追求著愛情和幸福,浪漫與對生活的追求。Solana 說:  “我們生活在這樣一個電影被視為產品的時代,電影越來越商業化。 短片是藝術自由的最後一個真正的地方之一 – 即使只因為這樣短片都重要的職得我們慶祝讚美。


The Arm_filmstill_Miles Heizer_02

The Arm》 2012│9min│USA│Brie Larson, Sarah Ramos, Jessie Ennis

Directed and written by a female trio, “The Arm” tells an up-to-the minute social commentary on teen love in a time of technology. Written over the course of 3 hours on a Greyhound bus from Dallas to Austin, this short centers upon two main characters, Chance and Genevieve, who start a texting relationship only to realise they were never in a relationship at all. At Sundance this year, “The Arm” was acknowledged with a Special Jury Award for Comedic Storytelling.

Mourir Auprès De Toi

Mourir Auprès De Toi》(To Die By Your Side) 2011│6min│France│Spike Jonze & Simon Cahn

Created from 3,000 hand-cut pieces of felt, Jonze’s tragicomic stop-motion animation takes place in an old, Parisian bookshop where at night the covers come to life. It’s the story of a felt skeleton who falls in love with a beautiful and sassy vixen. Co-directed by filmmaker Simon Cahn with designs by Olympia Le-Tan, this Cannes selected short is sweet, sad, spooky and a bit whimsical. Jonze said, “A short is like a sketch. You can have an idea or a feeling and just go and do it.”

Jonze 讓這部由3000件手工切割的布料及物件組成的這部悲調的逐格動畫,在一個古老的,巴黎氛圍的書店裡發生。在這裡,所有的書籍封面在晚上都活了過來!   故事講述一具墜落的白骨骸上了一個美麗性感的女人。由 Simon Cahn共同執導與製片,並由Olympia Le-Tan擔任設計。 這部獲得戛納欽睞的短片有甜蜜,有悲傷,帶著怪異,並且有點異想天開。瓊斯說,“短片,就像是一個草圖。你可以完成它只因為一個想法或一種感覺。”

Another reason to have a good movie

Just another couple of hours, and the world slips into two kinds of weather.

On one side the sky is full of hearts, angles, might even have flowers (–and bees?) as well.

On the other side the sky can be a bit of a blur, but it doesn’t have to.

This day is ought to be for everyone. The love between lovers has been zoomed in till the tiny details, so that roses and chocolate can be as expensive as a main course from Michelin three star restaurant.

One time during the sweetest day in a year (that is Christmas, at least it is to me) we were chatting about holidays, and when talked about the holiday of tomorrow, finally we all agree that it shouldn’t just be a celebration for lovers, it should be a day that praises love – between family members, parents, brothers and sisters, friends… And the most important part – the love between you and yourself. We all know if you don’t love or take care of yourself, then it’s not easy for you to have a healthy love for someone else. Plus, “you” are the only one you can never get away from! Don’t you think that it is worth to love yourself a little more?

So “A day praising love” —

That is the reason why I try to avoid a big heart made of roses in the picture for tomorrow because rose has been recognized as a symbol of love but sometimes in a very narrow way – just the love of couples. That’s what all the commercials told us.

On the other hand, movies are loved by almost everyone, and no matter whether you have a plan for tomorrow or not, a movie can always take you to a celebration – whether it’s about love, praying or eating.

{ When the planes hit the twin towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge — they were all messages of love. }  — Love Actually

May you all have a day full of LOVE.

情人節快樂

Happy Valentine's Day
