超前佈署美好人生的必修電影課
Advanced Compulsory Cinema Class for a Wonderful Life

銜命策展「2020勞動影像嘉年華」,我一直在想該如何藉由電影,提醒觀眾超前佈署一個更美好的人生?今年除新冠疫情擾亂我們原本規律的生活,根據七月內政部最新統計資料顯示,台灣除「高齡化現象已難以逆轉」外,上半年台灣人口遷移數也出現異常,加上出生人數將再探1950年中華民國在台灣以來新低,進而使勞工們最擔心的「養不起的時代」加速來臨,並將自今年起正式登場。未來銀髮退休人士將面臨比過去更艱鉅挑戰,正確提前規劃及調整心態,會是因應未來變化的不二法門。因此,我們決定結合世界勞工現況與國際電影,透過影像呈現最能讓人醍醐灌頂的勞動新文化,形塑出勞動者的未來夢想國度。

To program 2020 Labourer Carnival, I keep thinking about how to plan a wonderful life through cinema for the audience. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, our original life is heavily influenced. According to the statistics from our government in July, besides the irreversible population ageing situation, population migration is unusual as well. With the lowest number of births since 1950, what makes labour concerned about the higher dependency ratio era soon approaching, even starting from this year.  Starting to adjust states of minds for the retired population and have an advanced plan would be an essential issue to face the change for the future. Thus, we hope to combine the labourers’ issues all over the world. 

在現今社會裡,「退休」已非銀髮勞工的唯一選擇。根據美國最新統計,65歲銀髮族有超過五分之一的人士,仍在職場上奉獻他們豐沛的歷練與人生閱歷,工作態度也以「不須退休」、「不想退休」的樂觀進取,替代了原本「不能退休」的被動無奈。「2020勞動影像嘉年華」的第一個主題「大齡多樣人生」,就以9部國際電影,呈現「退休」的多種選項,其中更包括有英國大導演肯洛區執導的開幕片《抱歉我們錯過你了》、日本大導演是枝裕和勇奪坎城金棕櫚獎的《小偷家族》,法國「新浪潮電影之母」安妮華達與青年攝影師JR共創藝術巔峰的《最酷的旅伴》,以及奧地利大師麥可漢內克勇奪奧斯卡獎的《愛‧慕》等電影佳作。

Nowadays, “retirement “ is not the only option for elder labourers. According to statistics conducted in the United States, more than 20% of the elder population is still in the working field. Rather than being forced to leave the workforce, they are able to pursue their careers.  “Various Lifestyles of Elders in the Workforce” is the first programme in the 2020 Labourer Carnival. Nine international films are selected to present the different paths toward retirement, including the opening film, Sorry We Missed You, directed by the renowned British director, Ken Loach. The Palme d'Or winner, Manbiki Kazoku's Shoplifters is also selected in the programme. Additionally, we will screen Faces Places, directed by the pioneer for French New Wave film movement, Agnès Varda. Haneke’s Amour is in this category as well.

「中高年級人生課題」是「2020勞動影像嘉年華」的第二個重要主題,我們以6部國際電影、帶出中高齡勞工難以迴避的人生課題。這個單元影帝后雲集,除精彩詮釋了退休老師、超市警衛、咖啡店女侍、房仲業者等勞工人生,精湛的演技示範更是令人目不暇給。而其中兩部國片:小戽斗的獲獎作《老大人》與鄭人碩的國際成名作《上岸的魚》,更不約而同探討了老年照護的問題,在台北電影獎及多倫多等國際影展上都各有斬獲。

“Life Lessons for the Middle-aged and Elder” is our second programme, where we select six international films. Many award-winning actors and actresses play the movies in this category. Their performances present the issues we must face. Two Taiwanese films, Dad's Suit and A Fish Out of Water, are included in the category. Both films discuss the issue of eldercare, have collected Taipei Film Awards, and were presented in Toronto International Film Festival, etc.

「現代勞動群像」則是這次影展最具廣泛性社會議題的單元,我們在此規劃了8部影片,包括2部失業話題片、2部金馬獲獎片、2部獲獎紀錄片,以及2部與攸關姊妹兄弟情感的感人電影,希望能讓觀眾從中看到自己、家人以及周遭友人的身影,除增進彼此了解,並能找到更好的溝通、工作與生活的方式。「2020勞動影像嘉年華」將於10月8日至22日期間於光點華山電影館及喜樂時代影城南港店兩座戲院登場,希望這些深刻關注勞工現況的電影,能作為我們提前規劃未來的必修課程。我們到時見!

“Modern Labourers” covers a wide range of social issues. We will screen 8 films, including 2 films about the issue of unemployment, 2 Golden Horse Awards winners, 2 award-winning documentaries, and 2 movies regarding the relationships between siblings. We hope the audience can see and understand the importance of working in different fields. 2020 Labourer Carnival will begin from 8th to 22nd October at SPOT Huashan Cinema and Century Asia Theatre Nangang. We will see you there!
