故事梗概Synopsis:

一部关于自慰器的纪录片。

这里是东京都内某公寓的一间房间。这间房间里不断地传出“奇怪”的噪音。一名男子拿着雕刻刀正在雕刻一块绿色的石蜡。他是日本为数不多的自慰器造型师。他作出的自慰器的质感,与男子的性器官非常接近。他说:“这是人类身体的一部分”。

我心中产生了一个疑问。自慰器是男子性器官的代替品吗?自慰器是为什么而存在?为了满足男子的支配欲?为了方便女子自慰?

一部围绕着平时不经常被谈论到的自慰器的世界展开的纪录片如今堂堂正正的完成了。

从“制作人与使用人各自的心声”以及“从自慰器的角度看到的男女”取材而得。

A documentary film about vibrators.

Here, we can hear ‘queer’ sounds at a room in Tokyo, Japan. A man is carving a piece of green paraffin. He is the only-a-few vibrator maker in Japan. The texture of his vibrators is very close to the real genitals. He says, “it’s a part of human body.”

A question comes to my mind. Is the vibrator a replacement of the genitals? What du the vibrators exist for? Is it for fulfilling the man’s domination? Is it made for the women’s masturbation?

People rarely talk about vibrators in their daily life. But now, a documentary on the world of vibrators is produced.

The theme of this documentary based on ‘the voices from the maker and the user’ and ‘the man and woman seen from the vibrators’ view’.

导演阐述Director’s Statement:

(总的来说)

日本的关西酷儿影展上也放映了这部电影。但是,这部作品并没有指向性别少数人群。这部作品只是单纯的为了表现日本社会的男女差异,从头到尾贯彻了男女二元论。所以自然收到了很多来自Gay群体的批评。因此,此次作为日本的代表,我也是鼓足了勇气决定这次的上映。不过,从战前开始就在支配者高度经济成长期的日本的人们脑中根深蒂固的家父长制,与新世代女性所倡导的作为人类的“普通”,这两者之间的鸿沟却很有着墨的价值。这类关于独善其身的掌权者们应该怎样和少数人群共存的问题是无论在中国还是日本都不得不重视的问题。

(Frankly speaking)

Fortunately, ‘Switching’ was screened at ‘Kansai Queer Film Festival’(Japan) in 2011. However, I did not refer to ‘LGBT people’ on this film. It refers only to the diversity of the gender between heterosexual men and women (sex dualism) in Japanese society. So I received a lot of criticisms from the gay group, and I’ve spent a hard time to make up my mind to join the Beijing Queer Film Festival this time. However, I believe that you could find how noticeable is the distance between the patriarchy which has been deeply set up in the Japanese people’s mind especially since the pre WWII periods and those ‘ordinary life’ which the female group is proposing now. In other words, those kinds of problems such as ‘how can the relationship between the majority group and the minority group be?” need to be argued either in Japan or China.
