故事梗概Synopsis:

Guy和Henry 两个互相爱慕的男人,为达“一生承诺”毅然由香港远道到加拿大温哥华注册结婚。在香港后殖民地时代,中国传统家庭的意识形态下,二人如何透过婚姻,体现双方家人对自己建立家庭的期望?在相对开放的加拿大成婚,西方思想又对新人造成了什么影响?

纪录片导演翁志文跨越性向视点,并访问不同人士,包括香港平机会主席林焕光,探讨本地同性婚姻法例的问题。

Can two people form a family solely for the sake of love? Guy and Henry, a couple deeply in love, had willingly travelled all the way from Hong Kong to Vancouver, Canada in order to get married, when such marriage is not even recognized legally in their hometown. Why did they made such a big effort to do this? What is the true meaning of marriage?

Under the mentality of Chinese families in a post-colonial society like Hong Kong and through their marriage, how did the couple realize their family members’ hope regarding their union? As the couple got married in a relatively open society like Canada, how are the newlyweds influenced by the western society’s mentality and its marriage regulations?

翁志文,生于香港九龙,祖籍广东省潮州市。1997年香港回归中国;1998年赴北京电影学院,修读导演系硕士,于2002年顺利合格毕业。2003年开始从事于香港电影及电视台工作。2006及2008年两获香港艺术发展局资助拍摄独立电影《呼吸之间》及《故梦.寻源》。2011年执导中日港合作电影《青菜的暑假》,同年开始拍摄《异路同途》的拍摄工作。

导演阐述Director’s Statement:

与《异路同途》男主角之一Henry的认识,是透过北影的台湾同学,来港旅游时介绍。作为直人的我,若不是这种机缘,我想应该不会和Henry结识,更遑论此片的诞生。所以,在建构影片的主题,便以情与缘作为主要脉络。我不想镜头以直人猎奇的眼光观察他们,希望用平实,客观的手法,表现一对情人怎样在「香港结婚」所面对的问题。

As a heterosexual, I never thought of making any gay friends through my Taiwanese classmate at the Beijing Film Academy, even less shooting a documentary on their marriage. From a factual angle, I chose to focus subjectively on their love and family relations rather than their sexual orientation.
