故事梗概 Synopsis

如果你的孩子向你出柜,会发生些什么? 《My Child》就是关于一批拥有LGBT儿女的勇敢而又鼓舞人心的父母们。他们不仅经历了接受儿女身份的困难历程,而且往前走了一大步,去向其他的LGBT家庭乃至大众分享他们的经验。影片《My Child》里七位父母向观众娓娓道来他们的故事,重新阐释了如何为人父母,何谓家庭,怎样在这般恐同、歧视跨性别者的保守社会里做一名活动人士,这一系列议题。

What happens when your child comes out to you? My Childis about a very courageous and inspiring group of mothers and fathers in Turkey who are parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals. They have not only gone through the difficult path of accepting their children for who they are, but also have taken the next step to share their experiences with other LGBT families and the public. In My Child, seven parents intimately share their experiences with the viewer as they redefine what it means to be parents, family, and activists in this conservative, homophobic, and transphobic society.

导演阐述 Director’s Statement

相较在社会运动里摸爬滚打数年的活动家们,《My Child》里的父母们只需更短的时间,就能达到相同的效果。通过分享他们的经历,感动普罗大众,他们已经将LGBT个体们由痛苦的社会边缘带到了公众议题的中心,消除了不少人的成见。这部影片里他们不仅分享了为人父母各异的心路历程,而且唤起了我们每个人心里都存有的情感:一个人如何去做真正的自己,如果令家庭和社会去接受这份真我。他们还从根本上质问了父母、家庭、活动人士的定义。

自我们筹备本片以来,土耳其已有大量LGBT人士遇害,世界其他地方也一样。从这些勇敢无畏的父母身上,我们可以学习到很多,如何与针对LGBT的歧视和暴力抗争到最后。我相信这部影片给了我们宝贵的机会。

What the parents in My Child have been able to do in a short amount of time in Turkey is something that activists struggle to do for years of political activity. By sharing their stories, by touching people’s hearts, they have brought the plight of LGBT individuals from the margins to the center of society and changed hearts and minds. In this film, they not only share their unique personal experiences of parenthood, they also address something that each of us can relate to: a person’s struggle to be who s/he really is, and to be accepted as such within the family and in the society. They also fundamentally question what it means to be a parent, a family, and also an activist.

Since we decided to make this film, scores of LGBT individuals have been killed in Turkey and around the world. In our fight to end violence and discrimination against LGBT individuals, we have a lot to learn from these courageous and inspiring parents. I believe this film gives us a chance to do that.

故事梗概 Synopsis

电影人米雷拉·范·马库斯寻找和她妻子克劳迪娅生育小孩的理想建构。除去想要孩子的强烈愿望以外,他们有担忧和疑虑。小孩不需要有一个父亲吗?小孩有两个母亲,将来会不会遭受什么危险?她们能够在一个并不完全宽容的社会中抚养小孩吗?米雷拉作为妈妈,能否像亲生母亲克劳迪娅那样对小孩有无条件的连结?

Filmmaker Mirella van Markus seeks the ideal arrangement of having a child with her wife Claudia. Despite their strong desire to have children, there are worries and doubts. Won’t the child need a father? Will their child be at risk being raised by two mothers? Can they justify raising a child in a family which society doesn’t always look upon with tolerant eyes?

米雷拉在寻找答案。她的疑问,让她接触了一些女同性恋父母、经人工授精长成的孩子、发展心理学专家、甚至那些面对想要小孩之人的顾问。米雷拉担心将来的三口之家会是什么样,或是精子捐献者将来要扮演的角色,但问题来了:她们真的能够成功怀孕吗?《我们也想要孩子》是一个个人的、充满情感的提问,两个女人分享她们的担忧,疑惑,希望以及失望。当家长,对于两个女人来说不那么容易,同样,怀孕也不是。

Mirella is searching for answers. Her quest leads her to lesbian parents, children born of artificial insemination, and a developmental psychologist; she even winds up on the sofa of an adviser who counsels people with a desire to have children. While Mirella worries about what the shape of her family will be and about the role of the donor, it stands to question whether they will succeed in getting pregnant at all. We Want Kids Toois a personal, emotional quest in which two women share their worries, doubts, hopes and disappointments. Parenthood isn’t straightforward for the two women, and neither is getting pregnant.

故事梗概 Synopsis

「子女出柜,父母入柜」,正是描述同志子女与父母表明同志身分之後,同志的爸爸、妈妈们一同承继社会歧视的真实写照。本片是一部拍摄自己与同志母亲们对话的纪录片,导演在台湾南部念书的过程中,跟随著一位在台湾同志运动组织担任的义工杨妈妈进行拍摄。透过拍摄杨妈妈与其他同志父母的生命经验分享,看见台湾的同志与其父母们,如何生存在同志的汙名下,一段段挣扎拉扯的生命在此现身。

“When the children come out, the parents come in” is a classic phrase describing the process of coming out between LGBT children and parents. Discrimination against LGBT people from society is transferred from the child to the parents. This documentary is a conversation between the director and mothers of LGBT people. When the director was studying in the south of Taiwan, he filmed the life stories of these mothers. We all lived with the stigma of LGBT and struggled under it.

导演阐述 Director’s Statement

同志身分的包袱,在华人家庭的子女与父母身上流转。有幸於就读研究所期间认识了台湾同志谘询热线,并从中得到许多助力。出柜的议题不会是拍完纪录片就结束,而是一辈子都必须面对的拉扯。

The burden of being LGBT is transferred onto parents in Chinese families. Taiwan Tongzhi Hotline Association (TTHA) gave me the power to face my family. Finishing the documentary will not cause the issue of coming out the closet to disappear. It is a lifelong issue.
