故事梗概 Synopsis

重现记录了死亡焦虑、创伤记忆、疼痛、爱痕、淤青及印记的碎片。它也是一个关于将痛苦转化为愉悦与治愈的故事——重新浮现以得到治愈。它讲述了如何将无形的记忆实体化,重现为可见的印记。这些印记或许是暂时的,或许是永久的。一种巴塔耶式的情色体验将通过强烈的视觉亲密感与声音记忆的拉远而激荡。

Resurface is a work that documents the fragmentation of death anxiety, traumatic memories, pain, love marks, bruises, and inscription. It is also a work about transformation and healing, transforming the pain to be pleasurable. Resurface in order to heal. It is about the experience of physicalization of the intangible memories and allows them to re-surface as visible marks, be it temporary or permanent. Through the intense closeness of the visual and distanced memories of the voice, the erotic oscillates.

导演阐述 Director Statement

该片的灵感最初来源于史蒂芬·西恩博格2002年导演的电影《秘书》,其中有一段关于伤痛的台词让我印象尤为深刻:“是因为有时内在的伤痛必须要浮于表面,让你看见内在伤痛的证据才能知道你真正的活着吗?然后,当你看着伤口愈合时,它让人感到抚慰。”于是,我收集了许多关于伤口、爱痕、淤青、刺青等身体印记的证据,将它们通过个人经验视角的自述呈现出来。受到劳拉·马克斯“触感视觉理论”的影响,我想透过一系列极端、令人窒息的大特写,呈现出一种切身的触感体验,但同时保有让人能够呼吸的、纯听觉的空间。除此之外,该片的文本创作很大程度受到了乔治·巴塔耶及三岛由纪夫的启发,尤其是他们作品中“僭越”的部分,这也是我对于酷儿理论的兴趣点所在:什么才是所谓的“常态”,以及“僭越”的意义所在。

This short film was originally inspired by Steven Sheinberg’s 2002 film Secretary, a dialogue from which stuck in my head for a long time; “Is it that sometimes the pain inside has to come to the surface and when you see evidence of the pain inside, you finally know you’re really here? Then, when you watch the wound heal, it’s comforting.” I collected the evidence of different kinds of body marks, wounds, love marks, bruises, tattoos etc., and used an autobiographical narrative to present it. Influenced by Laura U. Marks’ “haptic visuality”, I used a series of extreme close-ups to create a tactile experience, but also kept a spacious, pure auditory space for the audience. The writing for this short film is largely inspired by Georges Bataille and Yukio Mishima, specifically the “transgression” in their work. This carries through my interest in exploring queer theories as well – what is the so-called “norm”, and what “transgression” does in this context.
