导演阐述 Director Statement

剧本名字来源于唐代诗人杜牧的《赠别》:“春风十里扬州路,卷上珠帘总不如。”该诗表达了诗人对相好的妓女的惜别之情。《十里春风》虽然讲述的是两个女人之间的爱情故事,但不仅仅只是一部同性恋影片,更重要的是表现人际关系中的利益诉求和信念冲突造成的离别。

影片以新现实主义电影风格为创作基础,采用实景拍摄,从美术角度保证了视觉的真实性。用非职业演员与职业演员相结合的方式,运用方言体现乡土气息。摄影方面参考苏联导演安德烈塔可夫斯基的导演风格,以场面的精心调度和长镜头捕捉演员的完整表演段落,精准简洁地表达人物关系和推动情节发展,按自然时间叙事并以开放式结局收尾,完整营造一种真实的生活状态和时间痕迹。运用实物与非实物的寓言性、多义性构成电影世界中的精神维度,充分显现生活的意义。同时也借鉴了日本导演小津安二郎的电影风格, 即“省略叙事法”,剧本中的故事往往发生在某个事件之后,注重呈现人们处理该事件的态度与行动。在故事结尾,通过纪录片的形式打破电影的虚拟与真实生活的界限,给观众带来哲学思考。

The name of the script comes from “Farewell” by Mu Du, a poet of the Tang Dynasty: “The spring breeze is ten miles away from Yangzhou Road, and it is always better to roll up the bead curtain.” The poem expresses the poet’s feeling of parting with the prostitute. Although Love Like Spring Breeze tells the love story between two women, it is not only a gay film, but more importantly, it shows the separation caused by the interest demands and belief conflicts in interpersonal relationships.

Based on the new realism film style, the film adopts live shooting to ensure the visual authenticity from the perspective of art. The combination of non-professional actors and professional actors was used to reflect the local flavor.

故事梗概 Synopsis

一个被传统性别观念束缚的女子,一个因为担心被歧视而隐藏真实自我的男人,一个面对挚爱产生容貌焦虑的女孩,三个年轻人在音乐和舞蹈的感召下,重新点燃内心的火焰。他们鼓起勇气,打破世俗的枷锁,不再畏惧他人的中伤,活出真实的自己。舞会上,他们散发着自信的魅力。在这里,每个人都是最耀眼的星。

They are inspired by music and dance to manifest their true desires. They muster the courage to break the shackles of the world. They are no longer afraid of the vilification of others and start to live their true selves. At the ball, they are confident and charismatic. Everyone can be the brightest star here.

Focusing on exploring personal stylized narrative, Zhu is passionate about film art and believes that it is easier to stick to an ideal than to give up on it.

导演阐述 Director Statement

在音乐和舞蹈的交融之下,短片讲述了三个角色的故事:被周遭环境压抑住外放灵魂的白领;不愿被性别束缚、想要摆脱传统目光的小提琴手;拒绝面容焦虑,勇敢去表达爱的学生。这三位主角无一不在向外界强烈地传达着:请做内心真正的自己! 这部音乐短片的标题取自于同名歌曲,《This is me》。这就是“我”,“我”从来不觉得性别只有两种,或者人应该活成某种样子,活着性取向会受到限制……“我”就是独立绽放的个体,“我”生来不同。正如Vogue文化代表的理念:“如果你觉得这个‘球’(ball)不欢迎你,那就是这个‘球’(ball)的问题,因为‘舞厅’(ballroom)欢迎所有人。” 短片最后,三位主角挣脱外界束缚,做回真正的自己,三条人物线交织并汇聚在舞厅里,这也是我最想在短片中表达的——不要害怕改变,就算与主流背道而驰。在这样的一个空间里,每个灵魂都是值得被尊重的。

In the collision of music and dance, the film portrays three parallel characters: a white collar whose soul is suppressed by the surrounding environment; a violinist who does not want to be trapped by gender roles and hope to break the traditional norms; and a student who relieve her appearance and becomes confident to embrace love. These three characters are all communicating a strong message to the word: Please be your true self! The short music film is named after the song, “This is me”. This is me, the one who never feels that there are only two genders, that life should fit in a template, and that sexual orientation is limited… Everyone is born different and is special and unique in their own way. Just as Voguing culture wants to express—“If you feel that this ball doesn’t welcome you, that’s the problem of this ball, because the ballroom welcomes everyone.” At the end of the short film, the three main characters break free from the outside world and become their true selves. With the development of the three characters in the short film, I would love to express that please don’t be afraid to change, even if it goes against the mainstream. In the space I created in the film, every soul is worthy of respect.

导演阐述 Director Statement

当我们谈论性的时候,我们应该谈什么?短片以音乐剧的叙事形式,聚焦在艾滋病检测这一特定的时间节点,在医院这个单一空间里讲述了几个身份和背景各异的检测者对待检测结果的反应。短片围绕着主线里男主角因为一次“不安全性行为”而到医院里进行艾滋病检测,在检查、等待、出结果的过程中,主角作为一个观察者,他眼中的别的个体和家庭在面对相同的一件事情的不同反应,从而对自己的经历的反思和领悟。虽然主线是通过男主角的行动展开,短片的第二段着重强调的是群像描写。除了艾滋病科学防疫的主题外,想通过群像表达的是,这件事可能会发生在每一个普通的人、普通的家庭中。短片中还穿插着一些黑幕背景的画面,代表着网络空间里的发表评论的路人,甚至是网络暴力的键盘侠,想要借这样的叙事方式影射性教育的缺失,以及健康知识传播的重要性。在短片的最后,医生的歌词“虽然这种病被称作艾滋,但生命不会因此而停止。”希望听完这首歌,看完这部短片,观众能够提高防疫意识的同时,消除偏见和歧视,引发一些思考。

When we talk about sex, what exactly are we talking about? This short film takes the form of musical, focusing on HIV screening, showing the different reactions people from different background had when they waited for the result for HIV screening in the hospital. The main character of this film, a young man, went to the hospital after risky sex. When he was waiting for the result, he observed other individuals and families in similar situations hence reflected upon his own experiences. Although the story mainly focuses on the young man, the second part of the film portraits the people came for HIV screening in the hospital as a group. This film tries not only to advocate the scientific prevention of AIDS, but also to raise the public awareness that what happened to the main character can happen to any individual or family, that lack of sex education has an impact on the society, and that it is important to spread knowledge concerning disease prevention. At the end of the film, the doctor said to her patient:” Even though the disease is called AIDS, life won’t end today.” We hope that the film can raise public awareness as well as eliminate discrimination.

导演阐述 Director Statement

本⽚在题材上,有着中国古代特有的志异⾊彩,其次内核上也 有与时俱进的⼥性主义设置。 两个⼥主⼈公分别过着不⼀样的⽣活,闺阁⼩姐拥有⽗权 制度下不由⾃主的“美丽”,⽽蛇妖则是⾃然与野性以及不被驯化 的代表。两者身份在碰撞时,与中国古代特有的⽂化背景产⽣了 奇妙的碰撞,⼆⼈之间的感情超脱于传统的“爱情”。

In terms of theme, this film has the unique color of folktale in ancient China. Secondly, the core also has the feminist setting of keeping pace with the times. The two heroines live different lives. The lady of the boudoir has the involuntary “beauty” under the patriarchal system, and the snake girl is the representative of nature and wildness and not being domesticated. When the two identities collide, they also have a wonderful collision with the unique cultural background

导演介绍 Director Biography

艾⼒⽛尔·吐尔逊,维吾尔族,在重庆⼤学美视电影学院就读纪录⽚创作⽅向研究⽣,热衷于创作关注边缘群体⾝份认同的影像。也是个扫街摄影师,但不满⾜于静态影像的表达,正在形成⾃⼰的某种不加修饰的,强纪实的,粗糙的影像风格。

Elyar Tursun is a Uyghur and a graduate student majoring in documentary creation at Meishi Film Academy of Chongqing University. He is passionate about creating images that focus on the identity issues of marginalized groups. He is also a street sweeper, but is not satisfied with still images, and is currently developing his own kind of unadorned and rough style of images.

导演阐述 Director Statement

⼀个社会中的少数族裔在处理⾃我⾝份认同时是需要依靠外界的审视的,当这种⾃我价值遭遇到某种从未有过且负⾯的带有族群绑带式评判时,对这个独⽴个体的伤害是不可磨灭的。那么此时他能做的也就只有封闭⾃⼰,甚⾄“想象”出⼀个能够完全理解⽀持⾃⼰的“朋友”来获得⾃我认同,确定⾃⼰可以存活在这个社会当中拥有的理由和⾝份。

街拍摄影师的⾝份让这部⽚⼦的主⾓不再仅仅作为社会的旁观者,在影⽚中通过主⾓的镜头可以偷窥到他观察社会的私密视⾓,更能渗透主⾓的内⼼。本⽚⼤部分篇幅都引⽤了我个⼈真实的⽣活经历,其中对于族裔仪式的反思,对于社会中个体⾝份的疑惑,都是我经常会去思考的内容。

A minority group in a society needs to rely on the gaze from outside when dealing with its own identity issues. When the self-worth is judged negatively with ethnic ties in a way that has never been done before, the damage to the individual is indelible. Then all he/she can do is to close himself/herself off, or even ‘imagine’ a ‘friend’ who can fully understand and support him/her in order to gain self-identity and to make sure that he/she have the reason and identity to survive in this society.

The role as a street photographer allows the protagonist to move beyond being a mere observer of the society. It allows audiences to share the protagonist’s intimate perspectives on society through his camera-lens and to dig deep into protagonist’s heart. The majority of this film draws on my real-life experiences, in which I often reflect on ethnic rituals and think into the identity problems in this society.

导演阐述 Director Statement

夏⽇午后橙⻩的阳光,宿舍⾥⻛扇的噪声,⽪肤上细密的汗珠,这并不是任何猎奇的画⾯,⽽是是在成⻓中两个少年,共同分享⼀个特殊⽽⼜私密的体验。

电影中,我们着⼒在情绪和张⼒的渲染,亲密是⾃然⽽然的美好的体验,是情绪和理智的对⽴,是简单⼜单纯的瞬间。

The warm sunlight of a summer afternoon, the noise of the fans in the dorm, the sweat on the skin…. It is not any kinky or sexual image, but two teenagers sharing a special and intimate experience together as they grow up.

In this film, we try to portray the emotion and the tension. Intimacy is a natural and beautiful feeling, a dichotomy of emotion and rationality, and a pure and innocent moment.

He moved to Toronto for high school and received his education from Queen’s University (Canada) and OCAD University.

导演阐述 Director Statement

如何用有限的方式去拍一个酷儿纪录片?导演基于不存先入为主的概念,在实景拍摄过程中让镜头和主演的互动产生自然流畅的火花。这样的方法也是新纪录片运动的产物。一方面而言,酷儿或者其他LGBT身份的重要性不能忽略。另一方面而言,很多性少数群体的认同性取向只是他们生活的一部分。电影作为一种变现方式能让多角度方式来探索展酷儿群体和社会,家庭,文化等关系及苦与乐。我们不仅想展现酷儿的骄傲与不同,也同时给他们平静的日常一个写真。

这部片子没有预演,没有重现,我们完全是在两位主演的日常生活中进行捕捉。在很大程度上,影片弱化其政治性,强化人文和个人等要素例如代际关系、年轻人的人生观念、爱情和亲密关系等诸多话题。

Queer representations have transformed in the past decades or so in contemporary China. Amid a proliferating interest and production in queer visual cultures, our documentary hopes to aid, however incrementally, the understanding of queer lives in mainland China. On the one hand, queer and/or LBGT identities are a vital part of (in)forming queer experiences and cultures. On the other hand, film as a system of representation allows exploration of an array of matters closely and intimately related to sexual identities and sexualities (more broadly speaking). Our film approaches documentary through a more observational position, albeit the director/interviewer is audibly present in the work. This short documentary broaches the issues of intergenerational relations, migration, mobility, as well as desires and love.
