故事梗概

故事发生在以色列的一个宴会厅,而且正值战争最激烈的时候,亚当·魏茨曼的成人礼派对变成了一场光荣的灾难。在成年的边缘——精神崩溃的边缘——亚当朝着接受自己的性取向迈出了至关重要的一步。

导演介绍

伊莱·祖佐夫斯基在特拉维夫出生和长大,是一名导演、作家和记者。作为2021年的罗德学者候选人,他以优异的成绩毕业于哈佛大学,获得了电影制作和英国文学学士学位。在哈佛大学就读期间,他导演了多部短片和戏剧,还担任了《哈佛倡导者》(美国历史最悠久的、连续出版的大学文学杂志)的专题编辑,并获得了路易斯-苏德勒艺术奖、托马斯-T-霍普斯奖和艺术家发展奖学金等荣誉。他的短片《今夜你属于我》入选2017年戛纳电影节的短片角。他的戏剧《牛头人》赢得了2017年雅法春季艺术节的大奖。他的作品曾在波士顿艺术博物馆、美国剧目戏院和察夫塔剧院等地展出。他的原创作品和翻译作品最近发表在《国土报》、《以色列时报》和《哈佛政治评论》等刊物上。祖佐夫斯基曾是以色列最古老的周刊《Bamahane》的编辑,并两次获得卓越主编奖。

导演阐述

“生日快乐。你的十三岁很重要。也许这是你第一次公开亮相。”

——大卫·福斯特·华莱士,《永远高高在上》

《祝你好运》是一部关于成长的电影,探索了自我发现的惊奇和恐惧,是一场狂热的奥德赛,整个行动发生在一个晚上。这也是一种重新想象;虚构了(以及可能)发生在2008年6月23日的事件——根据犹太传统,2008年6月23日是我“成长为一个男人”的日子。这部电影是我在哈佛大学的毕业项目,是我试图用自己成长的痛苦来反思青少年同性恋的生活经历。通过聚焦这一犹太成人仪式,这部电影探究了一个没有出柜的男孩在异性恋和偏执的环境中长大成人意味着什么。我相信,这种公私聚会的独特性和表现性,为探索当代以色列社会中的男子气概、酷儿性和犹太性之间的联系提供了肥沃的土壤。

Synopsis

At a banquet hall in Israel, at the height of a war, Adam Weizmann’s bar mitzvah party was turned into a glorious catastrophe. On the cusp of manhood—and on the verge of a nervous breakdown—Adam takes a crucial step toward coming to terms with his sexuality.

Director Biography

Born and raised in Tel Aviv, Eli Zuzovsky is a director, writer, and journalist. A 2021 Rhodes Scholar-Elect, he graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University with a BA in Filmmaking and English Literature. At Harvard, he directed numerous short films and plays, served as the features editor of The Harvard Advocate (the oldest continuously published college literary magazine in the U.S.), and received honors like The Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts, The Thomas T. Hoopes Prize, and The Artist Development Fellowship. His short film Tonight You Belong to Me was selected for The Short Film Corner at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. His play Minotaur won the 2017 Jaffa Spring Festival. His work has been presented at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The American Repertory Theater, and Tzavta Theater, among others. His writing and translations have recently appeared in Haaretz, The Times of Israel, and The Harvard Political Review. Zuzovsky was the editor of Bamahane, Israel’s oldest weekly magazine, and won the Editor-in-Chief Award for Excellence twice.

Director’s Statement

“Happy Birthday. Your thirteenth is important. Maybe your first really public day.”

—David Foster Wallace, “Forever Overhead”

Mazel Tov is a coming-of-age film on speed exploring the wonders—and horrors—of self-discovery, a feverish odyssey whose entire action occurs over the course of a single evening. It is also a reimagining; a fictionalized account of the events that happened— and could have happened—on June 23, 2008, the day I “became a man” according to Jewish tradition. The film, which was my thesis project at Harvard, is my attempt at the reappropriation of my own growing pains as a means to meditate on the lived experiences of gay teens. By zeroing in on this Jewish rite of passage, the film inquires what it means to reach adulthood as a closeted boy against a landscape of heteronormativity and bigotry. The unique, performative nature of this public-private gathering, I believe, provides fertile ground for the exploration of the nexus of masculinity, queerness, and Jewishness in contemporary Israeli society.

一对关系失衡的父子,一个刚痛失挚爱,另一个则患有被重度污名化的疾病。他们被迫同彼此交谈,打破边线,并抚平彼此关系中的创伤。

导演介绍

凯尔·朱迈恩·弗朗西斯科通过拍摄短片学习电影制作。他拍摄了邦板牙时期的电影《咏叹调》(Aria , 2018)和 iWant 的剧集《我的单身女士》(My Single Lady , 2020),前者获得了 Gawad Pasado 的最佳制作设计奖。 他创作了短片《行踪》(Whereabouts , 2018),并在塞尔维亚萨拉敏达诺亚洲电影节和马尔托夫斯基电影节上展映。他的最新短片《边线》(Lines, 2019)获得CineSpectra电影节评审团奖,并在Cinemalaya及上海酷儿电影节、Out Film CT、美国QFilms等国际酷儿电影节上展映,同时入围 CNN 菲律宾、菲律宾电影评论家协会和拉普勒联合评选的 2020 年菲律宾最佳短片。 凯尔在 Mowelfund 电影学院和瑞奇李(Ricky Lee)编剧工作室完成了电影导演和编剧课程。

导演阐述

《边线》将 HIV 作为一个讨论话题。我想让HIV感染者的声音更响亮,尤其是那些居住在像邦板牙这样的省份的人,在这种深深植根于“不闻不问”文化下,他们对污名和歧视斗争的声音因沉默而被减弱。我认为这是一个不应被压抑的话题,而应作为一种交流的呼吁。呼吁沟通,呼吁强大的支持体系,因为它是治愈HIV的开始。除了 HIV 之外,我将讲述一对关系失衡的父子的故事,以及 HIV 自测盒上的两条线如何挽回两人间被遗忘的爱和亲情。这部电影展示了沟通如何在家庭中发挥关键作用,爱可以通过沟通来引导,而沟通本身就是爱。《边线》讲述了一个关于疾病如何将破损的家庭关系恢复正常的故事。

Synopsis

A dysfunctional father and son, one still coping from a loss, the other with a highly-stigmatized illness, are compelled to talk to one another to make ends meet and heal the wounds of their relationship.

Director Biography

Kyle Jumayne Francisco learned filmmaking through designing short films. He later on designed Kapampangan-period feature Aria (2018), which got him a Best Production Design award at Gawad Pasado, and iWant’s My Single Lady series (2020). He created his short film Whereabouts (2018) and was presented at film festivals Salamindanaw Asian Film Festival and Martovski Festival in Serbia. His latest short film Lines (2019) won Jury Prize at CineSpectra Film Festival, was presented at Cinemalaya and international queer film festivals such as Shanghai Queer Film Festival, Out Film CT and QFilms in the US, and is included in the lists of top Filipino short films of 2020 by CNN Philippines, Society of Filipino Film Reviewers, and Rappler. Kyle completed intensive film directing and scriptwriting courses under the Mowelfund Film Institute and Ricky Lee Scriptwriting Workshop. 

Director’s Statement

Gulis (Lines) treats HIV as a venue of discourse. I want to contribute to make the voices of persons living with HIV louder, with emphasis on those who reside in the provinces like Pampanga, who have been muted by the silence in their battle against stigma and discrimination rooted deeply in a culture of “let’s not talk about it”. I see it as a topic that should not be suppressed, but should serve as a call for communication. A call for communication is a call for a strong support system; and a strong support system is the start of healing. More than HIV, I will tell a story of a dysfunctional father-son relationship and how two lines of an HIV self-screen cassette bring back the once forgotten love and affection between the two. This film shows how communication plays a vital role in a family: that love can be channeled through communication, that communication itself is love. Gulis tells a story of how an illness heals a wounded relationship in a family back to its normal, functioning form.

08年南方小镇,安安和念慈是一同长大的好友。

梅雨季节到来,念慈的妈妈将接她到遥远的城市。安安将念慈的离开视为背叛,然而无力改变,不可挽留。

安安感到愤怒却也同时发现自己如此的不舍,以及滋生出隐秘的爱意,而念慈似乎也知晓了她的心意。

导演介绍

吴俊皓,成长于中国东北小镇,2011年本科毕业于浙江传媒学院电影制作专业。迷惘的青年影人,关注现实境遇中个体的精神困境,试图用影像呈现人与人难以言表的模糊情感与暧昧关系。

导演阐述

故事发生在08年的南方小镇,08年似乎是一个与许多人记忆发生瓜葛的年份,世界好像一夜之间人声鼎沸广阔起来,回望过去,那种旧的小世界突然被掀开,迷惑不知所措,缺乏归属感的知觉还在。

本片借此作为外部环境,希望去呈现青春期同性意识觉醒时的一种矛盾状态。故事起始于两位少女的离别迫近,她们一起长大,形影不离。离别的讯号,好像刺破了她们的伊甸,之前长久的安稳的日子即将一去不返。她俩的关系紧迫起来,友谊产生了裂纹。离别作为外部刺激,引发了她们情感意识、性意识的觉醒,纯真懵懂中的近似于爱情的暧昧使人不安起来。可少年时期含混的感情总是无法言明,只能别扭着消耗掉仅有的时光。这是一种独属于少年人的无助和深情。

Synopsis

In the year 2008, Ann and Nianci are good friends, growing up together in a small town in southern China.

When the plum-rain season arrives, Nianci’s mother comes and takes her to the city faraway. Ann sees the departure of her friend as betrayal, however, she could not make Nianci stay.

Angry as she is, Ann finds that she could scarcely bear the absence of Nianci, that hidden affection has developed. In the meantime, her friend seems to penetrate her feeling.

Director Biography

Wu Junhao, who grew up in a small town in northeast China, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Film Production from Zhejiang University of Media and Communication in 2011. The lost young filmmaker focuses on the spiritual dilemma of individuals and tries to present the unspeakable vague emotions and relationships with images.

Director’s Statement

The story takes place in a small southern town in 2008, a year which seems to be memorable for many people. The world seems to expand and liven up overnight. In retrospect, the confusion and lack of sense of belonging caused by the sudden loss of small world still can be evoked.

In this background, the film hopes to present a contradiction when homosexuality awakens in adolescence. The story begins with the impending departure of two young girls who grow up together and follow like a shadow. The departure seems to destroy their Eden: the lasting and stable days before will be gone forever. Their relationship becomes strained and their friendship begins to crack. Departure stimulates the awakening of their emotional consciousness and sexual consciousness; the ambiguous love in their innocence made them uneasy. Always unspeakable, teenage vague emotions can only awkwardly consume all the time they have. This is a kind of helplessness and deep emotion that only belongs to young people.

导演阐述


这是一部十几分钟的短片,在创作之初我只是想表达一种情绪,这种情绪确确实实来自于我自己——在2019年清明的时候心血来潮去了北京的一处公墓,快十年没哭的我不知为何就在那里哭了出来。而从剧本故事来讲,这是个没有强烈冲突的电影,和拍摄初衷一样希望表达情绪,剧本大致有两条线,一条是十分具体的线,小宇外婆去世然后到公墓祭奠,另一条是小宇的生活情感线,从落魄到重燃希望,两条线是交织关系,皆集中于人物身上。从结果来看,两条线都完成得不好,剪辑时我仍然着重于情绪表达,模糊了故事线,希望观者能体会到影片的情绪而非故事本身。

Director Biography

Director and Writer ofStanding (2009)—a one-take experimental short film

Director’s Statement

This is a short film of more than ten minutes. At the beginning of creation, I just wanted to express a kind of emotion which comes from myself—I went to a cemetery in Beijing on a whim during the Tomb Sweeping Day in 2019, I didn’t cry for nearly a decade, but for some reason I cried there. In terms of the script and the story, this is a film without a strong conflict, and the original intention of the film is to express a kind of an emotion. The script roughly has two lines: one is very specific line in which the grandma dies and Xiaoyu goes to the cemetery memorial, the other is the line of Xiaoyu’s life and emotions, from abasement to rekindling of hope. They are intertwined and both focus on the characters. However, the two lines are not completed well. During editing, I still focused on the emotional expression and blurred the story line, hoping that the audience could feel the emotion of the film rather than the story itself.

故事梗概

一次学校的春季短假,孙启哲回家看望母亲。期间他约见了一名网上认识的男生后便对自己产生了怀疑,他不知道在面对母亲的期许和喜欢的男生时该如何接受真实的自己。

导演介绍

宋展飞是一名中国新锐导演,目前生活工作于北京。他本科毕业于中央美术学院,硕士毕业于伦敦电影学院。他美院期间的作品融合了多元的影像表现形式,其中多以视频作为载体,针对现当代的一些保守观念进行了探讨。伦电求学期间,他参与拍摄了一系列剧情短片,并入围了多个国内外电影节。

导演阐述

此前我一直想拍一部关于青少年的短片,希望就此来探索他们在面对身份认同时,会如何压抑自己并继续原本的生活。当很多青少年的自我认知和他们家长的认知产生分歧时,年轻人往往会陷入被动,他们对自我的要求会在扮演“好孩子”和“一定的反抗”之间举棋不定。其实,我们多少都“有过”甚至“有着”这样的焦虑;也就是“我”是谁,别人认为的“我”是谁,“我”是应该做自己,还是做别人认为的“我”。虽然对一名成年人来说,做一个“好人”比做一个“好孩子”难太多了。

因此片中的孙启哲可能和很多人一样,刚成年的他羡慕着那些更酷,更解放,更新潮的人;又会因为自己的家庭、外貌、取向甚至自己是谁而感到自我怀疑、否定,羞耻,甚至是厌恶。他不知道自己会成为什么样的人,该成为什么样的人。

通过这部影片,我们可以来窥探启哲的生活:刚成年的他作为一名当代中产单亲家庭的独子,究竟是什么对他的价值观、他的生活、家庭,以及他自己作为“孙启哲”产生了冲击,而他在面对这些冲击所造成的跌宕,面对他“命中注定”的“成长”时,他又该如何变为“成人”。

Synopsis

Qizhe returns home to spend his spring break with his mother. After meeting a man who he originally met online, he begins to lose control of his double life–one which is living true to himself, and the other, which is pretending to be the perfect son.

Director Biography

Zhanfei Song, a young Chinese filmmaker, currently lives and works in Beijing. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), where he has developed an eclectic style through his practice of diverse video forms. His earlier works mainly aim to criticize traditional cultural values. Song also holds a MA from London Film School. During his years at LFS, he worked as the cinemaphotographer and editor on several short films, which have been screened at numerous film festivals in Europe and Asia.

Director’s Statement

Nowadays, as the Chinese middle-class youth benefit from the relatively abundant material wealth and comfortable living standards, they become more audacious in exploring their sexual identities, which sometimes conflict with the ideologies the older generations believe in. For the younger generations, being true to themselves in the churning contemporary identity politics is challenging, particular in the space of family, where they confront the expectations of their parents. Against such a social backdrop, Qizhe, the protagonist of my film, is thrown into the turmoil of desire and lies as he comes of age with his homosexuality. Despite his efforts to maintain “peace” under a fragile familial roof, Qizhe needs to choose between his own happiness and that of his mother’s, thereby facing his “fated growth”.
