故事梗概 Synopsis

纪录片《我们这种合唱团》主要讲述南京市性别多元合唱团New Jump在2020年11月至2021年7月期间发生的故事。合唱团受疫情和其特殊性的影响,在过程中经历许多思想及观点上的冲突,因而碰撞出如合唱团般“不同的花火”。《我们这种合唱团》主要反映酷儿团体在社会上的困境,以及作为个体的他们如何在冲突中调节自身与社会的关系。

The documentary “The Choir of Our Kind” mainly tells the story of Nanjing’s gender-diverse choir New Jump during November 2020 and July 2021. Affected by the epidemic and its particularity, the choir experienced many conflicts of ideas and viewpoints in the process, and thus collided with “different fireworks” like the chorus. “The Choir of Our Kind” mainly reflects the plight of queer groups in society and how they, as individuals, adjust their relationship with society in the midst of conflict.

导演阐述 Director Statement

本片力图从田野影像中梳理出一个核心的问题:中国语境下的酷儿合唱团是什么样的?从合唱团成员们日常的排练、互动、指挥讲话、全员会议中,这个问题的答案将被逐渐呈现出来。在动态变幻的当代中国,各种宏观因素,历史背景,文化环境和个体认知都在影响着合唱团组织者及其成员的存在方式与自我定位。我们力图为观众呈现出拍摄者在田野里的真实感受,让观众体验到酷儿团体内部的多样性、复杂性和冲突性。本片不愿止步于从合唱团的音乐和表演中,表现出难能可贵的“正能量”,更希望可以通过这一微观的互动场域揭示我国酷儿社群的真实状况。

This film tries to tease out a core question from the field images: what does a queer choir look like in the Chinese context? From the daily rehearsals, interactions, conductor speeches, and meetings of the choir members, the answer to this question will be gradually presented. In the dynamic and changing contemporary China, various macro factors, historical backgrounds, cultural environments and individual cognitions all affect the way of existence and self-positioning of choir organizers and members. We try to present to the audience the real feelings of the photographer in the field, allowing the audience to experience the diversity, complexity and conflict within the queer community. This film does not stop at showing the commendable “positive energy” from the music and performances of the choir, but tries to reveal the real situation of the Chinese queer community through this microscopic interactive field.

故事梗概 Synopsis

黄树立以自省、以影像、以与母亲的对话、以其浪漫的日记般叙述,触碰着自我,触碰着家的记忆。亲人之间彼此相爱,却有心结难解。复杂的情感,衬着叙述中暧昧的幸福,在阳光下超八毫米胶片的温柔中,流淌。胶片影像震颤着,似一封告别之书,句读中,令人心疼。叙述者被迫成为了一个飘渺的虚影,在传统社会的文化下,浮游着,在自己的菲林中,飘散着,轻轻撕咬心弦。

In a deeply moving diary-like narrative, Shuli Huang confronts personal and family images with introspective thoughts, adding short, interspersed conversations with his mother. The gentleness of Super-8 footage and the ostensible happiness of the scenes, often awash with sunlight, are a harsh contrast with the complexity of their relationship, as they love but can’t understand each other. Thus, the film resonates as a heartbreaking farewell letter, in which, in between the lines, we see the gripping portrayal of a norm-obsessed culture that forces the protagonist to be nothing but a mere shadow, even in his own film.
