Description

著名電影導演許鞍華博士於3月11日向逾200名嶺南大學學生、教職員及嘉賓分享她對香港的想法、文學與電影等議題,並表示:「我們應該學習二十世紀初文藝創作人如魯迅的榜樣,找回那種激情及對社會問題的投入,否則我們就會陷入虛無或變得犬儒。」

不過,許博士認為作者及製片人不應抱著「教化讀者和觀眾」的想法。「一部電影不是由導演來完成,而是觀眾。電影能夠引起觀眾不同的感受、不同的想法,往往超出導演的預期和想像。所有這些感受和意思加起來,才算完成了電影製作的程序。」

是次公開講座是「嶺南大學藝術節2014」的重點節目之一,由中文系黃淑嫻教授主持,與許博士就「城市與鄉郊」、「個人與政治」、「社會民生」及「文學與電影」四個方面,暢談許博士心目中的香港。

屢獲殊榮的許博士於1970年代末開展其電影事業,素以能夠巧妙地平衡電影的商業元素與知識分子的人文關懷而稱譽。2012年嶺南大學頒發人文學榮譽博士學位,以表揚她對香港電影文化所作的傑出貢獻。

“We should follow the footsteps of Chinese creative workers like Lu Xun in the early twentieth century, and regain their passion and concern for social problems. Otherwise we will end up in nihilism or cynicism,” renowned film director Dr Ann Hui said as she shared her thoughts about Hong Kong, literature and film with more than 200 Lingnan students, staff and guests on 11 March.

However, Dr Hui cautioned that writers and filmmakers should not act like “teaching the reader and audience” in their works. “A film is not completed by the director, but the audience. It can inspire people to think and feel differently, way beyond the director’s awareness and imagination. All these feelings and meanings derived from the film add up to complete the creative process of filmmaking,” she said.

In the sharing session, one of the highlights of Lingnan Arts Festival 2014, Dr Hui discussed with event host Prof Mary Wong Shuk-han, Department of Chinese, about her Hong Kong on the four themes of urban and rural landscapes of Hong Kong, individual and politics, society and people’s livelihood, as well as film and literature.

Starting her career in the late 1970s, Dr Hui is an award-winning film director acclaimed for her delicate balance between commercial elements and humanistic concern as an intellectual. She was conferred the degree of Doctor of Humanities honoris causa by Lingnan University in 2012 in recognition of her outstanding contributions to Hong Kong’s film culture.
