焦點影人︰若松孝二與足立正生的獨立電影革命
Indie Focus: Koji Wakamatsu & Masao Adachi

年初的香港獨立電影節因資源所限,沒能舉辦焦點導演環節,作為延續,影意志將於六月把若松孝二和足立正生的作品帶給觀眾。

六十年代的日本,是最具革命可能(不只政治,甚至所有文化藝術,包括電影)、也是最獨立和自由的時代,除了一些教科書上熟悉的名字外,說到能反映這個時代的電影人物,不得不談若松孝二和足立正生。隨着資訊發達,21世紀以後歐美學者已經開始認真研究和發掘二人的作品,並重新評價若松製作的作品羣,可惜他們在華語地區仍然是大家陌生的名字。這次的回顧專題,希望可以讓大家重新發現和思考電影所應具有的革命和獨立的可能性。

這次我們特別邀請了日本著名電影評論家、也是研究若松和足立電影的第一人,四方田犬彥來港出席講座;師從若松的井上淳一導演也會來和我們分享他在若松製作的寶貴經驗。還有,被遣返回國後一直無法出境的足立正生,也會在通過網上視像通訊和觀眾交流。

Early this year, the Hong Kong Independent Film Festival separated the ‘Indie Focus’ section due to limited resources. Now as an extension, here we bring the works by Koji Wakamatsu and Masao Adachi.

Japan possessed the highest possibility for (political and cultural) revolution in the 1960s. It was the country’s freest and most independent era. Wakamatsu and Adachi are the two quintessential filmmakers of this era. With the advancement of information technology, western scholars have begun to study the work of these two filmmakers and reevaluate the repertoire of Wakamatsu Productions. However, they are still relatively unknown in Chinese-speaking regions. While Hong Kong International Film Festival had screened some of Wakamatsu’s films ten years ago, there was not any sort of in-depth presentation or suitable reading. We hope this current retrospective can help viewers to rediscover and reconsider the possibility of revolution and independence in cinema.

We have invited acclaimed Japanese critic Inuhiko Yomota, a foremost expert in Wakamatsu and Adachi, to present and further the discourse of the two filmmakers’ work. Filmmaker Junichi Inoue, who was mentored by Wakamatsu, will also share his experience working at Wakamatsu Productions. Although Adachi has been unable to leave the country since his repatriation, he will communicate with the audience via online video chat.
