Documentary Vision Screening Workshop

Documentary is a genre of films, which documents and records the happenings of an event, the life of people and the history of land.  It does not o capture the moments directly, but rather the visions rely on the decisions of the directors and the people who are involved.  With various perspectives, different considerations on aesthetic, moral and emotional issues, a one of a kind reality is born in the eyes of the audience.

Kaitak, Centre for Research and Development, will be organizing the Documentary Vision Screening Workshop  this year with selected  films focusing on “Social Happenings”, “People” and “History of Land” for the workshops, together with the sharing sessions conducted by the directors / producers, hoping to open a discussion on shooting style, discourse analysis and the process of production.

 

Screening Workshop 1On Social Happenings Walk On! Shun Ning Road (Selected section)

Co-produced: v-artivist, Shun Ning Road Concern Group, Shun Ning Road Volunteers Support Team  2010 / Hong Kong / 95min Language: Cantonese

In June, 2009, the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) has announced that 69-83, Shun Ning Road has been zoned as urban renewal area. On the same day, the freezing survey was carried out. Since then, 13 tenant households here have received notices of evacuation from the landlords gradually. However, the URA refused to admit their idenitities,  refuse to relocate or compensate them resonably. Victims were all low-income rersidents from the area.

The property agents used every means to evict them, while the URA ignored the problems.  This is not a well established or mordenized neighbourhood but only a grass-rooted yet convenient community.  What makes these tenants keep on fighting?

紀實眼 –記錄片放映工作坊
記錄片記事、記人、記地:記一個事件的發展脈絡,記人的思想情感,記一個地方的變遷。但,它不是純粹的寫實記錄,不一定將眼下發生的所有以最直接的方式複印到記憶體上。記錄片的導演可以主導作品的敍事方向,被攝者可以參與當中,推進事情的發展。當中包涵不同角度的觀察,牽涉多方面的美學、道德與情感的考量,經剪輯後將獨有的真實呈現在觀眾眼前。

啟德研究與發展中心在3月至4月期間開始舉辦記錄片放映會暨工作坊,選播以「記事」、「記人」、「記地」為主題之記錄影片,並邀得作品導演/製作者參與映後分享會,集中討論以上範疇影片之拍攝手法、論述方向,以及製作過程中主客觀點的比重考量。

工作坊一:「記事」─ 順寧道,走下去 (片段選播)
共同創作:影行者、順寧道重建關注組、順寧道義工支援組 2010 / 香港 / 95分鐘  語言:粵語

2009年6月,市建局宣佈將順寧道69-83號劃為重建區,並即日進行人口凍結登記;同日開始,13戶租客陸續收到小地產業主的迫遷令,然而市建局卻不肯承認他們作為受影響租戶之身份,拒絕依法進行原區安置或者合理補償。受影響的居民都是這個重建區的低收入人士。

這邊廂地產商剪水剪電上門叫罵,那邊廂市建局闊佬懶理。回頭看看這個草根社區,只有物價低廉、交通便利的生活圈,是什麼驅使毫無議價能力的板房租戶持續抗爭?
