講座摘要:

當電影成為存在於新媒體、數據資料庫、蒙太奇敘事、與「媒體語言—文化地理」的雙重離散性之間的一種混雜介面時,「文化跨碼」(cultural inter-coding)如何成為新媒體作為電影的內部語言?本講主要探論「螢幕紀錄片」如何以一種可以不斷被交換、轉譯且在語言的翻譯政治下形構了文化交互介面,成為跨文化電影的另一種格式,並思考「文化跨碼」如何在雲端檔案混雜的「糾纏區帶」中成為多重檔案織線,外展為記憶、翻譯與變形的軟場景。

Abstract :

As cinema becomes a hybrid interface between new media, databases, montage narratives, and the double discrete of “media language-cultural geography”, how does “cultural inter-coding” become the intrinsic language of new media as cinema, how does it differentiate itself from intercultural cinema, and how can it be constantly exchanged, translated and shaped by the politics of language translation, forming an interactive interface of culture and becoming an alternative format of intercultural cinema. Afterward, the two interwoven visual languages of soft cinema and soft montage are extended into a “soft-documentary”, illustrating how, in the context of globalization, the “cultural inter-coding” becomes a multiplicity of archival strings in a hybrid “entangled zone” of cloud archives, and extends into an arbitrary space of memory, translation, and “Soft-Scene”.

2013 | 00:40:00 | 英文 | 彩色 | 立體聲 | 16:9 | HD video

 

「奪回從我們身上偷走的黃金,這是我們行動的目標。」

 

《通靈者書信》是一部關於迦納通靈術和當代科技的「劇情紀錄片」(documentary-fiction),試圖揭示一種混合了巫毒術、名為「Sakawa」的網路詐騙真相。《通靈者書信》將詐騙者的故事追溯至迦納的獨立時期,視「Sakawa」為一種反新殖民的抵抗形式,這部電影以穿過數位化礦道的網路旅行為手段,將觀眾帶領至電影中的每個現場,例如:金礦、電子垃圾場、巫毒儀式或迪斯可舞會。劇中一名角色透過朗讀他寄給導演的書信,述說關於迦納、黃金和技術的殖民歷史。

「一切堅固的東西都煙消雲散了,一切神聖的東西都被褻瀆了,人們終於不得不清醒地直面他們生活的真實狀況,和他們相互的關係。」 — 卡爾.馬克思

 

隨著科技在過度開發的世界中向前推進,大量成堆的舊電腦被棄置和回收,送往西非海岸,最終被扔進了迦納阿克拉市的「Agbogbloshie」垃圾場。年輕人回收剛抵達的電子垃圾,他們破壞並焚燒塑料外殼以提取其中的貴金屬。最終,這些金屬被變賣、熔化並重新加工為新的商品——這是一個奇怪的回收系統,是一種藉非洲人在歐洲的材料中尋找礦物資源,而產生的一種逆反新殖民主義的採掘。

Synopsis:

 

  1. Lettres du Voyant

 

2013 | 00:40:00 | English | Color | Stereo | 16:9 | HD video

 

“To take back the gold that was stolen from us – this is the object of our actions.”

 

Lettres du Voyant is a documentary-fiction about spiritism and technology in contemporary Ghana that attempts to uncover some truths about a mysterious practice called “Sakawa” – internet scams mixed with voodoo magic. Tracing back the scammers’ stories to the times of Ghanaian independence, the film proposes Sakawa as a form of anti-neocolonial resistance. The film takes the form of a voyage through a network of digitised mine shafts that lead the viewer to each of the film’s locations ; a gold mine, an e-waste dump, a voodoo ritual or a discotheque for example. A character recounts a story through reading a series of letters that he has written to the film’s author – letters that speak about the colonial history of Ghana, of gold, of technology.

 

  1. All that is Solid

 

2014 | 00:15:43 | English | B&W and Color | Stereo | 16:9 | HD video

 

“All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.” — Karl Marx

 

As technological progress pushes forward in the overdeveloped world, enormous piles of obsolete computers are thrown away and recycled. Pushed out of sight and sent to the coast of West Africa these computers end up in waste grounds such as Agbogbloshie in Accra, Ghana. On arrival the e-waste is recuperated by young men, who break and burn the plastic casings in order to extract the precious metals contained within. Eventually the metals are sold, melted and reformed into new objects to be sold – it is a strange system of recycling, a kind of reverse neocolonial mining, whereby the African is searching for mineral resources in the materials of Europe.
