與紀錄片導演對話:珠慧瑪拉婻
Speaking for the silent from a small town near Manila
以影像展現菲律賓小鎮中的噤聲底層
Jewel Maranan is an independent documentary filmmaker and producer from the Philippines. She started working for independent documentaries in 2008, tackling conflict situations in Manila. Throughout the years, she has developed a deep interest in the ways by which history inches through ordinary life. Jewel is an active participant in efforts to help develop Southeast Asian documentary through the SEA DocNet, a network of documentary professionals in Southeast Asia.
Her 2011 production TONDO, BELOVED: TO WHAT ARE THE POOR BORN? is a geopolitical exploration of life before birth in the smallest home in the seams of Manila’s premier international port. 6 years later, Jewel fixed her critical eye on the lives in the shadow of Tondo’s ever-engulfing port and finished her latest work IN THE CLAWS OF A CENTURY WANTING (official selection to 43rd Hong Kong International Film Festival). It is a filmic symphony of increasing everyday violence in the aspiration for a global city.
菲律賓獨立紀錄片導演及製作人珠慧瑪拉婻,2008年起從事獨立紀錄片工作,關注馬尼拉社會中所發生的衝突事件。多年來,她對歷史如何漸次地影響人們日常生活產生濃厚興趣。她亦致力發展東南亞紀錄片,積極參與由歌德學院所創立的SEA DocNet,透過此協助紀錄片工作者的網絡,鼓勵多元創作、挖掘被遺忘的當地文化。
2011年作品《貧者為誰而生》展現馬尼拉湯都的兩個平行時空:全球化下的繁忙貨櫃港口,以及港口邊緣掙扎於生存線上的棚屋人家。六年後她再次以貼近局內人的視角潛行湯都貨櫃區,完成《魔爪下的日與夜》,入選本屆香港國際電影節。菲律賓官僚於火災後劃定十米遷移線,離地政策令居民不屈發聲。藉着捕捉四個貧窮家庭的生活,瑪拉婻除了展示生死相接之日常,更提問湯都主權誰屬。她對生態的敏感觀察,有層次地介入天地意象,識穿全球化反自然而行的昇平謊話。
