前言 foreword

社會運動,不只存在於物理空間和人數。

更存在於想像力、透過與人交流而重新認識自己。

social movements do not only exist in physical space and number of people,

but also within imagination, interaction with people, which let us understand ourselves from a new angle.

有言運動就像一場戀愛,但戀愛也經常有期望落差。一開始的浪漫,通常不代表永恆。溝通失誤、滿地錯位、無力感持久不退……或許,經過了創傷,才能慢慢拾回自己,是走一段令我們解開、鬆綁的路。

it is said that social movements are like romantic love. yet, for love there is often an expectation gap. romance at the beginning of a relationship usually does not mean eternality. miscommunication, wrong positions, long-lasting sense of uselessness… perhaps, only after these traumas, we can find ourselves, going through a path of release and relief.

還記得,去年社運電影節的映後討論,有人問到如何面對「運動創傷」,我們沒有答案,也無法只靠自己找到答案。

in the post-screening discussion of last year’s smff, one asked how to face the ‘traumas of social movements’. we do not have the answer, nor the way to find the answer on our own.

運動需要大家願意開放自我,帶著關注走進群體之中,聆聽他人和自己,發現日常生活中的社會壓迫,選擇行動起來。日常生活,離不開主流對邊緣的無視和壓抑,包括一切黏著我們的權威崇拜、肆意簡化、無理暴力……若要批評主流文化,不是因為它「庸俗」,而是因為它誘使我們惰於思考,甚或以不同形式地藐視他人。

in social movements, it is necessary for us to be willing to open ourselves, going into the society with concerns and listen to others and ourselves. by doing so, then, we realize the social oppression in daily life and take action. daily life is not exempted from the disregard and repression of marginal groups by the mainstream; mainstream culture attaches to and influences our lives, such as the worship of authority, reckless simplification, groundless violence….when we criticize the mainstream culture, it is not because of its ‘bad taste’, but because it tempts us not to think, and even look down on others in various forms.

主流文化無孔不入。在這種氛圍下,我們每一個人如何走進集體行動,從中學習如何做到「你中有我,我中有你」,使集體成為一個有機的集體,而非一群面目模糊的群眾?

mainstream culture is everywhere. given such situation, how can we join collective actions, leaning to ‘include others in the self’, and turning a collective into an organic one but not a group of unrecognized people?

這年社運電影節,讓我們再一次互相觀照,一起裝備自己。

let us reflect upon and equip ourselves in this year’s smff.
