YesAsia Editorial Description

The Inspired Island, a series of six documentaries about eminent Taiwan literary figures, drew great praise in 2011. The acclaimed series returns with seven more films about prominent Taiwan and Hong Kong writers in its second installment, The Inspired Island II.

Leung Ping Kwan, better known by the pen name Yesi, is one of the most important figures of modern Hong Kong literature. From poetry and novels to prose and literary and cultural criticism, his work drew from different cultures and spanned across different media. Director Ben Wong began shooting Boundary in 2009, and followed Yesi's footsteps until his death in 2013. Revisiting Yesi's life and literature from the 1950s to the 21st century, Wong interviewed the writer's family members and acquaintances from different fields, including academics, writers, artists, fashion designers and gourmets.

This edition comes with the film on Blu-ray and DVD, a book about Yesi and 69 minutes of special features.

內容簡介:

《他們在島嶼寫作》電影計畫試圖以紀錄片影像為媒介,導演的電影風格語言為引路人,將重要華文文學家以電影文本的形式,紀錄下文學大家的重要記錄的同時,介紹給下一代的讀者。

我們的重點不僅止於保存,更希望展現作家及其作品在世代交接的歷史過程中,是如何傳遞出令人感動的力量,成為一世代的文學文化資產。如此以來,這些文學才有可能永留人心,如火炬不朽不滅,重燃出新一波的書寫復興。

繼2011年推出六位以臺灣為主的文壇大家,《他們在島嶼寫作》第二系列這次跨越海峽、連結另一座島嶼香港,由七位中新世代精銳導演鄧勇星、齊怡、劉佩怡、王婉柔、陳懷恩、陳果、黃勁輝,以電影的語言,重新詮釋紀錄台港七位重要的文學大師:劉以鬯、洛夫、瘂弦、林文月、白先勇、西西、也斯,生命與創作的歷程。

◆ 也斯:《東西》Boundary

  也斯,本名梁秉鈞,以兩個虛詞為筆名的華文界重要詩人。2014年香港和臺灣文化界舉辦了「回看 也斯」的活動,懷念逝世的作家,以及他所聚集的美好年代。
  
也斯溫和而充滿善意的笑容,對世間不墜的熱情與好奇心,讓他人緣奇佳。涉獵不同文化與人群,跨越文體以及媒體,構成了也斯獨特的人文視野,說明了香港的一個時代。他寫作的詩、散文、小說和評論,如繁花盛開的狂夏,千姿百態。
  
本片啓動於2009年,當時也斯建議導演團隊:「若你想認識我,就去認識我的朋友,在我朋友身上都可以看到我的影子」。於是本片訪問不同領域的人士,包括學者、文學家、藝術家、服裝設計師和美食家,以及也斯家人等,在風格化的訪談中,跟著也斯的身影橫跨半個世紀,展開五○年代到21世紀的旅程。片中記錄了也斯生前珍貴的片段,充滿詩意的影像,縮影了多元跨界聚合的香港文化。
