YesAsia Editorial Description

Estranged from his father since a young age, Malaysian director Lau Kek Huat traveled to Taiwan to study filmmaking, and then returned home with a camera in search of answers. Lau traced back his family history from his absent father to his taboo grandfather, who passed away at the young age of 29 after joining Malaysia's Communist movement. Lau's grandmother never talks about her late husband, and not a single photo of him remains. To find out what inspired his grandfather to sacrifice everything in the name of revolution, Lau set out from Malaysia to Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Thailand to talk to other former Communist party members of his grandfather's generation. His journey into his family history and a buried chapter of Malaysian history is documented in Absent Without Leave.

Product Information

導演:廖克發 諶靜蓮

“精采而且情感真摯”- 侯孝賢

親愛的祖父,你的死亡不再是家族和國族的禁忌

導演廖克發從小與父親疏離,從馬來西亞來到台灣學電影後,帶著攝影機回到家鄉追尋答案。他從生命中缺席的父親,一路追溯到在家族中被視為禁忌話題的祖父,卻發現個人家族歷史的背後,隱藏的竟是馬來西亞一整個世代不願面對的過去,以及一群曾經付出熱血、卻彷彿消失於世間的人們。

廖克發的祖父當年加入馬來亞共產黨,年僅29歲就英年早逝。祖母從此絕口不提丈夫,家中連一張祖父的照片都沒有,僅存一張畫像。是怎樣的信念,讓祖父毅然決然拋家棄子甚至犧牲生命?為了尋找答案,廖克發卻得踏出馬來西亞,遠赴廣州、香港與泰國邊境,才能找到那群與祖父一樣曾為革命揮灑青春的馬共。

廖克發以《不即不離》中從塵封中發掘出的家族記憶,獻給那塊土地上曾經勇 敢活過、愛過、抗爭過的人們。
