YesAsia Editorial Description

Touch of the Light editor and screenwriter Li Nien Hsiu traces her father's amazing life in the documentary Hebei Taipei, a story that spans 5,000 kilometers and 15 years of filming. The director's father, Old Li, was born in Hebei, China, and lost both his parents at a young age. His father died during the Northern Expedition and his mother committed suicide. To survive, Li joined a temple and became a monk. When the civil war broke out, he picked up arms and joined the Nationalist army. After the Nationalists were defeated, he switched sides and joined the Communist army. To him, being a soldier was not about politics but survival.

During the Korean War, Li was dispatched to the Korean peninsula and got captured near the North-South border. Through UN assistance, he ends up in the Republic of China – in Taiwan. He would never return to his hometown in Mainland China again. In Taiwan, Li marries and forms a family, but lives in fear of his Communist background being discovered. At 60, he separates from his wife and family. Faced with the unbearable sight of his own graying hair, he puts on a wig and women's clothing, and tries to make up for lost years. Where will Li's lifetime of drifting and displacement lead him in the end?

穿越5000公里 歷時15年紀錄
獻給父親的美麗畫像

知道自己從哪裡來,才能知道要往哪裡去

  出生在中國河北的老李,因為戰爭來到台灣,一待六十年,再也沒回去故鄉。但是在夢裡,他早已踏上故鄉千百回,每回都是血流成河的景象。

  十歲那年,他的父親遭北伐軍分屍,母親帶孩子連夜逃命。從水災走到乾旱,最終母親因病自盡。為了有飯吃,老李入廟當和尚。隨後國共內戰再度爆發,他放下佛經,拿起槍桿,加入國民黨軍,殺敵無數。但最終敗退,老李棄械投降。加入敵軍-共產黨。
對老李來說,從軍不是為了政治,是為了吃飯。在誰家吃飯,就說誰家好。但他隨波逐流的一生,並沒有因此停止。韓戰爆發後,中共派兵支援,老李在南北韓交界被俘擄。在聯合國的協助下,來到國民黨政府的所在地-台灣。

  來台後,老李結婚,有了家庭。但一顆心總是懸著,害怕別人知道他當過共產黨。六十歲那年,他與妻兒分居。每每照鏡子,都無法忍受已是白髮蒼蒼。於是他戴上黑色假髮,穿上女裝,想彌補錯過的所有年華。這時,他還不知道這顛沛流離的一生,最終是怎麼結束的⋯


李念修
河北臺北的導演,即是被攝者的女兒。因為答應父親要將他的故事傳達出去,而開始長達15年的紀錄。從台灣台北到中國河北省、山西省,再到韓國,超過5000公里的旅程,代替父親完成從未實現的返鄉夢。也因為拍攝影片,疏遠的父女關係逐漸拉近,更能體會父親的心境。做子女的,其實很難能有機會瞭解父母的一生。所以藉由這趟旅程,終於領會:「要知道自己從哪裡來,才能知道要往哪裡去」。

參與多部劇情片與紀錄片剪輯,如《逆光飛翔》、《 五月天 追夢3DNA》及《不老騎士》。2010年以《街舞狂潮》提名第四十七屆金馬獎最佳剪輯,並開始劇本創作,在電影《逆光飛翔》擔任剪輯與編劇工作。2015年以導演職完成紀錄長片《河北臺北》,入圍山形國際影展 國際競賽,2016獲台北電影節最佳紀錄片。
