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.

His Taipei People is one of the most iconic works of modern Chinese-language literature. His melancholic stories, including Crystal Boys, Love’s Lone Flower and The Last Night of Madam Chin, are frequently adapted for film, television and theater. Directed by Teng Yung Shing (Return Ticket), Multiflorate Splendour profiles the extraordinary literary career of renowned Taiwan writer Kenneth Pai Hsien Yung. The film intersperses Peony Pavilion's stream-of-consciousness style narration with Pai's life story, from founding a literary journal at the young age of 22 and teaching in Santa Barbara for over two decades, to his life-long efforts promoting the revival of Kunqu Opera and his recent works dedicated to his father, who was a general for the Kuomintang.

This edition comes with the film on Blu-ray and DVD, a book about Kenneth Pai and 70 minutes of special features.

Product Information

七位文壇大家,七位中新世代導演
跨越海峽,連結臺灣、香港兩座島嶼
紀錄二十世紀大歷史的變遷,戰亂,離散與聚首

藍光版+DVD版+作家小傳書籍完整典藏


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。

◆ 白先勇:《奼紫嫣紅開遍》Multiflorate Splendour

身為華文世界最為知名的小說家之一,白先勇筆下賦予華文小說中幾個最鮮明的角色故事與生命:尹雪艷、金大班、朱青、龍子、阿青……以都市為名,寫一代島嶼記憶。不但深植於讀者的想像,還激發跨界跨代藝術工作者,前仆後繼改編為電視、電影、舞台劇。
  
白先勇2003年起為了振興崑曲藝術,投身青春版《牡丹亭》,將傳統藝術推廣到劇院、校園以及歐美,在陌生於中國傳統戲曲的心靈中種下種子。「情不知所起,一往而深」,於是本片採用《遊園驚夢》的意識流形式,交替敘說白先勇的特殊際遇與文學歷程--從22歲創辦《現代文學》的青春朝氣,近年寫作《父親與民國》、到《止痛療傷》的人子赤誠;聖塔芭芭拉29年教書的回望,以及相隔40多年桂林米粉的滋味、蘇州園林的10年重遊,在宛若黑暗王國的舞台演出,還有無數演講及授課的旅程,作家白先勇一人引領數代風潮,以獨一無二的強韌膽識、細膩深情,在片中迴盪交響,引領觀眾逐漸碰觸熱得發燙的小說家胸懷。
