Message from Department of Comparative Literature Event Poster 及時擁抱 《一念無明》― 城市與遺忘 與導演及編劇對話 曰期 : 三月十七日 (星期五) 時間 : 晚上七時至八時半 地點 :百周年校園逸夫教學樓四樓434室 嘉賓 : 黃進 導演 陳楚珩 編劇 主持 : 余麗文博士 羅玉華博士 故事簡介 迴避還是直面,否定還是擁抱,放棄還是改變。 阿東(余文樂 飾)患有躁鬱症,因父親離家不顧,獨力照顧飽受病患折磨的母親 (金燕玲 飾)。 母子二人情緒互相牽引激化,猶如漫長的困獸鬥。一天,阿東如常替失禁的母 親沖洗,拉扯間發生意外,導致母親死亡。阿東的父親大海(曾志偉 飾)驚覺一直逃避的問題發酵成了悲劇。獨居多年的他在愧疚和孤獨驅使下,應醫 院建議,接阿東到自己的板間房暫住。 故事從這裡開始。兩個背負沉重愧疚的大男人只剩下對方,對方卻是自己最不能 面對的過去。當二人一步一步走出過去的陰霾和枷鎖,在狹縫間建立關係,更大 的壓迫卻來自社會。 節目將以粵語進行 查詢 : malcs@hku.hk Meeting with the Director and Screenwriter of MAD WORLD Date: March 17, 2017 (Fri) Time: 7 - 8pm Venue: Room 434, 4/F, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU Guests: Director Wong Chun Screenwriter Florence Chan Moderators: Dr. Winnie Yee Dr. Fiona Law Synopsis “To avoid, or to confront? To deny, or to embrace? To give up, or to make a change?” The film begins with an old man who has long been absent as a father (Eric TSANG), picking up his son (Shawn YUE), who is suffering from bipolar disorder, from a mental hospital. Both men are in deep remorse for the accident that caused the death of the mother (Elaine JIN). The tension and anxiety boil as they stay with each other in a tiny subdivided flat. As time passes, they realize the pain between one another is not the only confrontation that awaits them; but also to face the cruel and unjust world that they are living in. Langauge: Cantonese (Simultaneous interpretation will be provided upon request by 15/3.) ALL are welcome! No registration required. Organized by MALCS, Department of Comparative Literature
