 纪录片《中国门》上海特别展映,导演王杨到场交流

 

影片简介

 

天还未亮,县城高中的学生们已经在苦读。偌大的操场上满是奋发努力的年轻人。这是中国西部的贫困县城,无数的学生和家长把希望投向教育,为了能改变自己的人生。所有的努力都是为了面对最终的高考,这就像 是一道大门。通过考试,一些人能迈进新的人生,走进城市的大学。

 

北京,阴冷的初冬时 节。一位来自农村的大学毕业生面临一次重大的抉择。是留下还是离开?公车站前满是拥挤的年轻人,地铁里一张张疲倦的面容诉说着真实的差距。年轻人和游客一起在天还未亮的时刻涌进天安门广场观看升旗。这里是这个国家强壮有力的心脏,然而却给不出任何答案。

 

  上海繁华的夜景如梦似幻。一位音乐学院的毕业生谈起初入社会的阻力。她回忆起苦练钢琴的岁月。父母的期待和付出仿佛还在眼前。家庭录像带里,坐在钢琴前的童年就像是一个有苦有乐的玩笑。高级早教机构里,孩子稚嫩的脸上充满了疑惑。新式的教育将向孩子们提出崭新的期盼。黄浦江上夜航的船只已悄悄遁入幽深的黑暗。

 

 

影片阐述

 

    人生就像通过一扇扇门,一扇门代表一个世界。古代中国,读书读的好就能有功名,得富贵。当代中国,通过读书改变命运仍然是绝大多数中国孩子的必由之路。高考是一道门,毕业找工作又是一道门。对于普通人来说这些人生的拐点都异常重要,然而对于社会而言,更多的是冷冰冰的数字和大大小小的挫折。我正是想用摄影机深入到这些时代和数字的深处,到板块的交界处去看个究竟。

  从东到西,由北到南。摄影机跨越城市和乡村,以及不同的个体。这是一部对当代教育现象集中呈现的纪录片。也是对教育背后所凝聚的“中国梦”的诠释。从西部的高考状元县、到压力巨大的都市。结构的交叉是为了凝固现象背后的事物。借用“门”的概念,我们试图发现一种恒定而超越时代的中国式奋斗。以及突显那些个人线索里不断挣扎着的小小梦想家们。

       一场高考、一次招聘会,都是改变命运的时刻。面对转机,我们的主人公却发现难以逾越的鸿沟。然而不明不昧中,他们依然打亮手电筒向前进发。此时,危机和希望共存。个人所面对的局面,正是当代的群体寓言。教育问题是一把钥匙,它可能为我们开启对时代的反思。面对危机和转机,命运的大门渐渐清晰。人的奋斗和社会现实形成一种悖论,一个怪圈。同样的,这是危机,也是转机的开始。

SYNOPSIS:

 

“China Gate" tells the story of young Chinese fight to change their fate through studying. 

 

Right before dawn, students in Huining have already started their self-studying session; hard working youngsters have filled up the space of school ground. This is one of the most poverty-stricken Counties in Western China; here people's only hope is in education, as the way to change their social status. Therefore all their effort point towards the College Entrance Examination, the process is like going through a gate, those who pass can study at urban Universities, and have the chance to build a better life.

 

During the same winter season in Beijing, a graduate student faces a big decision. Should he keep trying to survive in the big city or get back to his countryside home? The exhausted faces at the Beijing underground seem to be revealing the truth about their distance in between. The student comes to see the flag ceremony at Tiananmen Square, where the pulsing symbol of the nation lies. However it is not giving any answer to his anxiety.

 

Shanghai's nightfall sparkles with its prosperity, but one graduate from Shanghai music conservatory tells her struggle of finding a place in society. The memories of handwork from early age and the high hope of parents seem like yesterday, the home video footage of her sitting in front of the piano at young age looked like a bittersweet joke. Jumping back to the present, in a playful early learning institute, it seems more like confusion appearing on these children's face. Is this a new educational method that gives the answer to the high hopes of parents?

 

 

DIRECTOR’S NOTE:

 

Life is like a journey of entering different doors, each door represents a world. Back in the feudal society in China, those who pass the imperial examination are privileged to be wealthy and successful. Today, changing one's fate through studying is still a key path for most children. For example, the College Entrance Exam is like a door, and getting a job is the one that follows. So such transitions are vital parts of one's life, but as an ordinary citizen, changes are often observed as numerical statistics charted emotionlessly. Therefore I wanted to use the camera to discover and capture the meaning behind these changes.

 

I traveled to three separate regions in China, crossing between urban and countryside, and followed different individuals. So the film captures a broader sense of how the current educational system influence on people and how it’s all connected, this way it gives an insight into the "Chinese Dream" behind the studying madness. The juxtaposition of a small county school with a highly pressured large city is a way to question deeper beneath the appearance; and by using the concept of "Door", I attempt to capture the struggle of hardworking Chinese, but more importantly, their spirit that keeps them fighting against all odds.

 

Each examination or career fair is a decisive moment for these young people. Facing such transition, the students keep on walking forward like their journey to school before dawn, with their torch leads the way in the darkness. I feel the experience of an individual is always revealing to the collective fate, therefore I think education is a powerful key to reflect present problems, even though it may seem like a crisis at first, but I believe it is also the beginning of new opportunities.
