重構連結

面對日益嚴峻的社會矛盾,政府高官高舉「獅子山下」﹑「人人為我」為所謂「香港精神」,叫民眾少對他們抱怨,自求多福。他們沒有說的,是金句背後的語境,《獅子山下》﹑《七十二家房客》所再現的,是社會﹑經濟制度的不安壓迫,民眾之間的團結自救。

隨著舊區重建﹑鄉郊的發展,舊有的社區網絡不停地被拆散,「屏風樓」﹑門禁社區拔地而起。公共空間被財團一一圈佔,僅餘的街道﹑公園被嚴格監控。有機的人際網絡被政府﹑財團不斷否定﹑斬斷﹔連結的可能似乎隨著開放的公共空間不斷壓縮而變得更小。而我們的生活方式,亦隨此而被政府﹑財團重重規限,只能以他們期望的方式生活,墮入相互割裂﹑剝削的循環之中。

如果我們對生活的各種可能仍然存有想像,我們必須嘗試避過資本的仲介,重尋連結的場域。

今次電影節選片中,展現了各種重塑社區﹑拓闊連結的嘗試和可能︰ 在台灣,當小區和「社會大眾」利益被置於對立面,行動者和居民如何梳理當中的關係﹔在希臘和西班牙,群眾持續在社區之中挑戰「私有」的概代,互相支援,奪回並重新分配社會資源﹔在印尼和墨西哥,音樂不只可以鼓舞士氣,其背後的精神也可以啟發凝聚社區力量的新方向。

社區營造從來不仰賴政府支持,我們可以重新找到掌握自己生活的出路。

 

本觀映線索包括:《街坊punk友》  《廣場以外》  《找回眾聲的名字》 《跨步放歌:一個hip-hop女生的自述》 《我家住在康樂里》 《衙前圍村》

upon growing social unrest, government officials recalls the myth of hong kong spirits – “one for all, all for one", the “spirit below the lion rock". individual effort is said to be the only factor that determines one’s fate. in another word, people were asked to fend for themselves, and not to criticize the role of the unfairly constructed social-economic structure of our society.

urban renewal and development of rural area that only aimed at constructing high value property keep destroying the organic social network of the original community, and replacing them with “screen building" and “gated society". piece by piece, public space was seized by landlords and developers. streets and parks are strictly managed by the government. free use of public space by the community is denied. organic connections amongst people are contemned and destroyed. the possibility for people to connect to each other diminished as our public space shrank.

if we still hope to preserve and explore the possibility of our way of living, we have to find our way to rebuild the field for connection.
the development of community shall never depend on the support and plan of the government. we can lead the life of our community.
