電影簡介 About the Film

海上尋魚覓活,岸上憑歌記情。在資本掛帥的香港社會,漁民的文化被邊緣、被消失,最後只成為老人的呢喃。在被遺忘的歌聲中,導演重塑一段香港漁民的歷史。透過一首又一首的古老漁歌,書寫快將消失的記憶,留下即將離世的臉孔。導演在保育文化的同時,陪伴老漁民走最後一程,以輓歌告慰這群海上歌者。

小島之上,海風吹散老人的白髮。黎連壽口中哼著輕盈自在的漁歌:「大船拋住沱濘頭誒,舢舨送郎賴氏州呀,咪俾東風吹窒你妹娘裙尾呀,細魚投胎潡肚白呀,燈盞無油誒是黑岩……」隨興變奏,調子重覆,與海浪聲載浮載沉。海上風物,生老病死,漁歌歌者唸唸有詞。塔門黎氏靠捕魚維生,漁歌自古口耳相傳,但現在已難覓知音。黎伯生於戰前,與太太結婚六十餘年,是香港少數精通漁歌的水上人。子女無一從事漁業,也未曾經歷驚濤駭浪的生活,對父親的歌藝竟然未有所聞。

城市之中,昔日漁民黝黑皮膚仍沾滿海鹽。有人以漁歌表演,在社區教育兒童;也有人以漁歌傳道,敬拜上帝。漁歌成了這些水上人心靈的避風港,回首艱苦的前半生,竟能憶苦思甜。日子久了,漁民記憶褪色,漁歌從海上飄到岸上,沉澱成安撫心靈的淡然之音。

簡介 Brief Description

Scientifically, it is still debatable as to whether Africa is the origin of humanity. Although there are many documents that allude to this notion, others have assumed otherwise. Whether this is a myth or reality, that fact that Africa has seen its share of exodus from the continent cannot be disputed. In recent times, the migration out of Africa has assumed a new dimension. This trend is posing challenges to a continent full of resources and to destinations with historical connection either as colonialists or trade partners.

In current times, Africa has also acquired new partners like China and India with aid and trade as items of discussion in addition to its traditional partners in this new scramble for Africa. What is the situation like on the African continent? What has it got to contribute to the global commons? In fact, who are the Africans? What are the challenges and prospects for prosperity? Seen as the last frontier of development, this presentation will seek to discuss the myths, identify the realities and highlight the challenges that confront the African continent. In conclusion, the prospects and potentials of Africa as an emerging destination of note, will be discussed.
