Synopsis

Hualing Nieh Engle calls herself a tree, with roots in China, the trunk in Taiwan, and the many leaves in Iowa, USA. Born and raised in wartime China, she left Wuhan in 1949 for peace in Taipei, and then left for love in 1964 to the United States. She is the author of 24 books of fiction and non-fiction, which have been translated into various languages. She also initiated the International Writing Program in Iowa, USA – a world-renowned platform for writers since 1967. The co-founder was her now deceased husband, the poet Paul Engle. One Tree Three Lives is also their love story, a novelist and poet who created a strong and visible love.

人称「世界文学组织之母」的聂华苓是20世纪华人文学界最重要的推手,白先勇、林怀民、蒋勳,以及诺贝尔文学奖得主莫言,香港作家李怡、董启章、锺玲、潘耀明都曾是她家客厅的座上客。

现年八十七岁的聂华苓生於中国武汉,1949年与家人逃到台湾,后因编辑【自由中国】受白色恐怖牵连,之后赴美与丈夫 Paul Engle创办影响力庞大的爱荷华大学「国际写作计画」。通过他们的「国际写作计划」,世界各地作家越过意识形态聚集一堂。1979年,大陆、台湾和香港的作家隔绝三十载,首次相见於爱荷华。

聂华苓曾自喻为「一棵树,根在大陆,干在台湾,枝叶在爱荷华。」香港导演陈安琪花三年时间、往来两岸三地与美国,拍摄纪录片《三生三世聂华苓》。聂华苓的一生,恍如一段三生三世的飘泊旅行,交织出了当代海外杰出华人作家的清晰身影与美丽,也刻划了她和诗人伴侣保罗.安格尔至死不渝的坚定情感。
