Synopsis

“My Voice, My Life,” a Hong Kong documentary directed by Oscar winner Ruby Yang, chronicles the trials and tribulations of a group of underprivileged middle and high school students as they underwent six months of vigorous training to produce a musical on stage. A life-affirming journey of self-discovery and growth, the stories of these young people will challenge every parent, teacher and policy maker to reflect on our way of nurturing the young.

今天社会追捧高学历及专业资格,但做人应有的品格呢?L plus H Creations Foundation 去年邀请八十位来自四间被视为弱势学校的中学生,参与演出一个糅合品格与艺术教育的音乐剧。《争气》这部电影,便是由彩排首天开始,一直记录这班年轻人生命蜕变成长的历程。失去视力一年的子诺,因为参加了这齣音乐剧,获得比健视时更辽阔的目光,孕育出前所未有的勇气去迎接往后一辈子的黑暗。从不认错、一直与父母不咬弦的肥然,公演后竟在后台主动向爸爸诉说心底话。多年来屡教父母师长失望的阿博,台上用心的演出终令父母为他感到骄傲落泪。试过辍学,做人欠缺目标的Jessica,自动自觉每天朝十晚六排练到筋疲力竭,重新定下对自己的要求。在一个长达半年、严谨而专业的音乐剧训练中,他们的毅力、专注力、待人及处事态度受到前所未有的冲击,从而经历一次生命蜕变的成长旅程。《争气》是一齣由奥斯卡金像奖纪录片得主杨紫烨执导、 L plus H Creations Foundation 出品、利希慎基金联合出品的感人励志电影。
