Lei Yuan Bin
一部人物纪录片要怎么拍?导演如何与传主建立起互信的关系?有了这层互信关系，导 演应该无事不可对人言还是要有所保留?人物纪录片说的完全是传主的故事?还是导演 在真实的基础上说的另一个故事?在主观与客观两个极端视角之间，导演应该站在哪 里?台湾电影《曼菲》导演陈怀恩、香港电影《水底行走的人》导演陈安琪、新加坡电 影《幻境黑白》导演雷远彬，三个地方、三位导演、三部有不同挑战的人物纪录片，他 们怎么拍?过程中碰到哪些困难?一路走来有什么心得?4月28日在新加坡拉萨尔艺术学 院且听他们怎么说。
How should one approach the making of a biographical documentary? What is it that a filmmaker should look out for when building trust and interacting with their subjects? Does the story entirely belong to the subject, or is there room for interpretation from the perspective of the filmmaker? These are just some of the questions to be addressed by our panel of esteemed filmmakers, each of whom have recently made a feature length bio-documentary about contemporary artists, – namely En Chen who produced a film on the late Taiwanese dancer and choreographer Lo Man-fei, Angie Chen who made an ‘interactive documentary’ with the Hong Kong multi-hyphenate artist Yank Wong, and Lei Yuanbin who took a more experimental approach in portraying our homegrown artist Tang Ling Nah. These three filmmakers with very different approaches will share their experiences and relationships concerning their respective subjects and documentaries.
