保護野生動物紀錄片“老鷹想飛” 2/27波士頓放映

『老鷹想飛』到波士頓
一部拍了23年,講述關於人與老鷹及土地深厚感情的得獎紀錄片『老鷹想飛』即將於 2016227日(星期六)下午3點,於波士頓Tufts Medical School’s Sackler Auditorium 放映,會後並將與來自台灣的本片導演梁皆得先生舉行面對面座談會。
台灣的常見猛禽老鷹曾經漫天飛舞,曾經是每個人童年遊戲「老鷹抓小雞」的主角,曾幾 何時,老鷹不見了,看不到了,在1991年,全台灣只剩下不到200隻,被公告列為珍貴稀 有保育類動物。有一位高中老師,沈振中,毅然決然辭去穩定工作,發願要花20年,為 老鷹立傳。從1992年到2012年,3858,他真的信守承諾,奉獻了人生最精華的20 年,簡樸度日,默默守護了台灣的老鷹。而自然影像工作記錄者梁皆得導演,也在一旁陪 伴,記錄了沈老師20年的行足跡。2012年,沈老師退休了,但有受到沈老師感動的新 生代研究人員繼續加入,老鷹的故事仍在繼續。
這是一部拍了23年,見證了23年台灣土地風貌變遷,老鷹生存奮鬥的紀錄片,但它其實 更跨越了時空的尺度,清楚訴生命互相關懷,愛是超越物種界線的感人故事。2015年 底在台灣上映後好評不斷,更有小學生看過之後主動寫信給知名國際企業希望他們能出錢 出力幫助老鷹,事實上本片的完成也是靠了很多願意關懷環境的公司贊助。有觀眾淚中帶 笑感謝沈老師與梁導演兩位傻子,成就了這麼一部好片。在台灣的上映期間票房破了千萬 ,但他們投注的20年光陰早使得本片成本無法估算,這部片更需要的其實是希望能讓更 多關懷土地的人好好看過,看看我們的環境,看看台灣老鷹遭遇的殘酷困境,讓觀眾陪老 鷹一起再走一次20年來的旅程,讓影片的畫面與情節觸動心裡的某個地方。

Taiwanese Wildlife Documentary “Fly, Kite Fly” Coming to Boston
Boston, Massachusetts – February 13, 2016. A documentary film about the rare Taiwanese black kite (a bird of prey) called “Fly, Kite Fly” will be shown at Tufts Medical School’s Sackler Auditorium in Boston starting 3 PM on February 27, 2016. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite at http://goo.gl/8ADJqI for $5. Children under 12 will be admitted for free. The film was directed by Taiwanese nature photographer Liang Chieh-te and produced by the Raptor Research Group of Taiwan. It won the Best Environmental Conservation Award at the 2015 Japan Wildlife Film Festival.
A group of nature enthusiasts, including members of local Taiwanese-American organizations, have brought “Fly, Kite Fly” to Boston in hopes of spreading Director Liang’s message about the universal importance of environmental and wildlife conservation. The movie has English subtitles for non-Chinese speaking attendees. There will be a Q&A session with the director, with English translation, after the film.
Film summary: When schoolteacher Shen Chen-chung noticed the disappearance of a group of black kites from Waimu Mountain in 1991, he decided to travel to Taiwan’s remaining black kite populations to study them. “Fly, Kite Fly” follows his 23-year journey to understand these birds of prey and why they have been disappearing. Black kites are doing relatively well in other Asian countries, but there are only about 200 left in Taiwan.
The event is hosted by the New England Association of Chinese Professionals (NEACP), a non- profit organization. NEACP creates a platform for professionals from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, and the US to exchange opinions and news about science and the liberal arts. Sponsors include the Harvard Meditation Club, Harvard Taiwanese Student Association, Monte Jade Science and Technology Association of New England, National Taiwan University Alumni, Silent Spring Institute, Taiwanese Association of America, Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce, Taiwanese Youth Chamber of Commerce, Tufts University School of Medicine, U-Ark America, Inc., and Wizhead.
