ON POETIC CINEMA AND FEMALE CINEMA 谈诗意哲理电影与女性拍电影
ON POETIC CINEMA 谈诗意哲理电影
You can think of film as a piece of education,
Most people think film could be entertainment.
But I think film could be philosophy too
I always feel filmmaker could be a poet, or can be a philosopher
or you can implement philosophic or poetic understanding of human life into your film.
And that is my pursuit actually.
That is to bring understanding of life from a philosophical point of view or perspective, and doing it in a poetic way.
ON FEMALE FILMMAKING 女性拍电影
You know I teach American Cinema and Culture,
I constantly think: “Can I just find some female filmmakers and celebrate their work”?
And of course I discovered a few of them
Next week I am going to introduce Maya Daren, who is an experimental artist,
Who is very innovative in filmmaking.
I ultimately think women have the great potential to become great filmmakers.
I think we are very sensitive, intuitive and very visual.
We think very deeply,
We should just be daring enough to endure the darkness
while we are working inside the tunnel.
Because a lot of time you are not supported financially, you are alone,
You don’t even have a family when you do this kind of work.
So therefore we should stand the test of God, of art.
so we can come out as a true artist
