Walking in Bangkok | Reappearing in the old town, the charming Chinese-Thai mixed-race in Chinatown Lane

By
Strolling through the streets of Bangkok, you can see the traditional Thai style, the splendid temple palace, the pillars of the epic plot of Ramayana, and the floating people on the Chao Phraya River. In addition, this "City of Angels" has never been colonized, but has unexpectedly become a confluence of cultures of various countries; the horseshoe arches built from the ancient Roman architecture pay tribute to the gorgeous decoration of Victorian architecture - this Everything was the result of a large influx of people from all over the 19th century. These diverse architectural aesthetics have been passed down to the present day. After the reinterpretation of the traditional architectural vocabulary of Southeast Asia, the design energy broke out. It has not only become the emerging aesthetic indicator in Asia, but now it is a unique cultural scene in Bangkok. In addition to the Western colonial architecture, the popular Chinatown in Bangkok, which has been popular in recent years, is always reminiscent of the old and new atmosphere of Taipei's Dadaotun and Dihua Street. Take Yaowarat Road as the main thoroughfare and all the way to Charoen Krung Road. The sights are all densely populated shop townhouses, including the function space of the market, restaurants, theaters, etc. Chinese-style residences, with their nostalgic and grassroots Chinese style, have attracted many Chaoqing companies to start their business in recent years, and they have made their mark on Soi Nana (reviewing Huafang Coffee Shop, ONEDAY WALLFLOWERS & NANA COFFEE). The newly-recognized old-fashioned tenement houses have opened their doors on the streets. These Peugeot-style "Chinese-Thai mixed-races" have unexpectedly become stunning flowers in the old city.

The first affair out of Hua Lamphong is the home of the corner of Soi Nana Lane. - "103 Bed and Brews". In the past, when new thinking had not yet entered the region, the Chinese street was mostly a market for daily trading of Chinese people, among which the Chinese medicine shop was the most prosperous; and the former site of 103 Bed and Brews was a Chinese medicine shop specializing in the import of traditional herbs. From the Chinese iron gates at the door, to the wooden window frames, carved round chairs and bamboo curtains, and even the Chinese-style floor tiles painted in Portugal, the details of the space show the traces of the life of Chinese businessmen. The owner cleverly retains the old soul of the Chinese-style architecture, and does not trace the details of Thai contemporary art, giving 103 Bed and Brews a mix of Chinese and Thai blood.

Retaining traditional fine craftsmanship: Shanghai’s gossip girl Zhou Wei’s old artifact pursuit tour

By

Zhou Wei and our café in Nanjing East Road, the most popular neighborhood in Shanghai, are filled with a Chinese gossip and she is full of love. The inner heart is full of old souls full of love for traditional groceries. After leaving the company in 2011, which was upside down and full of fast fashion, Zhou Wei decided to listen to her own voice, leave the air-conditioned room, walk out of the high-rise jungle in the city, and start her field trip to find traditional hand-made objects. Unlike the e-commerce or brand of the new generation, you can find the traces by easily entering keywords on the Internet. Traditional handicraft workshops or old grocery stores are only in the most simple way to be embedded in life and real lanes, want to find them. The only way is to walk to the door of the shop in person. "You must not drive because you have missed a few alleys in the village." Zhou Xiao smiled and shared the experience accumulated over the years. "The best way. It is to take a long-distance bus, and each station gets off the train and drills into the lane to find a circle." At the same time of the visit, Zhou Hao also bought it, often ending the day, and also carrying a small basket carrying a bamboo basket, straw hat and earthen bag. Waiting for someone else's seemingly inconspicuous, but satisfying loot to return home. Although only the Greater Shanghai area is used as a field, the difference between the generations and the dialects of the villages often makes Zhou Yi impressed. "There was a time when the Fengxian District near the seaside encountered an entire family of aunts who were weaving. They were big. Sitting in the living room in a circle, chatting and weaving, although they are all Shanghainese, but the local voices they chatt with are too heavy for me to understand, but also have to send their sons to translate (laugh)." But the most What Zhou Wei was surprised at was not the difference in language, but the everyday clothes that the aunts wore and they felt ordinary. "I just saw that the aunts only had a kind of simple intimacy. When I looked closely, I found out that They don't wear the ready-to-wear clothes on the market, but the clothes made from their own hand-woven fabrics! It's too memorable." I grew up in the Shikumen alley, and I moved away until I was 18 years old. Zhou Wei’s Growing up memories are everywhere worthy of the taste of the Shanghai style. In the alley of Shanghai, there is usually a grocery store selling everything, hand-made utensils, small snacks, candied fruit, etc., even when the home phone is not popular, there is a public phone, and there is a call to find someone. The grocery store owner will open his throat and shout out who will pick up the phone, so who lives in what industry, the neighbors are familiar with each other. "Everyone knows that Shanghai people used to wear pajamas to go out. In fact, because there is no difference in privacy/public space between the old people, the old Shanghai people feel that even if they go to the grocery store, they feel that it is still my home." I said with emotion, "I have visited a grocery store in other places. After chatting, I found that a master who supplies a bamboo basket lives next door to my house, and I don’t even know it. If it was in the previous hall. It is absolutely impossible to happen." Four years ago, Zhou Yi gathered the hand-made masters and groceries visited by the field to form the book "Shanghai Grocery Shop", and continued to write the column of the same name for the "Xinmin Evening News". At the time, the hand-picked people were the youngest in their 50s, and the oldest was over 90 years old. In the past few years, Zhou Wei still visited them from time to time, but nearly 1/2 of the more than 20 grocery shops or master craftsmen. Has been closed for retirement. Zhou Wei said with a shallow smile, "What I can do is to use records to leave what they once existed. I hope that even if they gradually disappear into their daily lives, don't disappear too quickly in the memory of our generation. "." This handcrafted use is smart." Master Chen is 71 years old. I am a blacksmith. I started to learn to knock on lead (white iron) at the age of 17 and follow the teacher in the factory. I usually practice when I get off work. Later, when I was laid off, I started to pick up my own work. It has been more than 50 years now! It takes 8 hours a day now. It’s not very hard to do this. It’s hard to beat and beat, so it’s not a physical activity, but I’ve just been learning that the hand has been bleeding and the adhesive plaster is full. The sizes that are often done are already in my mind. Others are more complicated. If people have requirements, I will draw them and ask if they want this thing. There are 6 sizes like watering buckets, which can be customized according to different needs. If the hole on the head is a little smaller, the water will be poured a little farther, and if it is a little bigger, it can be poured close, and each person's request is different. I have brought three apprentices, but I have not done it now. I think this is making money slowly. The spoon used for making radish cakes and oil blocks in the store sells best, 5 yuan a day. If you have a day, you can do 50, look at the mood. On the holidays, like the Peach Blossom Festival, there are many people, and there are many foreigners. I have already made a name for myself. The business is very good. The new field is my family. Every day someone orders something with me and earns some money. Kung Fu money, eating and drinking is no problem. "Only you can sell your own, you can call it a workshop"|Yang Shifu is 70 years old, and he is a craftsman. We call this "round work" and specialize in round things. There is also a kind of "Fang Zuo", which is made of chairs and furniture. I studied art with my master at the age of 16 and now I have 50...

The art of the former erotic cinema: Madrid Sala Equis, from focusing on eroticism to showing new horizons in life

By
There is a kind of love. "Before I haven't fallen in love with you, you have already fallen in love with me." With such a romantic happiness, walking in a row of colorful houses in the blue sky of Madrid's hot sun On the streets of the encircled, when you met Sala Equis, the timeliness and love of love seemed to radiate from the building; the bricks and tiles were once carved with the smell of wind and frost until the old building met. Five young people. From 1913 to the next 20 years, the building was stationed as El Imparcial until the early 20th century, the neoclassical building and courtyard reincarnation became Duque De Alba Cinema; after the mid-1980s, it was transformed from a Hollywood classic to an art and adult film; until 2015, it was the last erotic theatre in Madrid. Despite several threats of being demolished, this last adult adult cinema in Madrid survived the glory days, accompanied the local people to spend the same time, and expressed the passions accumulated in the 30-year period. His own historical and cultural values. The third rebirth, this old building met the right people in the right time, together with a new and old love song. In order to revitalize the old buildings, they can preserve the historical significance of the past. Five young people from different fields, with their own professions and ideas, Daniel Fernández Cañadas, Laura Suárez, Cristina Rodríguez, Marie Jennings Camissa and Nacho de Padrón, a group of creative groups that assemble journalists, political scientists and restaurant operators. They teamed up with the design team Plantea Estudio to transform the abandoned cinema into a functional and vibrant complex social venue. Pass through the lobby on the first floor, such as the walkway, and browse the tickets containing all the movies, concerts, and exhibitions in "Taquilla", popcorn and drinks in the barrel, walk to the atrium "SALA PLAZA", and be spacious and bright. Shocked. In the past, it was Duque de Alba's outdoor theater. The circular seating area can accommodate up to 300 people. In addition to watching live performances, it is also a place for social and drinking. The vines that climbed up the wall and the gaze fell to the top of the steel frame. The architect, based on his original use, designed a large skylight to shed a natural light during the day; facing the projection screen, surrounded by the surrounding Beach chairs and cushions, a childlike swing descending from the roof, and uncompromisingly contrasting with the mottled walls. The calmness of the old building embraces a new laid-back atmosphere, and satisfies Sala Equis's relaxed and natural character. The original film screening hall is now used to showcase independent films and art films, continuing the erotic atmosphere of the predecessor's adult theater. A total of 55 seats of auditorium, with a gorgeous enchanting crimson velvet and brown round table for People enjoy a refreshment while enjoying a refreshing experience in the gorgeous but lazy space. In addition, there is no thought in the corridor connecting the space. There is a cocktail bar and the same texture of dark velvet. In each building, the original corner of the railing and the tiles that are stepped on each step lead the visitors to one place. The elegant corner of the comfortable nest, the slightly decadent space is full of charm and retro style. As a century-old building, Sala Equis...

Color · Love Institute | The role of not good at words, and the world of not good words: Hou Hsiao-hsien

By
color. The Institute of Emotion is such a confined space; here the eyes are black and the feet are silent, but it maintains a movie window for the color (appearance) and emotion (memory) of the world. Then write down and record its complete possibilities. For example, cruelty, such as desire, such as fragility, such as happiness, such as suspense, such as life, such as death, such as love, such as love, such as love love love. For example, the eroticism that makes people curious but can't see. "They don't know how my living room turns from white to black. They don't know how my dad works under the tin house. They don't know that my mother is riding a yellow bicycle for her own children, through heavy rain and cold winter. They don't know Heck. The story of Lux." - Angel Di Maria "The Time". Returning to the hometown, a young man told her that she was pregnant and would bear the responsibility of raising the child independently. The parents who listened to this language did not know how to express their concern. They sat in a corner until the mother could not help but speak. "Dad, let's talk about it! Just tell her!" The father just spoke of beer. He didn't say a word. No one could understand what the father couldn't say, but even the silent content didn't hinder it. The continuation of the viewing, because the wine glasses are sweating, the time is flowing, the father and the mother are all in the picture, how the other side opens, and the relationship and events of the characters appear invisibly. Hou Hsiao-hsien’s film always has such a blank, such as the father who is not good at speaking, only responding with silence, accompanied by the suspension of watching and listening; it is not necessarily a clear view, sometimes just a tree, or A face, let the time ticking over the top, let the viewer know that the wind blows, the water flows, and the personnel live in the work of life and nature. These often unseen landscapes are scattered in the gaps of the event. There is not much information except the interpretation of the background of time and space. It is like a suffix. There is no logical or semantic association. No one knows why it started and where it ends, but Know that there is a description, seeing, listening to, the physical existence of the physical. In this world that is not good at word language, everything seems to be digressing, allowing the viewer to deviate from the subjective guidance and return to the outside of the dispersion, but if you can find the curiosity that is sent, the story will continue to appear in its appearance. There are traces of memory and occasional fun, inviting to pry into the senses, to be in the moment of the record of photography, with the same feelings, the same understanding, to return to the real complexity. Every scene that appears there is waiting to be confirmed. Even if it is ordinary, as in the daily life, when the viewer feels involved, the phenomenon collected will be transformed into itself by the positioning and reorganization of the story intention. The "memorial" that I have experienced, with personal memory and understanding, under the effect of time condensing, to understand the connection outside the eyes. This connection may or may not coincide with the author's intentions, but each occurrence of the observation is a testimony to the existence of the self and others, witnessing the joy and joy of opportunity, witnessing the passing of life, staying will continue It’s vivid to go down.

Design Institute │ Make the furniture stolen from the museum into furniture? Sebastian Errazuriz Humor x Aesthetics Formula

By
Author / Alice Chan, Sia. Design and art have always been the channel to interpret visual aesthetics. In addition to the outline and appearance of the work, it is perhaps the physics of the artist and the designer to think and perceive the meaning and structure of life. And even emotional experiments. It can be as pure as meditation, or it can be neurotic-like and frenzied; through the creators to smash or stack ideas in the brain, through different experiences and understanding, to establish a unique thinking and world view. Sebastian Errazuriz, who was born in Chile and now settles in New York, travels in both art and design. He can be called a speculative artist. He can also say that his works are transforming artistic expressions into design vocabulary. In the seemingly minimalist studio, there is a neat design logic, and there are hidden personal details of the game; the neon works of "I LOVE YOU/ I LOVED YOU" on the wall are covered in words. Emotions, but full of humor and irony. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. Responding to the above explanation of his creation, Errazuriz's own creation, as if the algorithm is automatically activated, reorganizes the abstract and non-physical knowledge and thoughts around the existentialism, psychology, politics, and social issues, or from the Renaissance. The angle of the period cuts into an elegant formula that breaks through the framework without losing visual impact. "Life is very short. When faced with death, why not bring style into life and scream at heaven." He is not obscuring the boundaries between art and design. He just enters these two fields with his own desires. To turn the pictures and even the inner thoughts that we have seen in our lives into a visual experience and story.

Whether it is the British Museum, the Louvre or the Vatican, the statue that is ruined by war or against time, "we will naturally think They are going to protect and rebuild them.” However, for the purpose of reconstruction and protection, there is also a gap between these works of art and people.

Who said that age will defeat a fun soul? This company only signed models that were over 45 years old and white and gray.

By

In today's fast-paced "Instagram era," we are always prone to the rhythm of the Internet, and some people even pay attention to the price of "beauty first." Can the value of the face really be justice? One day, we will say goodbye to the younger look. How do we face the next life? The good-looking skin is the same, the interesting soul is one of the best, and the age never wins a funny soul. In the fashion circles that have been advertised as "young is competitive" in recent years, there are more and more "story" faces. They have never been embarrassed by age, and even have more vitality and confidence than young people. Review INSPIRATION| Grandma's fashion revolution, "ADVANCED STYLE"). What is it that breaks our established understanding of age, and fashion is no longer the privilege of young people? The company only signed models over 45 years old. Originally, Russian photographer Igor Gavar wanted to open a blog, and like most street photographers, recorded young people who were bold and trendy. However, he is attracted by the graceful and gentle temperament of some older faces – they are no longer younger but have a stronger field than younger people. So in 2011, Igor Gavar launched a street-shooting project that specifically recorded the wear of the elderly and updated it on his blog "Oldushka." I didn't expect these photos to get a lot of sharing and recognition on the social networking site, which also gave him an idea - or simply provide a better display platform for the fashion old people? In March 2016, model economy company Oldushka was formally established. Oldushka generally only sign models over the age of 60 - except for a 45-year-old male model, Sergey Arctica, "because he looks older than the actual age." Igor Gavar said that the average age of models in Oldushka is 67, the most The older is 80 years old. What magic do they have, let people even look forward to the one who is no longer young? In December 2017, Oldushka was the youngest (and most popular) male model...

The two square-like characters seemed to be stable and stable, and the inside was actually a sensory driving force.

Whale Circus | Tonight's Collection: The Nightmare, The Rope of Doom, The Grievance

By
The film "Hereditary" is a highly regarded and highly original work of this year. The chain of spectacles, the horror of sight and hearing, the atmosphere is quite in place. On the surface, this is actually a simple occult story. The general idea is that the grandmother in the family believes in cults. The teachings of cults are sacrificed to the "King of the Kings" by the living body, so that the soul of the king can be in the form of flesh. Entering the world. Anne, the heroine of Toni Collette, her father and her brother died because of the body being taken by the mother to the king of the king, and the pain of being trapped in the same body as another soul. Then the mother moved her brain to the grandson who was about to be born. Anne, who was pregnant, tried to abort for this. After giving birth, the family was as far away as possible from the mother. I did not expect the second child to be targeted by the mother. After that, the mother and daughter died one after another, and the whole family was shrouded in a strange shadow different from the general sadness, because the king of the king borrowed the dead body to live in the world and continued to lick the body of Anne's son. However, according to the traditional story of cults, spells, believers and other stories, the "responsibility" is not so fluent, but more concealed and jumping, thus providing a broader space for thinking. The "hereditary" of the film's original film name is hereditary and inherited from generation to generation. It means that the grandmother imposes this ritual sacrifice ceremony on the generation and the next generation, but for me, it also opens a kind of "vertical vertical. The image of the body - as the body can be used as a container, depending on the needs of worship, the specific soul fills and continues to switch, the town also opens one mouth after another, letting a fate toward the dark sublime among them. The plot of "resentment" is clearly linear, but it gradually becomes a nightmare existence, because the doom of this cascading inheritance is not just a problem faced by a single individual or family. When the enchantment of immortality and sublimity is awakened and encouraged, all those who think they are on the side of their own self-hypnosis contribute a twist that looks like eternal. In other words, when we realize that life will always wither, we will let ourselves change and grow old with the world. Everything seems calm and even. But when people think that they are beyond this law, they will make themselves a cohesive and independent. The state of affairs, the ordinary daily landscape has also begun to become abruptly fluctuating, becoming a patchwork of countless fragments (author Ari Aster categorically, violently, arbitrarily cut off, skipping the scene, the real pen). The ghost of "sorrow" is not really the occult classic that is a bit too hardcore, but the invisible vision of a random shuttle in the quiet town. Explain in the plot, that is the vision that the person was possessed by the king, and the burning eyes that the believer realized that the king of the king was betting, but I felt more, easily agree, fall into The reason for those visions is that they are not fascinated by cults. Instead, they are fascinated by cults, but compared to the day-to-day, dry, dry, the "a certain height" of the film provides the origin of all meanings, with great suction. And every infected person will continue to pass on this confusion. The original set of hereditary or just bloody as a downstream rope of doom, but the film's direction is not to close, to escape the huge ominous, but to half-push and enjoy the land more and more, let the shadow cover from top to bottom, blockade. As a result, the dull house was officially transformed into the elegant bricks and tiles on Anne's workbench. The indifferent years of the house were also stopped one frame at a time: the broken bird, the hanging at the bottom of the tree house, Fireball in the living room, every corridor and the attic, every boring work to work, the morning fainting of school, everyone who died and who has a birthday, finally gathered, was seriously collected a big book, even if It is a collection of evil. In the movie, the boy’s class discusses tragedy. Is there no choice for tragedy? Where is the option, but how can it not form the correct one? Is this a tragedy? I have already seen the fall in front of it, and I still can’t go straight. Is this a tragedy? "Stalls" is not a dialectic of tragedy, but to show that tragedy is also summoned - an invisible height filled with power and charm, it tempts you to sacrifice everything to exchange, even more than eternal Good things are meaning.

The creator picks up the film | "After watching a movie, I get a huge soothing", actor Wen Yuling

By
At the beginning of the 2018 Taipei Film Festival, Polysh invited several creators who love to watch movies in the fields of writing, music and performing arts to talk about their "movie love" and share how they "watch movies." In the "Last Poetry", Li Xiaoping, who faces the struggle and helplessness of the contemporary youth, and dials his own self-disciplinary desires and emotions in the predicament; is in the "Blood Goddess of Mercy", with a girl's heart, a smile, a friend, but a love Perseverance to the almost simple Lin Biao; is the "Miracle's Daughter", full of sense of justice, has something to say, but does not consciously oppress Chen Yuxi who hurts dear people. The scene appeared in different frames, Wen Yuling's outlines in various movies and dramas were always clear; I don't know why, those unforgettable and impressive characters always have a tragic color. Known as a new generation of genius actors, she is unquestionable to perform her talents; however, thinking about the tragic color in the role, how to present the contradictions in three dimensions, but never to treat it in a flat and single way with the word "talent" . Interview with Yu Ling is like a brainstorming and challenging. Within an hour, I kept talking about the understanding and moving of the "film" media. She almost did her best to "consciously" go to the movies. As a result, it became clear that in addition to her talents, another part of the performance of the performance of the role, but also from her dedication, repeated from image thinking to their own creation, a serious collision spark; spark never burned Do, branded as the soul and flesh of the figure in the screen. At the age of 25, facing the world's curiosity with this age, the eagerness to eagerly casts on the face of the film – whether as an audience or as a performer. This time we talked to her about everything she wanted to share about the movie, and this year's Taipei Film Festival, there are several works she is looking forward to. Watching movies is an inspiration and nutrient, and it is a comfort to life. I remember that the director once said a word: "The film is a light in the dark. I have always been impressed by the meaning of it. It's like having a nightmare in the morning, or having a lot of unhappiness in life, but after watching a movie or watching a lot of movies intensively, you get a huge relief. Wen Yuling, Scorpio, O-type, track and field team, harmonica. Watching movies is an inspiration and nutrient, and it is a comfort to life.

It's like having a nightmare in the morning, or having a lot of unhappiness in life, but after watching a movie or watching a lot of movies intensively, you get a huge relief. "Inspired by the film, learn the feelings, get comforted, and then trigger thinking and self-discipline." It is not from the question and answer of the typical interview. Yu Ling thinks from the perspective of the filmmaker as a medium for the performance of the film. , positioning the film in the coordinates of her life. "Remember that in the Netflix album "The Madden Women's Prison", there is a paragraph about "Life" that is very good: people think that they live in such a world, get used to their homes, get used to eating, and get used to friends, family and pets around them. All the habits are actually a kind of non-stop "repetition"." In this repetition of the cycle, she consciously challenges the "taken for the sake of being". "As an actor, a creator, I feel that many things must always be I keep thinking of ways to "restart". Just like in life, I am still in the same place, or just staying in Taiwan; I want to go to the new destination from where I was. Because there are still many things in this world, I still don't understand it, and there are more experiences waiting for me to try." I know that the creative nutrients come from the accumulation of different stimuli in life, and the desire to change and try to drive myself, for Yu Ling, The "watching movie" is not a casual activity. "When watching a movie, you must remind your heart to feel or accept it," not only the vision but the The official is fully immersed in the frame. "From music, art, photography to plot, etc., try to get inspiration from different movies and learn the feelings." And the process of learning, Yu Ling laughed and said that I see myself through "one understanding my elders." "A process of knowing oneself from different angles. Like, when you start to discover a movie, you don't like it in some places, it may be a moral feeling or a work. The way it is presented, it may be reversed and negative. For example, the director is telling feminism, but you deeply feel that women are constantly being insulted in that film – and that’s how they look at things. To think and understand, "Why don't you like it," how does it feel from? - In fact, it is a process of dialectical and understanding of oneself." In addition to understanding yourself more, I will look at it from multiple angles. It is equally important for Yan Ling to put back the influence of the film on its own performance. Many unpleasant characters, even without good-hearted plot arrangements, sometimes blame the director for personal lack or deviation. "We should practice reading a movie in many ways. For my own sake, the public My impression is that I love life; but if I perform a role of animal cruelty, what is the reason for this?" Behind this unpleasant, even malicious plot, "because everyone feels shameful, bad, controversial I dare not say or do it, but maybe it is what really happened. If there is no such role or plot to present, is it that the representative is not seen, and people are lucky to think that it does not exist?" By interpreting similar roles Or participate in similar works, to speak for specific topics, to raise awareness of the discussion, but another meaning is gentle, "I think it is "find redemption"! Whether it is a reconciliation with a certain part, or some forgiveness My own process." This profound understanding comes from the ambassador of the Taipei Film Festival last year, and Yu Ling and his friends watched the classic reproduce Yuan Li, director Michael Haneke's "Big People". "Because my friends have different opinions and I don't like this movie, I am even angry when I read it, but my point of view is not the same entry point." She recalled, perhaps because of the cold and cold lens with no mercy. The plot makes people feel cold and ruthless, and even emphasizes "evil". It is both aggressive and provocative to the audience. "But I believe that Michael Haneke loves movies so much. His interpretation of human nature is actually in the world. There is "goodness". It is only that the way he watches "goodness" is to use "evil" to compare. If we don't discuss the darkness of human nature, it seems that there is no way to fully tell the bright side of human nature." "Happy People", Michael Haneke. This profound understanding comes from the role of the ambassador of the Taipei Film Festival last year. Yu Ling and his friends watched the classic re-enactment unit, director Michael Haneke's "Big People". "Because my friends have different opinions and I don't like this movie, I am even angry when I read it, but my point of view is not the same entry point." She recalled, perhaps because of the cold and cold lens with no mercy. The plot makes people feel cold and ruthless, and even emphasizes "evil". It is both aggressive and provocative to the audience. "But I believe that Michael Haneke loves movies so much. His interpretation of human nature is actually in the world. There is "goodness". It is only that the way he watches "goodness" is to use "evil" to compare. If we don't discuss the darkness of human nature, it seems that there is no way to fully explain the bright side of human nature." Because of this, " Watching movies by yourself is very important to Yan Ling. "When the masses are quick to be interested in one thing and then quickly feel it, they don't really understand themselves! I don't know what direction I am heading or what I really support. However, if I watch the process, I will not talk about myself. I will find that I tend to be certain subjects or feelings, which means that such things will stimulate myself." With a firm and even strong tone, she smiled and replied. Therefore, at this year's Taipei Film Festival, Yu Ling has watched many works alone, throwing himself into and enjoying it without any interference, and then depositing, digesting and thinking, and even this conversation. Even if it is sharp, it is full of opinions and strength. When I fell in love with movies, "Erga Variations" used to find inspiration in various creative media. From the time when Yu Ling was a child, "I liked comics and movies when I was a child, and even liked to go to a comic shop to work. At that time I thought I could I was the first to watch new comics and movie DVDs, and later discovered that employees can't borrow new movies (laughs). Since then, she has accumulated a lot of knowledge about movies. And when it comes to the moment when I really fell in love with the movie, "Probably the "European Variations" I saw when I was 16 years old, that film has been around for a while, and I like the director Lars von Trier because of this work." "It's hard to explain how it feels to me. In fact, the whole tone is very dark, and it is presented in the form of a stage play. When the story begins to come up in the middle and late stages, I clearly feel the feeling of "pain"." Yan Ling recalled, " Even if I feel "pain" deeply, "Erga Variations" opens my curiosity about the film. I started to think that watching movies is very interesting. So I became a fanatic moviemaker for a while." The habit of watching movies intensively, the film is much more interesting, and always encounters works that collide with other creative media, such as films adapted from novels, which also triggers the repetitive dialectic and reflection of Yu Ling in the image and in the plot. "Like the recent "Burning Love", the inspiration came from Haruki Murakami's "Burning Barn" in "Firefly", but basically the film and the book are two different contents. Later I went to see Murakami. Chunshu’s short stories seem to be accumulating, reviewing, and comprehending.” Talking about the spark of literature and film, Yu Ling is talking about it. Because of his study of Russian, he also spent a lot of effort on Russian films and literary works. Explore it. Film and literature have such appeal to me. I will fully believe in the world that the creator has made, and from a life of immutability, find a driving force that will keep me moving forward. "Russian well-known great writer Gogol, the work has always been very magical and realistic, like the story of getting up the nose the next day, running away from home, running on the road, etc., writing something full of imagination to make it difficult to use logic to infer. However, I went to Russia for ten months and found that Russians value the reality and don't trust the things about imagination. But even so, even if they don't really believe what he wrote, they still admire Gogol. Works. Reflected in their film works, there are also many Russian creators who continue to shoot imaginative works." And these imaginary worlds - whether they are played between frames or pages, "I actually believe These worlds also feel that these worlds have a certain meaning." 2018 Taipei Film Festival's expected work "Big Pepper Doctor" | Mizoguchi Kenji | 2018 Taipei Film Festival "Classic Reappearance".

This is perhaps the most enviable job in the world: photographers in those gardens

By

When the flowers dyed the world with fresh and transparent colors, a visual feast for the spring and summer seasons emerged spontaneously, which is straightforward and indescribable. The garden is a miracle created by nature and mankind. For photographers, the garden is a great target and amusement park. In the lens of a hundred photographers, there are a hundred different gardens. From the famous Monet Garden, to the Columbia Street Flower Market in London, to the private gardens on the street... What do photographers who like to linger in the flower group see what kind of scenery? The healing power in the flower house | Samuel Zeller I like things that seem less interesting, what we see but don't look at. In the "Botanical" series by Swedish photographer Samuel Zeller, she features a variety of exotic flowers in the greenhouses of Paris, Prague, Glasgow and Geneva. This project originated from a normal afternoon in the spring. Samuel Zeller happened to pass through a flower room, and when the glass door was pushed open, the subtle light slammed into the air, and the warm, moist plant aroma rushed in. This scene made her instantly sensitive, and slowly, she found the fatigue And the pressure has also dissipated. Since then, she has begun to consciously photograph such flowery photos with curative effects, like plant watercolors. The plants behind the frosted glass seem to be attached with a layer of natural filters to create a beauty that is between the real and the virtual. People at Columbia Road Flower Market | Kiyotaka Hatanaka The plants in each person's arms symbolize the happiness of tomorrow. I want to capture this flashing moment. Japanese photographer Kiyotaka Hatanaka lives in London, and his favorite thing to do on weekends is to go to the Columbia open-air flower market in East London. From the last century, the open-air flower market will be open every Sunday, and people from all over the world gather here for afternoon tea, talk and laugh, and then the plants holding the big bags are happy and full. Hatanaka's first Zing "Columbia Road Flower Market" began with such a happy theme. He spent a year shooting these flowers, including children, the elderly, and a family of three or a couple. And this Zine is also like these uncarved, free-growing plants, full of earthy hand feeling. Visit the gardens of Monet | Stephen Shore ...
