Synergy Correlation

The NCKU Museum is hosting this year's "2023 Tainan International Human Rights Art Festival," connecting with the NCKU Library's 92nd-anniversary thematic book exhibition, "Enlightening Corners, Love Speaks Right," and inviting Director Chung-Lung Tsai of the 2022 Golden Horse Award-winning documentary "Nine Shots." On the evening of October 27th, an outdoor cinema and post-screening discussion will be held at the library's outdoor plaza, aiming to explore the messages conveyed by the film and the underlying social issues from various perspectives. The event will be moderated by Professor Chen-Chung Ku of the NCKU College of Law.


The event commenced with an introduction to the contents of the Tainan International Human Rights Art Festival series by Chia-Hsin Chen, the head of the promotion team at the NCKU Museum. Director Han-Ching Wang of the NCKU Library welcomed the participating faculty and students, taking the opportunity to invite everyone to join the 92nd-anniversary themed exhibition, "Enlightening Corners, Love Speaks Right." She encouraged collective attention to human rights issues such as homelessness and vulnerable groups in society. Additionally, she invited participation in the "Well-being: Blessings and Good Wishes" exhibition curated by the museum on the library's basement floor.


Professor Chen-Chung Ku of the NCKU College of Law stated that although this event revolves around film appreciation, its intention is to guide the audience to examine the entire incident from the perspective of observers. The goal is not only to discuss the pros and cons of both sides but also to delve into the structural issues triggered by societal systems and institutions. Professor Gu shared his experiences studying in Germany, mentioning that a group of Asians gathering and enjoying themselves in a restaurant could make locals feel scared. These reactions stem from the lack of understanding among the locals about foreigners, resulting in psychological impact. "Nine Shots" aims to present a real depiction through the documentary, exploring and discussing the collective psychological state of society.


Director Chung-Lung Tsai expressed that documentaries are highly subjective. He hopes to create a semi-open text by interviewing individuals with different perspectives, including employers, migrant workers, and intermediaries. The goal is to provide information that may not be widely known and let the audience draw their own conclusions. He mentioned, "Binary oppositions may seem simple, but prolonged binary conflicts can lead to cognitive inertia." If no one seeks to understand the reasons behind a migrant worker's escape or drug use, it may result in the mutual harm of vulnerable individuals. Director Tsai hopes that the audience will remember the "negative energy" and discomfort brought about by the film, bring it back to their real lives, and continue to embody civic spirit, working together to make society a better place. Many students also engaged in interactive exchanges with Director Tsai during the event.
The NCKU Museum's "2023 Tainan International Human Rights Art Festival" and the NCKU Library's "Enlightening Corners, Love Speaks Right" activities will continue until December. The events include various forms such as exhibitions, lectures, performances, and post-screening discussions. On November 13th, the documentary director Xian-Zhe Zhu of "Crossing Peace" will be invited to participate in a post-screening discussion. You are welcome to register and participate through the event's webpage.
