影片介紹

1970、80 年代,烏爾蘇斯(Ursus)拖拉機華沙廠工人曾多次投入抗爭,影響波蘭步向民主化。極權雖瓦解,工廠卻不敵裁員浪潮而關廠。數十年後,昔日工人頂著老邁身軀回到工廠原址,回顧勞動者與廠房生命與共的歲月。紀錄片裡除了口述歷史外,視覺和聽覺布局更是巧妙——前者,有工人肢體記憶、廢墟與周遭圍境的反差及拖拉機陣勢;後者,是模擬機器的人聲、引擎叫嚷及傳統樂器,合奏一場工人交響曲。

The Ursus factory once produced 100 tractors a day, but now half of the buildings have already been demolished by investors with new plans. The symphony of mechanical sounds and gestures that is gradually built up throughout the film is produced by former factory employees, who are proud of their factory. With nine months of recording, this film does not permit nostalgia, but offers a glimpse of an era we can no longer imagine.

導演的話

我是一名製作了幾部創意紀錄片的視覺藝術家。過去七年來,我一直與我的社會運動藝術家朋友們以及熊牌工廠的前員工們一起拍攝與創作。

當我看見前任工人們回憶著自己當時的工作過程,示範他們以前的工作內容時;雙手、雙腳和背部所展現出來的沉默舞步,拍攝這部電影的靈感也因此誕生。我發現他們的身體都還記得這些動作。《工人的交響曲》紀錄了一天之中,工廠裡工人們的工作狀態:上班、抵達現在已面目全非的工作場所,然後開始像跳舞般地做起平時工作中的動作。這些舉動「喚醒」他們曾經製造過的拖拉機,從全國各地抵達工廠,為製造者表演一段感恩之舞,並與工人們成為此地永遠的靈魂與身分的認同。

這部電影的生根為紀錄片的基底,根據人們的真實經歷來開枝散葉。但它同時也非常創新、充滿儀式性與意象。經由主角們的上班路線纏繞中,細細編織出劇本的架構。我和Igor Stokfiszewski通過劇本試鏡,最後選出十六位擁有不同技能、來自不同工作廠房、地區、年齡、性別卻又有相互關係的前工人。接下來這些工人英雄們便接受長達九個月,由編舞者拉法爾(Rafał Urbacki)及作曲者多明尼克(Dominik Strycharski)的表演訓練。

拉法爾和 多明尼克協助我們的主角們開啟他們對身體動作的自主性,並使他們熟悉自己工作的聲響,或機器在工作站裡所發出來的聲音。打從一開始,我們電影裡的作品呈現便有一項特點:我們也對主角們的手勢、動作、回憶、想望做出回應,讓文本也得以跟著成長。拍攝時每一天都令人筋疲力竭,但同時也給予我們巨大的滿足感,並且明確地感受到,我們正在看著世界崩毀的同時,也竭盡全力搶救其散落的碎片。

I am a visual artist, the maker of a number of creative documentaries. For the last seven years I and a group of my friends, who are social activist artists, have been working with the ex-employees of the Ursus Factory.

The idea for this film was born when I saw ex-labourers reminisce about their work: their arms, legs and backs did a silent dance, presenting the tasks they used to perform. I realised that their bodies still remembered. The film Symphony of the Ursus Factory captures one day of work in the plant: going to work, getting to the work station as it looks now and work itself as a kind of a performative dance. Their actions awaken the tractors they once produced, which arrive from the whole country to perform their thanksgiving dance for their makers and stay with them forever as the spirit of this place, its identity.

The film has its roots in the documentary genre, and stems from real experiences of real people. Yet, at the same time, it is creative, ritual and full of imagery. The routes to our heroes’ work intertwine, the structure of the script is finely weaved. Igor Stokfiszewski and I based the script on casting recordings, finally selecting sixteen persons of different professions, work stations, places, ages, mutual relations and sexes. The next step was nine months of intense workshops for our heroes, run by choreographer Rafał Urbacki and composer Dominik Strycharski.
