影片介紹

高牆,劃分社會成一種內外區別的界限,作為保護內部的封閉與特權象徵,將越過牆界視為非法移民及不值得保護的「他者」。本片透過一位來自墨西哥、擁有美墨雙國籍的8歲男孩直白話語,道出他對川普美墨國界高牆的疑惑與憂蹙,同時記錄當地滑板DIY精神的極致實踐。川普的高牆與滑板人玩的弧坡碗池,雖同樣以混凝土、鐵架建構,卻有著截然相異的意象對比,也提出了對世界的疑問:當代文明究竟是往消弭族群的分歧前進,抑或倒退?

A wall divides society along the lines of "inside" and “outside” and discriminates against those who live beyond their boundaries as “Other.” This short film shows the perspective of an 8 year old American-Mexican boy and documents a diverse skate crew who decided to build a new ramp together with the same construction materials that would be used to build the alleged wall between two nations. The project is looking for a positive response to the negative rhetoric between Mexico and U.S.A. after the American presidential elections in 2016.

導演的話

《我要玩板不要牆》記錄了位於墨西哥太平洋岸上,成員間關係緊密的一個美墨滑板社群所發起的計畫。他們希望能夠為2016年美國總統大選後,美墨兩國之間被煽動起的負面情勢做出一些正面回應。於是,背景多元的成員們決定要用與美墨高牆同樣的原料,來打造一個滑板人玩的混凝土弧台。

我們設計好弧台、募集了資金後,開始從國境兩側召集了40位志工。隨著每天建造的時間過去,我們發現大家一起蓋弧台時,所做的並不只是倒倒水泥而已。我們同時也在提倡身體力行的勞動精神、年輕人的領導力,並展現給當地孩童一個正面榜樣;以寬容克服國籍與語言的鴻溝,以及分享對滑板的熱情。

集眾人之力建造這個弧台,給予當地年輕人機會去擁有更好的場地,提升滑板技巧,他們也不需要搬到大城市或跨越國境才能玩板。我們將這個社群與此計畫以紀錄片的方式呈現,使這個地區能獲得關注,讓潛在的伯樂能注意到這裡的傑出滑板人。最重要的是,我們也對於現今政治人物試圖煽動並分化我們的虛飾言論,提出了另類解決之道。

Build Ramps Not Walls (BRNW) documents a project that began with a tight knit Mexican and American skate community on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Looking for a positive response to the negative rhetoric between Mexico and the United States of America after the U.S.A. 2016 Presidential Elections, this diverse skate crew decided to come together a build a new ramp with the same construction materials that would be used to build the alleged wall between Mexico and the U.S.A.

We designed the ramp, fundraised the money and brought together a group of over 40 volunteers from both sides of the border to build. With each day of construction, we saw that by building a ramp together, the community was not just pouring concrete. We were also promoting an ethic of hard work, encouraging youth leadership, sharing positive role models for local kids, and communicating across culture and language barriers with tolerance and the shared passion of skating.

By building this ramp together, our community was opening opportunities for youth skaters in the region to improve their skills on better ramps without having to move to the big city or cross the border. We have put our skate community on the map for potential sponsors by documenting our project in a film and gaining attention for our region. Most importantly, we have offered an alternative solution to how to respond to the divisive rhetoric coming down from politicians these days.
