Preface
Pick up the fragments of time export Yichen rational to pursue the development path of Chinese female documentary is a difficult thing. They like debris, in the long time are submerged in the men centered background. People are used to the discourse hegemony of men, accustomed to the absence of female, until the 90's of the last century, a group of brave and strong female documentary filmmaker was born, the silence was broken. The memory of the moment is worth if you go back to 1990 and China documentaries, you will find that in today's world is a documentary Waner level characters have emerged at the time: Wu Wenguang completed the "wandering" and "Beijing home", Jiang Yue completed "the other shore", Duan Jinchuan and Zhang Yuan completed the "Plaza". "New documentary movement" is carried out in full swing, independent production and independent creative ideas become this batch of new documentary about a topic. Also in 1990, appeared almost simultaneously with the "street Beijing" documentary "in search of Cobra", is a bit like Wu Wenguang from Yunnan female director Liu Xiaojin. Similar to "stray Beijing", this piece of locking the cultural elite, not only to track a female artists struggle, more meaningful is to explore women's dream and the metropolitan cultural relations. This works in today has basically no mention, if not in an article was talked about, we won't know it's there. Don't know "Cobra" can become a female in the new documentary for the mountains, at least we know, in 1989 as the watershed of "new documentary movement" amid the rise of male directors present at the same time, the female director is present. Then the writing of "new documentary movement" of the people, mostly forgotten two women: Ji Dan and Feng Yan. In fact, as early as 1994, in the DV era before returning from Japan to them, have begun to use small cameras (was only Hi8) began their documentary film creation, and their work was not until 2000 that more people know and recognition. Only in the "new documentary movement" is the book a is Li Hong and her "back to the Phoenix Bridge". Li Hong is considered to be "the only female voice", to fill the "aphasia women since new documentary movement", she finished in 1997, "back to the Phoenix Bridge", Lv Xinyu was known as the "female perspective" good works. In "back to the Phoenix Bridge", Li Hong focused on a few from the countryside to the girl and the fate of urban fighting, shows a distinct from the male director female position. This position has highlighted in this scene: at night, at a small nanny room, self describing a rural girl on his memorable love do, this moment let Li Hong insight to the same as the woman, things in common between her and the baby sitter: self, emotional search. It was at this moment, Li Hong captured the works of the soul: Reflections on the fate of women. If the graduated from the Beijing Broadcasting Institute, spent six years as a director in the TV's Li Hong, has a professional background for many years, so in 1999 the "dark horse" Yang Tianyi, is a complete absence of received image training actor. Her "old man" as the first DV documentary works concern, for some men documentary predecessors elitist who really is a fatal blow. It is a not from the elite group, also has never been involved in film and television girl, with a woman's intuition, kind-hearted and persistent finish a male documentary works of predecessors compared favorably with the documentary. The documentary elite status and the male dominated hegemony was shaken overnight. As Wu Wenguang said: "like the female movie, for those of us who hit men documentary is major, in the end should reflect on our machines, most of their own eyes to things is forehead behind a mass of nation historical responsibility, blind to the fog." Before and after 2000, the poet Tang Danhong, television director Ying Weiwei, actor Wang Fen, due to the different background of women directors have boarded the documentary China stage. Their works unanimously agreed to pay attention to life, attention to humanity and emotion, focus on the family face, collective show a relatively complete picture of female documentaries, the female documentaries creation to a small climax, from the theme, from the artistic expression, eventually completed the really belongs to the image of the woman. Tang Danhong's "the Nightingale" is not the only voice, three artists history of soul fragments, among them, Tang Danhong brave Americans themselves; Wang Fen's "not happy more than one" and Yang Tianyi's "home video", are at the scene of his family, the former is the search for their parents pain marriage, the latter triedThe mystery of his parents divorced when young; the British do not "box", the poetic lens, line drawing style concise, sketch out the closed world of lesbian beautiful, pure, paradise, two women will find true love, this pain, hard and brave to open the heart "the box",. The emergence of these women documentary filmmaker, and DV hot popular inadvertently echoes, and characteristics of DV and the women documentary theme is very suit, so with DV heat, female directors as a group are increasingly clear. In 1994 the documentary film creation Tong Li, as has been obtained within the system, as the individual has been flooded, until her "an HIV infected persons" won the best documentary on Asian Television Awards, she began to be more people outside the industry familiar with the. Some female film director is also concerned about the documentary, Ning Ying shot "journey of hope", Peng Xiaolian and Ogawa Shinsuke co wrote "kakis Rouges", in his documentary "the girl" knock on the door of the Hongkong film industry Huang Zhenzhen, is home to the entertainment has to documentary film. Of course, there are Cao Fei from the Academy of Fine Arts in her out of the documentary, "Sanyuanli" is a domestic female documentaries of the alternative. It is a group of women, constitute a complete picture of female Chinese documentary director colorful. Entangled life experience for the female documentary filmmaker, experience of life often becomes the direct motivation of their first film. Careful analysis, most of the female director is often because of their inner entanglement and pick up the camera, which in the Li Hong, Yang Tianyi, Tang Danhong, Wang Fen, the British not works have a clear statement that the indelible life color obsession and want to strike can not, they tried to appeal, they trying to explain, they try to break. Female director intuitively at the most secret of his heart, these irreplaceable emotion experience is often the women most true inner part, and this kind of experience way of expression often with poetry or prose mumbling and diary writing color. In fact, for Li Hong, "back to the Phoenix Bridge" the most fundamental significance lies in: it completed a experiences pale city girl, unconventional to another kind of shocked her life a quite different from his own life experience experience. As Li Hong himself said, making the film, I was my own. For Li Hong, her without any setbacks in life to make her think she never really lived, so by taking several from rural to urban girl, living someone else's life so she can really live a. This is significant for Li Hong. For Tang Danhong, his childhood when his father left her nightmare, like a strong background, penetration in the depths of her life, she cannot escape until suffering from depression. Brave Tang Danhong, in "the nightingale is not the only voice", boldly open the entanglement she has long been the childhood experiences, the intense questioning his father as "a process of cleaning process on her beaten". Tang Danhong said that filming this documentary is like doing a "pathological"; Zhai Yongming says she is "squeeze pus sores in the same" to squeeze the parents and himself in the dark and cruel, and bite the bullet to let the world see this surgical procedure. Liquidation father, this seemingly deviant behavior is another kind of pain for Tang Danhong, Tang Danhong called "in order to free". Anyway, this is a face pain, and pain. Start. Effects of growth experience and family relations on female documentary film creation, in the Yang Tianyi and Wang Fen expressed more directly. The breakup of the family and family relations distortions, is always wipe their lives not to shadow. Wang Fen attempts to "not happy more than one" untie many years entangled in the heart knot: why parents will be so painful to live together? Yang Tianyi's "home video" more like a Bergman style indoor theater, it makes people feel the pain. For Yang Tianyi, the parents divorced, the truth is a mystery, and the home of each person heart their answers. In fact, to explore the truth or not is not important, no matter whether Yang Tianyi in "home video" untie the riddle, parental divorce are inevitably affected her now, in her own marriage before the loss of life. There is no doubt that the female documentary director this myself, facing the emotional behavior, greatly impact the long form that emphasizes social groups, focus on ideology, pay attention to the far-reaching documentary film creation, but also greatly impact the male documentary filmmaker that focuses on social responsibility and historical discourse of "hypocrisy". Although most of the male on the female director works adopted a kind of attitude, not at, but it is still difficult to hinder them in the history of the development of Chinese documentary is a Book of color. In fact, in these seemingly individual, seemingly privacy, seemingly trivial behind bears great eternal theme: life and love. These living most of the life, the pain the most true these life idealism idealism can be ignored 7 brilliant, female documentary filmmaker who another strong color. In their works, often present with their ideal of life, the yearning, hope to achieve, can not be achieved. It may be a return to natural life style expectation, it is a kind of a dream unrealized extension, it may be a liability by the growth in given. Although the ideal results are often false, but the pursuit of idealism often become the great power to an immeasurable. In College Ji Dan went to Tibet again, where Ji Dan have a never had the experience, religious gave her feelings for the first time, a lot of things. This experience for many years after her again to find where idealistic origin. Concerned about the Tibet nearly ten years is a romantic follow season Dan, and in the following in the documentary seemed a by-product. "His happy life", is the season of Dan paradise, we also can be understood as, in season Dan called "look good" this family, Ji Dan hopes herFar from modern civilization, reply pastoral ideal. Ji Dan said that if the happiness of life represents the peace and satisfaction, if happy life means full of confidence and inner peace, to the future then, Kampot is happy. This is the season Dan ideal state of happiness. Read my economics Dr. Feng Yan in Japan, once the ideal is to do scholar, in the face of documentary, Feng Yan life around. Feng Yan of the Three Gorges attention over the past ten years, shooting a documentary "the dream" and "the Yangtze River woman". This seemed to be the extension of the heart of Feng Yan scholars dream, she tried to use her knowledge to explain what happens in reality, however, as Feng Yan himself said: "the economics I accepted education, awareness of environmental issues, the sociology of knowledge, has given me a lot of interference. I'm glad I persist, meet this of course should be attributed to the heroines, and I. If there is no common life that a few years later. I'm afraid so far to the Chinese farmers prejudice. As I grew into their life, my feelings to them from puzzled to sympathy, and resonate, from understanding to awe, produced a qualitative change." The cruel reality, let Feng Yan realize that human beings in the realization of material civilization at the same time, always losing things of the spirit for the price. Tong Li, very clear to carry the banner of a sense of social responsibility, which may be related to her long-term work in mainstream media, but also with her upbringing and her generation on the brand of the times. Tong Li is concerned with politics, and a social problem is closely related to the subject, she said: "I think my films should be on the development of the society. Especially my film repercussions in society so much, but you really see because it has changed the certain society, do you think your choice is quite correct, it is the happiest when." In Tong Li opinion, she is the documentary as a carrier, to realize their value, and this value is the social sense of responsibility. DV and the private English not after "box" deep feeling ground says: "DV is the liberation of women, particularly for women's liberation, hands are free and liberated soul...... Free everywhere...... The kind of free feeling makes me feel I am a little bird, I can fly, and DV is my wings." Indeed, DV light first female director can take control of the camera, but more to the point, which makes the female director to the most unusual and even the most delicate scene, or even private space. The camera at this time no longer represent the ideology and mainstream media will become the "writing" tool, of course, this is subject to participate in "writing". The image of Li Hongceng said: "DV is really like a fountain pen." Yang Tianyi film "old man", to dismiss the male photographers and recording engineer, a seemingly unintentional behavior has established a new manufacturing mode, at the same time, completely changed the relationship between the photographer and photographed person. It can be said that the emergence of the DV, create a basic condition for the appearance of female directors and female documentaries. When the female male documentary beyond the familiar visual field, on one's individual life, to the spirit and their feelings and emotions, to their most secret world, women truly has the ontology of documentary film. In several female documentaries emerged around 2000, coincidentally the emotion, family relationship, the demand of personal development, is not a coincidence, is the focus on the Chinese documentary long lack of human body as a force against the strong, although the female perspective is not much male identity. Such as Zhang Xianmin said, the female is inward, male is publicity, women should go back to the female body, return to the "box"; Wu Wenguang said: "I always had the feeling that a 'private' feminism vision into the recorded image will be China's documentary the gospel."
