《你给的仇恨》演员采访:聚焦美国警察暴力

The hate U gave from Meiling Jin on Vimeo.

Meiling Jin:” Congratulations on the film.  With such a crazy period of time, and you are showing this film especially in Chicago, where everything was happened with Van Dyke trial, so with all of this, what voice do you think need to be heard”

“I just want the audience to be able to have the conversation with each other. You know, be able to talk, be able to understand, what are some of the issues we had, understand that our culture and experiences are different, we get to respect and honor that, we are all here as one unified home. For Starr, she goes to the idea of police brutality, and dealing with racism. She is a person who does have a white boyfriend, she does witness the shooting, but we see her how she comes out of that and challenges those around her. So we can be able to treat one or another, or heal better. ”

金美翎:“恭喜新片杀青!现在正逢政治热点疯狂的时代,那您现在把这种政治敏感的片子放在芝加哥来宣传,尤其是芝加哥警察Van Dyke一案刚刚落幕,您是想给观众留下一个什么印象呢?”

“我想让观众看后能够可以互相探讨这个热点,能够互相了解,互相找到解决的答案,了解互相的文化和经验差异。我们都需要理解对方的处境并尊重对方,我们都是一家人。片中主角Starr面对着白人警察暴行和种族歧视的困境。Starr的男友是白人,她却目击了白人警察枪毙了她的黑人好友。然而,她希望能够理性地去看待这个问题。看到她这成长的路程,我想观众们也会感化的。”

Meiling Jin, “Yeah, so I just noticed, the first letter of every word, The Hate U Give, was actually the word Thug, have you actually intentionally put it that way?”

“Yeah, the author really loved Tupac, and Tupac, in 1992, 1993 came up with that believes of philosophy… and it is so true, that is what sort of explored into the movie, is that we get to give up hate, instead of give hate, we need to give love to one or another, and we will give love, and love will come back.  And I think that’s the key, that’s what Starr finds. Why did the cop? Why there are so many police brutality out here? Why are all of these things happening? I think we need to listen to one or another, and have that understanding more.”

金美翎:“影片名字的第一个字母合在一起是THUG,这个一定是你们背后精心策划的吧?”

“此书的原作家非常喜爱嘻哈歌手图派克,在1992年左右,图派克大胆宣扬Thug(恶棍)这方面的哲学理论。在片中整个历程也是贯穿了这个思想:我们需要放弃憎恨。代替憎恨的是,我们更需要给大家温暖的关爱,这样爱才会洒满人间。片中Starr一直在寻找这些答案,为什么白人警察和黑人混混总是要较劲,为什么这么多不解之谜。事情说到底,还是尊重和妥协,大家需要互相理解。”

 

Meiling Jin, “So this is originally from the book, and how is it being alternated from the book to the movie? How did you make it into your vision?”

“I think what altered from the book was really… I love having the writer involved, Angie Thomas wrote the book. I had her here very early on for the early drafts. What I want to do is really stay close to the truth, close to the spirit of the book. Because for so many people, the book was number one for 80 weeks, and I really want it to come close. There’s one character we took out, moved a few things around. But I really try to stay close to the dynamic of that family, and makes that family really stood out.”

金美翎:“这是一部根据书改编的电影,那您都在原剧本上改了哪些内容才成为电影版本的?”

“我在改编剧本时,原作Angie Thomas也在现场。大部分的内容还在,因为我想保留原作的灵魂。因为很多书迷们都知道有一段时间这书销量保持领先第一,所以为了不让书迷失望,我的版本跟书的版本很靠近。不同之处就是去掉了一个书中人物,调整了非常小的一部分内容。因为整个Starr的家庭占事件中心,所以这个家庭元素是个重要的突出点。”

Meiling Jin, “I really dig your style, girl. So, your role in this film is very interesting, so what are you really excited about exploring your role in this film?”

Amandla, “I am very excited about exploring was the experience of coat switching, or have to present yourself differently depending on the space that you’re inhabiting, so you kind of see that in this character, also just see her, finding her power and voice. I believe that’s what really grabbed my heart when I first read it.”

Meiling Jin, “In the day and age, there are so many activisms going on, do you think being an activist in the modern days is necessary?”

Amandla, “I think it is necessary, I think when you have a platform. You are given the gift, being able to reach a lot of people. It is your responsibility to use that as well as you can. That’s why I try to integrate things that I care about with my artistry.”

金美翎:“我非常喜欢你的打扮风格。你在片中的角色非常有看点,那么你对这个人物性格的塑造是一个什么样的看法呢?”

阿曼德拉·斯坦伯格:“我认为片中人物的性格处境转换应该算是最重要的一点。在黑人区和白人区内的人物互动方式转换。观众可以察觉得到,这个人物慢慢在这种处境中成长,并学会独立处事。这也是我接这部戏的主要原因。”

金美翎:“现在的社会特别复杂,年轻的行动主义者也越来越多,你觉得现时代的行动主义是否有必要?”

阿曼德拉·斯坦伯格:“我觉得是有必要的。现在谁想要宣传什么意念都很简单很迅速。就像我们公众人物,在某些方面我们有义务去表态,通过艺术来分享大家的心声。”
