60’s of 20th century was an excited era of global Rock and Roll, it influenced our generation deeply and for a long time. It was an obscure red shadow in my memory then. 30 years later, I interviewed my indistinct memory of babyhood to trace back to the voice of world when I was born.

 

The whole world was like a magnificent Rock and Roll concert at the time, numberless super stars stepped on the stage of history and crazy fans gathered to chanted names of youth idols: Mao Tsetong, Che Guevara, Martin Luther King, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Macolm X, Pol Pot, John Lennon… all of them were standing nearside of the period; and I could see a composite column under the gilded portraits of those idols, it was consisted of Red Guards in China, students of Mai Rouge Movement, Rock maniacs of Woodstock, Hippies, guerrilla in the Jungle of Latin America, Vietnam Communists, and refugees from Prague.

 

*This work was produced and edited on original historical video material, and the background music was a live version of Summer of ’69 from Bryan Adams.

片头诗篇:一九六九年夏天,我半岁/沉睡在红色的铁幕中/我是全人类的宝贝/被一种什么样的喧嚣惊醒/我的笑靥,我的欢乐之泪……

二十世纪六十年代是一个激动人心的世界摇滚时代,对我们这一代人的影响是深远而长久的。而在当时我的记忆里只是一些蒙昧的红色影子。三十多年后,我在这部作品中重访混沌的婴儿记忆,追溯在我诞生之初的世界之声。

那时候,全世界就象一场盛大的摇滚音乐会,无数巨星们登上了历史舞台,疯狂的人们聚讼着他们青春偶像荡气回肠的名字:毛泽东、切·格瓦拉、马丁·路德·金、金斯伯格、鲍勃·迪伦、X、波尔布特、约翰·列侬……他们无一例外地站立在时代的左侧;而在他们镀金的肖像下,我能看到由中国红卫兵、巴黎五月党人、伍德斯托克的摇滚狂人、嬉皮士、拉美丛林游击队、越共、布拉格流亡者等组成的联合纵队。

全片以一九六九年前后的历史画面为影象素材,重新剪辑整合。挪用了Summer of ’69的现场录音作为背景音乐。
