“We cannot divide time into distinct crises when they exist simultaneously in the body.”

We are reflecting what Korean American poet Cathy Park Hong ruminates in Minor Feelings: “at what cost do I have this life? At what toll have I been granted this safety here? […] I didn’t live through any of it, but I’m still a descendant of those who had no time to recover; who had no time, nor permission, to reflect.”

We are also thinking on and expanding some of the questions Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish raises in Memory for Forgetfulness: what are the meanings of exile and loss? In a time of war– what is one’s role? how does one mourn? Can one mourn? What does one do to keep going everyday? And what is the relationship of writing and filmmaking (time & memory) to history (remembering is precisely a modality of forgetting)?

With love and rage, this short film screening brings together works by Palestinian filmmakers/artists Qais Assali, Shuruq Harb & May Marei, in the hope of offering a desire or an energy for the audience to continually ask questions, to think, to act and to imagine another world is possible.  - written by Hong-Kai Wang

我們正在反思韓裔美國詩人洪朴凱西(Cathy Park Hong)在《我受傷,故而我存在》(Minor Feelings)中所思索的:“我用什麼代價獲得了這樣的生活?我以何種代價獲得了這樣的安全……我並沒有經歷前人經歷過的,但我仍然是那些沒有時間去復原的人的後代;他們沒有時間,也沒有被允許去反省。” 

我們也在思考和擴延巴勒斯坦詩人馬哈茂德·達爾維什在《為了遺忘的記憶》(Memory for Forgetfulness)中提出的一些問題:流亡和失落的意義是什麼?在戰爭時期,作為一個人可以扮演什麼樣的角色?而寫作和拍片(時間和記憶)與歷史(記憶正是一種遺忘的方式)的關係是什麼? 懷着愛與憤怒之情,這次的短片放映匯集了巴勒斯坦電影導演/藝術家 Qais Assali、Shuruq Harb 和 May Marei 的作品,希望能够為觀眾提供一種渴望或能量,可以持續提出問題、思考、行動,並想像另一個世界是可能的。

Event Overview (BLURB for the symposium)

“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.” – Howard Zin


This symposium, "Perspectives on Palestine: Dialogues on History, Humanity, and Hope", dives into the urgent examination of the dire political and humanitarian situation in Palestine, particularly surrounding the Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip that unfolded subsequent to the "Al-Aqsa" operation conducted by Hamas on October 7, 2023.

The bombardment unleashed by Israel through land, air, and sea has ruthlessly targeted Gaza's population, inflicting catastrophic consequences with approximately 22,000 casualties, up to January 2nd, 2024, predominantly among women and children. Alarming estimates from UNRWA indicate that a million people have been displaced, precipitating a collapse in the health sector and giving rise to an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe. In the face of such devastation, we cannot turn a blind eye to the human toll on innocent lives.

We strive to foster an unwavering sense of empathy, kindle the flames of compassion, and instill a genuine desire for the well-being of every individual ensnared by the ongoing situation. Together, let us confront the harsh realities and pave the way for a future where hope triumphs over despair.


“沒有任何旗幟能大到可掩蓋殺害無辜人民的恥辱。” – 霍華德.辛
