我為什麼要攝製「讓靈魂回家」紀錄片?  (胡台麗)

    對我來說,拍攝紀錄片不只是在紀錄,而是希望透過紀錄與放映,能刺激多方面的文化省思。從事人類學研究和民族誌紀錄片攝製工作以來,「讓靈魂回家」是和我工作的單位中研院民族學研究所最密切相關的一部影片。從2003年8月太巴塱部落的年輕人造訪民族所博物館開始,那時身為博物館委員會召集人的我就嗅到不尋常的氣氛。事情找上門,就發生在眼前,讓我無法視而無賭。於是,拿起攝影機不但是一種反射性的動作,也是整理思緒、觀察變化、紀錄溝通、並作自身反省的一種方式。

    以Fuday為代表的幾位登門來訪的太巴塱年輕人讓我感動。他們想透過存藏於中研院民族所博物館的Kakita’an祖屋木柱,重新找回那曾是部落中心但早已傾頹的Kakita’an祖屋、流離的祖靈和在各種外來文化衝擊下迷失的部落靈魂。他們心中想的是:要回Kakita’an祖屋木柱,在太巴塱重建Kakita’an祖屋,恢復原有的祭儀文化,重振太巴塱的精神。

 Why I was inspired to film “Returning Souls”      (Hu Tai-Li)

      Filming a documentary does not serve to simply document facts. By sharing what I have recorded, I hope to stimulate reflection in my audience on a variety of cultural issues. In all my experience performing anthropological research and filming ethnographic documentaries, “Returning Souls” has the closest links to my workplace, Academia Sinica’s Institute of Ethnology. In August 2003, when young members of the Amis tribe from Tafalong visited the Museum of Institute of Ethnology, I was Convener of the Institute’s Museum Committee. I could feel that something special had been put into motion. This story literally appeared on my doorstep and there was no way I could ignore it. Picking up a video camera is my natural reflex, but it is also an ideal tool for organizing thoughts, observing changes, recording communication, and introspection. 

      I was truly moved by the group of young Amis from Tafalong, led by Fuday. They came to request the return of wooden pillars from the Kakita’an family ancestral house that are preserved in the Institute’s museum. By bringing the pillars home, they hoped to restore the soul of their village that had been eaten away by the destruction of the Kakita’an ancestral house, the displacement of their ancestors’ souls, and the impact of outside culture on their way of life. If we can just bring back the pillars and rebuild the Kakita’an ancestral house, they thought, we can recapture our culture and rituals and revitalize the spirit of Tafalong.
