嘉咸街市節2009
當空間還有生活
12月活動簡介

第三屆嘉咸街市節又將展開的當下,種菜的地方快被連根拔起,賣菜的地方亦將剷平,本來為人生活順暢而合理規劃的巴士總站與渡海碼頭,也會因似是而非的生財大計而物換星移,失去了秩序,扭曲了生活常規。今年,我們好該放大市集這原始支援人生活需要的經濟活動空間,更放眼我城,再去重新認識空間予人應有的生活價值。

電影:鐵怒沿線-菜園紀事

12月11日(星期五)下午6:30-8:15pm
中環結志街28號海運茶冰廳
製作:菜園村支援組、影行者 & 2009/香港/80分鐘
語言:廣東話/中文字幕
分享嘉賓:石崗菜園村關注組代表、電影製作人陳彦楷

菜園村村民爭取不遷不拆他們的家園,看似遙遠,實際上與我們息息相關。龐大的基建工程與影響全港各地的市區重建,說到底,都是一個有關生活空間被掠奪的故事。

《市集原味! 市集完未? 》 攝影展

2009年12月12日至2010年1月12日每日7am-5pm
中環結志街28號海運茶冰廳
組織: 光影作用
參與攝影師: 許行一、李永倫、李志成、李緯綸、梁仕昌、梁萬斯、謝穎豐、伍偉昌

經歷百多年的生活聚散,中環嘉咸街露天市集才從歷史和現實中累積形成。
人的活動,居民生活,商販買賣。那些人事物,空氣色彩溫度質感,交織成今時今日的露天市集。是生活使然,一切也來得自然,正是『市集原味』。
只是一句重建,一個手段,一架推土機,百年生活流動有如付諸一炬。老店關門,居民遷離。巨型怪獸般的酒店商廈和異樣老店街外,又可容得下幾多露天市集排檔生存? 當官僚商賈為樓市利益暗忖『市集完未?』之時,我們要以相片說『不!』
自零八年,『光影作用』攝影師們一直記錄香港社區的人文面貌,中環嘉咸街露天市集亦是其中之一。繼去年『市集人味』後,再以《市集原味! 市集完未? 》攝影展向大家高呼,請看看這市集是怎樣的一回事。

《市集原味! 市集完未? 》照片放映會 x 市集電影《全部售罊》

12月12日(星期六) 下午6-8pm中環結志街28號海運茶冰廳
《市集原味! 市集完未? 》照片放映會 由光影作用成員主持
《全部售罊》
製作:李健浩
片長:13分鐘
語言:廣東話/中英文字幕

本片拍攝於二零零九年三月廿九日,紀錄了嘉咸街廿九號最後一戶家庭──黃宅──遷出時的情景,黃先生及黃太太在訪問中講述了舊日的辛酸,又談起半個世紀的種種回憶,縱然艱辛,咬緊牙關卻轉眼便過,來到今天,人們說社會變得繁榮安定,然而,他們卻要無奈離開這曾陪伴走過哀樂歲月的住所、這條充滿情感回憶的老街。我們都說社會一直在向前走,事實卻是,大部份人一直都對被甩在後頭的人視而不見;《全部售罊》提供一個讓你對城市小角落注目、凝視的機會。

12月13日(星期日) 下午1:30-5:30pm中環結志街28號海運茶冰廳

Graham Street Market Festival 2009
The Market’s View of Life…
11-13 Dec 2009 Programme

To paraphrase Charles Dickens: It is the best of times for high-rises, it is the worst of times for a peaceful lifestyle: New Territory villages will soon be torn down, street markets uprooted, bus terminals and piers - long pivotal to the city’s hustle and bustle - removed, disordering the life of ordinary people. It is time, again, during the Graham Street Market Festival for us to see through the prism of Hong Kong’s oldest street market to reconsider the value of space and life and apprepreciate this unique organic space of economic activities.

(Market Photo Slideshow presented by Photosynthesis & Movie Screening) Over the Market, Market Over Yet? x Sold Out

12 Dec (Fri) 6-8pm, Hoi Wan Cafe, 28 Gage St., Central
Sold Out
Producer:Lee Kin Ho
Duration:13 minutes
Language:Cantonese /Chinese & English subtitles

This documentary, filmed on 29 March 2009, is a record of the last day of the last family - the Wong family - living at 29 Graham Street. Mr and Mrs Wong recounted the good - and bad - old days over the last 50 years, in which life was tough yet there was always a way out if one would endure. Today, while many sing the praises of society’s development and progress, this old couple is forced to leave their home housing all their happiness and sorrow, away from the old street full of memories and friendship. There is the illusion that society is progressing… Sold Out is an attempt to direct public attention to a humble story.
