▲ 映後座談


李文生是牙買加客家混血兒,定居在美國,在子女眼中總是開朗做著菜的他,在鏡頭前坦露他自小與家人分離,被送回中國的經歷,以及如何在長大後決定返回牙買加,重新融入陌生的故鄉。導演江明月透過鏡頭,回顧李文生數十年的過去,道盡牙買加客家人的離散與掙扎,以及他們堅毅守護家庭的信念。

From his native Jamaica to a village in China, the journey of half-black, half-Chinese Vincent Lee began when he was only a young boy. Chinese immigrants to Jamaica in the late 1800 and early 1900s were largely men of Hakka descent from southern China. They often entered into relationships with Jamaican women as did Lee’s father. Vincent, who was sent back to China after his father died prematurely, returns to Jamaica as an adult and attempts to start a new life.

黑白照片中,一層樓的矮小平房,玻璃櫃台前不同面孔的人們交談著,屋前的牙買加式檐廊,村裡的人們吃著東西閒談著。這是牙買加農村的尋常風景,這些由華人經營的「唐鋪」,為牙買加人提供了食物、五金等民生必需品,也逐漸成為他們生活的重要據點。導演江明月以人類學的視角,透過歷史影像與牙買加雷鬼音樂,探究百年前自中國南部落腳於西印度群島的華人,如何透過一間間小店鋪,融入並影響著今日的牙買加社會。

Although the Chinese were commonly perceived as an insular group, "The Chiney Shop" explores the ways in which this ethnic minority contributed to Jamaican society. Drawing from interviews by members of the Jamaican-Chinese community and prominent Jamaicans from the diaspora, and using archival footage and photos, this film attempts to illustrate the deeply-rooted connection between Chinese shopkeepers and Jamaicans not usually portrayed in mainstream media.
