The SIXTH year!

第六屆白男人影展!

introduction 簡介


Welcome to the sixth edition of the White Man Film Festival, where we focus on films and videos for, by, and about the white man.

The White Man Film Festival is not simply a festival or simply about film, it is more importantly an idea – an idea to contemplate, to consider, and to mourn. 

The White Man Film Festival celebrates the diversity of the white man as he treads between knowledge and ignorance.

This festival is not one based on hate, intolerance, or bigotry of any sort, nor is it based on love or generosity. 

Our theme for the sixth edition of the White Man Film Festival is: TBA.

歡迎來到第六屆白男人影展。
我們專門播放給白種男人看的、
白種男人製作的,或是有關白種男人的電影。

白男人影展不單單只是一個影展或電影,
重要的是它的觀念-一個深思、熟慮、和哀弔的觀念。

白男人影展慶祝白種男人的多樣性,
就如同他們跨越知識與無知之間。

這個影展不基於任何形式的仇恨、
偏執或愛與寬懷。

第六屆白男人影展的主題:強迫症!

 

some assumptions 設想


Our main assumption is that a thing exists which we may call “the white man.” This thing, be it physical, metaphysical, cultural, or social, remains at the pinnacle of a centuries old and still dominant, international racial hierarchy. The notion of the “white man” is fundamental to the organization of the modern world.

One great privilege of “whiteness” is its exemption from racial categorization. In other words, “white people” are pure human beings – the standard bearers of humanity -- whereas, those of us who cannot pass for white are marked by color, by race. As the purest form of humanity, the white person, or more precisely, the white man can exemplify and promote universal human values. The non-white may only represent the interests of a locale, a race, or an ethnicity.

設想有種存在體稱為「白男人」。無論在體態上、形而上、文化上、社會上,他們依然居於歷史頂峰,並且仍然在國際間、種族階系中居於領導地位。「白男人」之概念乃現代社會的基礎

「白種人」的最大優勢是種族分類豁免權。換句話說,「白種人」是最純粹的人種、是人類的基點,而我們這些非白種人則由膚色和種族來分類。白種人是人類最純有的形式,或更確切地說,白人是促進人類普適價值之典範。非白人可能只享有特定地區、種族、後裔等利益。
