“向导” | Guide | 2015-2020

 

“向导”利用电影《向导》(1979,天山电影制片厂)作为材料,把它的两个语言版本(维吾尔语版本,汉语版本)结合,再进行重新编辑,使得片中所有人物角色说话时都使用其母语。

 

电影的维吾尔语版本中所有角色都操流利维吾尔语交流。同样的,汉语版本片中所有角色操流利汉语交流。电影中许多情节涉及语言障碍以及语言翻译的行为,类似维吾尔人听不懂汉语以及汉人听不懂维吾尔语甚至还有英国人听不懂维吾尔语的情节。但无论在哪一个语言版本中,所有角色都使用相同的配音语言却上演着语言不通的戏码。

艺术家通过重新编辑,使片中每一个角色都使用了该角色的母语配音,且不加任何翻译字幕。这样通过改变配音让表演去符合一种真实性,把情节生硬的拖入现实。这样的结果就是造成了观众无法合理观影而陷入了理解的障碍,从而可能对应了真正难以沟通的现实生活。 

 

“Guide” uses the film “Guide” (1979, Tianshan Film Studio) as material, combining its two language versions (Uighur and Chinese) and re-editing it so that all the characters speak in their native language.

The Uighur version of the original film has all the characters speaking fluently in Uighur. Similarly, the Chinese version has all the characters speaking fluent Chinese. Many episodes in the film involve language misunderstanding and acts of language translation, such as the Uyghur people not understanding Mandarin and the Chinese not understanding Uyghur, and the British not understanding Uyghur. However, in both the Uighur and Chinese versions, all the characters use the same dubbing language but play out the language barrier.

The artist re-edited the film so that each character is dubbed in that character's native language without any translated subtitles. The changes make the performances 'real' and drags the plot into reality. The result is that the audience cannot properly watch the film and be stuck in difficult of understanding, thus perhaps corresponding to a reality that is truly difficult to understand.
