飢餓是不是暴力?貧窮是不是暴力?當人民處於權力結構底層,為人民而設的改革如何成為可能?阿根廷的歷史有幾多人了解?世上有多少人對拉丁美洲的了解,是多於美國主流傳媒?弱勢人民與濫權者,是否存在「和平共存」的可能性?

熔爐時刻是火紅的六十年代的產物是導演索拉納斯和傑提諾对當時阿根廷軍人政府拉丁美洲解放運動的回應也是一篇反商業電影(第一電影)和藝術電影(第二電影)的宣言。他們提出第三電影製作和評論的新路向(簡單的說以電影合行動改變社會以情理使觀眾由被動的消費者轉化成行動者)電影成功將理論行動形式內容為一体以創新的藝術形深入分析 暴力/武力和殖民主義,對當下的香港仍然富有意義電影拍成後在阿根廷不能公映但在國際影壇刞引起巨響被冠以革命電影、「戰鬥電影等名第三電影的會議論述専書至今不絕

The Hour of the Furnaces is a product of the raging 60s. It was a response by directors Fernando E. Solanas and Octavio Getino to the Argentine military Junta and to the Latin American liberation movements. It is also a manifesto against commercial film (the First Cinema) and art film (the Second Cinema). The directors proposed the Third Cinema and new ways of making and critiquing films (In short, it integrates Film with Action to effect change in society; and to affect  audience with reason as well as emotion turning them  from passive consumers into active participants .) The film successfully blends theory, action, form and content into a brand-new art form, investigating the notions of ‘violence / armed force’ and (neo)colonialism, which are still relevant to Hong Kong today. The film was banned in Argentina. Yet it has attracted great attention in international film circle and washailed a classic of ‘revolutionary film’, ‘militant film’ and so on. There are continuous interests in the Third Cinema. Conferences, books, discourses and studies on the subject turn up from time to time since its inauguration.

現代的文明將把我們帶往何方?有限的地球資源是否可被無限地剝奪?如果我們正在慢慢製造自已的末日,現在該有什麼覺悟?如果是一些政府財團在加速我們的末日,我們又應該做什麼?即將遭受商業坎伐的山林裡的原住民說:「如果有人想強奸你母親,你會做什麼?他們現在就是要強奸我母親,這片山林就是我們的母親!」他們選擇反抗,我們呢?

END:CIV examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIVasks: “If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”

The causes underlying the collapse of civilizations are usually traced to overuse of resources. As we write this, the world is reeling from economic chaos, peak oil, climate change, environmental degradation, and political turmoil. Every day, the headlines re-hash stories of scandal and betrayal of the public trust. We don’t have to make outraged demands for the end of the current global system — it seems to be coming apart already.

But acts of courage, compassion and altruism abound, even in the most damaged places. By documenting the resilience of the people hit hardest by war and repression, and the heroism of those coming forward to confront the crisis head-on, END:CIV illuminates a way out of this all-consuming madness and into a saner future.

Backed by Jensen’s narrative, the film calls on us to act as if we truly love this land. The film trips along at a brisk pace, using music, archival footage, motion graphics, animation, slapstick and satire to deconstruct the global economic system, even as it implodes around us. END:CIV illustrates first-person stories of sacrifice and heroism with intense, emotionally-charged images that match Jensen’s poetic and intuitive approach. Scenes shot in the back country provide interludes of breathtaking natural beauty alongside clearcut evidence of horrific but commonplace destruction.

END:CIV features interviews with Paul Watson, Waziyatawin,  Gord Hill, Michael Becker, Peter Gelderloos, Lierre Keith, James Howard Kunstler, Stephanie McMillan, Qwatsinas, Rod Coronado, John Zerzan and more.
