人权组织“功能8”(Function 8)就陈彬彬所制记录片《星国恋》的官方禁映发表声明

一条评论

星国恋
:
一个国家的历史要兼收并蓄、博采众长,方能更全面地反映事实;近期出版的书籍,如《狮爪逃生》、《新加坡1963年的冷藏行动》、《1963年二二大逮捕事件始末》、《夙愿重燃》和《敢向英殖民统治者说不》等为新加坡建国时期具有重大意义的时段,提供了不同的回想。陈彬彬的历史纪录片《星国恋》为我国的历史编写又增添新的诠释,它讲述的是留居国外的新加坡政治流亡者,而这些流亡者有些竟已离开新加坡长达50年之久。

加坡媒体发展局已宣布禁止这部影片在新加坡的公开上映,功能8 (Function 8)对此深表关注。禁止知识产品的作法诚然与新加坡作为第一世界国家的形象格格不入,它更像是中世纪时期一些统治者无知幼稚的计谋。新加坡不是说要大肆庆祝建国50周年,鼓励国人交流对话、畅所欲言吗?然而,这对话的精神实质哪里去了?

我们呼吁当局,让国人能更真实地评价国家历史,让新加坡发展成一个在人民心中具有智慧的国家,而非铁板一块的国家。

Function 8’s statement on the ban against Tan Pin Pin’s documentary, “To Singapore With Love”
The history of a nation can aim to be accurate only if various and divergent voices are heard. In recent years, books like “Escape from the Lion’s Paw”, “The 1963 Operation Coldstore in Singapore”, “We Remember”, “That We May Dream Again” and “Youth on Trial” have added other perspectives to the memory of a very significant period in Singapore’s nation-building.
Tan Pin Pin’s documentary film, “To Singapore With Love”, on Singapore’s political exiles who fled the country, some as long as 50 years ago, adds another dimension to this on-going writing of our history.
Function 8 is deeply concerned that the Media Development Authority has banned this film from being screened in Singapore. Banning of intellectual products is far from being the hallmark of a first-world country; it smacks of medieval ignorance and naivety. Where is the spirit of conversation so much hailed and lauded as our country is preparing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her birth?
We call on the authorities to allow an honest appraisal of our history, so that we can develop as an intelligent nation, not just in hard-wire terms, but in the heart and soul of our people.
