我一直認為,一定有一個精神及歷史的核心意義存在於現今經濟急速發展的華人社會中,它是緊密地嵌入老百姓生活中的具體事物 ──這部影片正式試著去發掘這個文化與心靈的核心。四百年來,在我的家鄉,媽祖一直是百姓最重要的宗教信仰。沿著中國沿岸甚至是南洋地區,至少有一座供奉媽祖的廟宇在各個海邊 城市中──這正好與當代華人經濟或是工業區的分布相吻合。令人沮喪的是,落腳於西太平洋與中國沿海的工廠,帶動了財富成長,但卻有可能直接或間接導致海水上漲,並淹沒當初鼓舞人們勇 於追求現實經濟利益的媽祖廟。這對於我們的文明來說確實是一個非常諷刺的發現,「我們」,不管是華人或是所有人類,不管是現在或過去。我們該如何避免這即 將發生的悲劇?
I always feel that, there must be a spiritual and historical core inside the contemporary economical booming of Chinese societies. And that must be something concrete embeeded in ordinary people’s daily life. This is a film trying to explore this core. Mazu, or the Sea Goddess, is the most important religious belief of ordinary people in my home town for more that 400 years. Alongside the mainland China coast and even Southeast Asia, there is at least one Mazu temples in each seaside city. This geographical/historical deployment just matches with the locations of contemporary enconomical or industrial zones in Chinese societies. However, it is also sad to realize that, if nothing changed, the global warming brought about by current economical booming, especially those from world factories located at seaside of south China, will eventu-ally cause flood and wash away these Mazu Temple. This is indeed an ironic finding for our civilization.I mean “our”, either by Chinese people or by the whole human beings, either by nowadays or by the past. What can we Chinese do to prevent the forthcoming tragedy?
--Chao-Wei Chang, Producer & Director of 《Way of Fortune》
