在伊朗,很多女性的权利被以保护女性的名义所压制,婚姻法框架下的女性总是被动的。娱乐是被禁止的,女性歌手更是不能公开 演唱的,而在香港这个有自由传统的地方,女性可以更自由的追寻自己的感情,理想,生活方式,我选择让一个在剧院工作的伊朗 女孩在私人汽车里重新演绎了香港已故女明星梅艳芳生前在演唱会上的一段与粉丝的对话,这段对话呈现了梅艳芳对爱情与婚姻的 自由追逐,我试图寻找不同民族,不同地域的人在相同故事的框架下,呈现出来差异性与共同点。


In Iran, many rights of women are suppressed under the name of protecting women. Women are always in passive position in the frame of marriage law. Entertainment is forbidden for women and female singers are not allowed to give open performance. HK is a traditional place advocating for freedom and women in HK may freely pursue for their own love, dream and lifestyle. I chose to have an Iranian girl, who worked for a theater, reproduce a dialogue between the deceased HK female star Anita Mui and her fans in private car. The dialogue shows the free pursuit of Anita Mui for love and marriage. I am attempting to seek for the differences and common points presented by people from different nations and areas in the same story frame, and also hope to show the attitude of Iranian women toward life and emotion through such a kind of performance and review the free space for people under the governance of totalitarianism.
