Nominated for the New Currents Award at Busan International Film Festival 2019 and Best New Director at Golden Horse Film Festival 2019, Lau Kek-Huat’s debut feature Boluomi takes on an astonishing angle and style to portray Malaysia's forbidden history and Taiwan’s immigrant society. 

 

Decades ago the Malayan Communist Party fought guerilla wars in the jungle, prompting villagers to send newborns to other villages for a better future. Boluomi was one of those babies. Years later, his estranged son Yi-Fan flees to Taiwan due to racial discrimination in Malaysia. Yi-Fan finds a sense of belonging through a fellow immigrant, Laila. As he falls in love he also starts to piece together memories of his father, and eventually, his own identity.

 

來自馬來西亞的新銳導演廖克發,與表演藝術家陳雪甄共同執導的《菠蘿蜜》,榮獲了第56屆金馬獎的最佳新導演提名。廖克發延續前兩部以國族歷史為題的紀錄片,首度執導的劇情長片《菠蘿蜜》改編自身的童年經歷,探討身處台灣的異鄉人,內心揮之不去的鄉愁。本片入圍釜山國際影展競賽單元及台北電影節最佳劇情長片提名。

 

故事追溯到半世紀前,馬來西亞共產黨為了爭取獨立在森林裡展開游擊戰,使得新生兒唯有被送出森林才能改變命運。無法抹滅的歷史讓許多馬來西亞人都有顛沛流離的記憶。時光流轉至今,僑生一凡(吳念軒 飾)從馬來西亞到台灣求學,萊拉(Laila Ulao 飾)為了菲律賓家人生計而到台灣工作,兩個異鄉人猶如兩株浮萍,因菠蘿密使他們找到了依靠,但卻未因此改變雙方在台的命運。
