Riveting observational and experimental documentary, GREEN JAIL (2021) was filmed over the course of 4 years on Iriomote Island, Okinawa Japan—an island that once was a notorious coal mine before World War II. Grandma Hashima Yoshiko lived on the island since 1937 after being adopted by Yang’s family with the intention of becoming the ‘child bride’ for the family. 

 

Grandma Hashima married the first son of Yang’s family. Tragedy struck when the husband passed away, leaving her to care for the family alone. Facing the fate similar to the miners, she is constrained on the island either by choice or by force. Can she and the miners overcome the feeling of isolation and alienation on the island? Which island can they really call it home? 

 

導演黃胤毓耗費數年調查、整理檔案、同時成書的罕見歷史事件。拍攝地點不在台灣,卻還原台灣在場歷史事實的參與觀察式紀錄片,提供認識台灣過往的另一種正在被遺忘卻必要的途徑。穿插著錄音檔案、演員的戲劇式重演(Re-enactment)、疊映的手法,摹想出穿著和服、被禁錮受苦的時代幽靈。

 

二戰時充滿迫害與血淚、被稱為「死人島」沖繩西表島上,如今垂垂老矣的橋間良子操著台語,訴說客在異鄉的失落,被歷史的浪潮沖到孤島。橋間良子為什麼不回去台灣 ? 島上綠樹成蔭卻隱瞞著不可告人的歷史傷痛。外地人的孤墳、說著日語的美軍後代,和台灣阿嬤構成怪異的歷史錯位。
