Vegan Earth Watch 素看地球 電影播放活動

 

 

這片榮獲了33個獎項, 包括1個金球獎和7個艾美獎, 還同時獲頒人道主義獎、女性電影影評人獎、女性形象電影獎和動保組織PETA的嘉獎。這些獎項點出了這電影展示的不單是社會對自閉人仕的不義,而是環繞著主角,牽出了各種互相扣連的歧視,包括性別、思考方法/能力,以及物種。地球日,我們來看這些交錯的蔓枝。

The movie Temple Grandin has won a Golden Globe, seven Emmys and a Humanitas Prize. In all, it has received 33 awards from a range of organizations including The Women Film Critics Circle, The Women’s Image Network and PETA. The breadth of these awards shows that this film is about far more than the autism of its main character, Temple Grandin. Through her story, the movie reveals a world of interconnected discrimination – ableism, sexism and speciesism.

主角嘉莉譚寶以視覺思考,語言笨拙,加上思覺過敏讓她受到排擠。一個農場假期成為了她的拯救,讓她愛上了農場裏的動物。上大學後她集中研究動物行為並以設計了一套蛇形走道,讓動物安靜地由貨車走到屠房,免牠們因受驚傷害自己和招致更多加害,作為她在一個殘酷世界留給動物的尊重。對素食群體而言,這就是影片的爆點︰反對者認為這系統只會改良屠房效益,和成為殘暴者仁慈的假面,增加因食得安心的「人道」肉需求。我們當然可以繼續討論這道德兩難的處境,但我們心知道肆肉之惡不單在於屠刀口上,放映這電影,便是希望挖出它更深藏的不義盤根……

Temple Grandin was an outcast when she was young. She thought in pictures, had difficulty with words, and was hypersensitive to sound and touch. A farm holiday changed her life. She fell in love with farm animals. Her passion carried her to university where she studied animal behaviour.

She developed a ramp system so that cattle could march their way to the killing floor free from panic about injuring themselves. This panic often brought aggression towards them from their handlers. The ramp was Temple Grandin’s way to offer cattle a little respect in a cruel world. However, the ramp sparked heated debate among vegetarians and vegans. Critics charged that the ramp system only worked to boost the efficiency of abattoirs while turning potential vegetarians towards so-called “humane” meat. Debate on this moral dilemma continues. We all know that the evil of animal based consumption doesn’t lie only in the moment when the animal is killed. So, it is high time that we dig up more deeply entrenched connections.
