劇情簡介 Synopsis

老包在某個夜裡接到了一通意外的電話,許久未聯絡的大學同學小酒約他見面。老包內心雖然充滿疑問,但仍舊赴約。尷尬的重逢問候並沒有讓他們敞開心房,一個突如其來的想法,卻讓兩人決定重回校園,挖出以前一起埋藏的時光膠囊。
雖然苦樂夾雜的回憶湧上心頭,但在搜尋時光膠囊的過程中,兩人過去的矛盾終於爆發。老包沒有意料到的是,出現在校園月色下的神秘身影、當年未竟的籃球比賽,和過往暗戀未果的情事,竟讓這個如夢似幻、莫以名狀的夜晚,平添一股溫暖又悲傷的氣息。

BAO receives an unexpected phone call from NINETY, a friend who he hasn’t contacted for a long time. The reunion doesn’t bring them closer. Somehow, the awkwardness between them triggers their decision to dig out the time capsule they buried in school. Although they recall bittersweet memories through the adventure, the misunderstanding they had long before finally leads to a fight after the failure of their searching. However, to Bao’s surprise, the mysterious figures around campus corners, the unfinished basketball game and the secret romance in the past… all eventually contribute to this strange and nostalgic emotion of the magical night.

 

創作概念 Artist Statement

年少的青春往事不論在什麼時候回想起來,都帶著點魔幻的色彩。夾雜著遺憾、激情、羞澀和瘋癲,那個曾經理所當然毫不節制的遙遠時空,如今卻已無跡可尋,成為了一種既現實又似夢一般的存在。
於是過去的我們開始解離,與現在的自己平行並存著,無時無刻地反覆辯證著那陌生又親密的人生感受 – 就像台北市不斷消失的天橋、埋藏過去和未來的時光膠囊,甚至是那支不再一起跳的舞… 我們只能在無處追索的回憶中,找到存在的真切意義。
如果生存的本質就是失去,永恆不過是一個相對的概念。那麼,在當初相遇的那一刻起,我們就已經真正地為彼此活過,即使短暫絢爛,卻足以在人生這漫長黑夜中,留下灼灼閃爍的星光。

Youthful days always carry a magical element as we recall them. With the nature of regret, passion and embarrassment, the memory from the past always make me feel contradictorily – dreamy yet realistic. The distance between the past and present then creates an alternative self that becomes the only proof of my own existence. Eternity is a relative concept since nothing ever stays the same. The moment we met and the times we shared were never too short to leave a glaring mark in this long dark night we called life.
