八十年代初,曾穎馳的母親帶同哥哥和妹妹移民美國洛衫磯,年僅六歲的他被遺留在香港,跟着忙於工作的父親生活。往後三年,曾穎馳經常獨自留在家裏,睡夢中也期待着與家人重聚的一天。可是,當父親終於帶他移居美國,美夢卻徹底地破碎。

《家庭團聚》收集經年的褪色家庭照片、舊錄影片段和訪問。除了反映自身經歷,亦反映了美國亞裔家庭的勞工歷史及香港殖民地的痕跡。他以詩的形式,對多年的心結作出自省與探問。然而他也很清楚,只有在能決定如何走下去之時,心結才能完滿解開。

When his mother and two siblings first immigrated from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s, six-year-old Alvin was forced to stay behind with his working and consequently absent father. Spending the following three years often alone in an empty apartment, he longed for his family’s reunification. However, upon Alvin and his father’s arrival to America, that dream was utterly and permanently shattered.

REUNIFICATION is Alvin Tsang’s poetic and self-reflective exploration of many unresolved years that moves moodily across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kong’s colonial trajectories. Tsang turns the camera on his own family, cautiously prodding for answers, but fully acknowledging that the only closure he can get will be from deciding for himself how to move on.
