These days, I found that my work it can connect with Humanity, so, I found some resources from online to stimulate my ideas. I watched a film named Aftershock , which was published by Xiaogang Feng, who is a famous director in China. And this film described that In 1969, the truck driver Fang Daqiang ushered in his twin children in prayer: Fang Deng and Fonda. His wife Li Yuanni had almost killed, but finally, the mother and child, one family happy to leave the hospital and happy life. Time to 1976, Tangshan, a medium-sized industrial city, although the family has only a small space, but warm and harmonious. Sister Deng more active than brother Fonda, Fang Daqiang often go out in the outside and he not easy to come back again, the siblings are very happy when their dad came home. One July evening party, it went back to his home in the community on the road outside, Fang Daqiang and Yuan Niduo in the truck around, sudden earthquake.
To save the child, Fang Daqiang died, Fang Deng and Fonda was the same block floor pressure on both sides, whether people want to save one, must give up another. Choose from Ni yuan’s ailing brother, but the head of Deng hear mother choice. After the earthquake, Yuan Ni alone to raise their son, choose to live, the surviving party military Wang Deqing couples to adopt, entering into a new world. From the lives of mother and daughter, sister, until 32 years after the Wenchuan earthquake, the life of their back together.
Actually, I got some feedback form this film. The three people, mother, son and daughter.
Mother: Mother, in order to own the original decision, has been sad. For 32 years, she has been condemned by conscience, unable to get out of the shadow of the earthquake. For them, it should give more care and understanding.
Daughter: Daughter, for her mother’s original decision, has been rejected resentment. 32 years, she had not been back to Tangshan to find relatives, she has a special feeling for complex painful memories, she can not forget Tangshan, but also can not forget her mother’s choice, the painful memories that she once again awakened from a nightmare!
Son: Son, although the earthquake brought him physical disability, he was lucky compared to his mother and daughter, because his heart was healthy and bright. He wanted to fight for those who died, the living people, and ultimately, by virtue of their own hard work, from scratch, fought out a piece of heaven and earth. It also represents the status of the younger generation after the earthquake, they have experienced heavy losses, more cherish life, more hard up; they are a new force, is the new life of the pioneers and builders.
Although the terrible earthquake, but far less than the earthquake brings to people’s life and the inner world shaking more destructive; but even the vibrations are daunting, but tolerance, understanding, strong and true love between people, but it can resolve all the pain. Time in the past, can not afford to wipe out the family, is miss. Love let hatred die, love let the family forever !
As Ralph Ellison(Unknown) said that “Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.”
