‘A Truth Hunter’ is a short film that I have recently completed. It exposes and critiques the worrying ‘reality’ and ‘truth’ that pervades international media society today through portraying the experiences of a semi-fictional truth hunter, ‘I’. Through this short film, I hope that viewers will reconsider the so-called truths and pay attention to the ‘reality’ that is currently evolving in front of us at all times.
从初次接触电子录像设备开始，孙搏一已经进行了近14年的运动影像实践，涉及的种类包括视频，电视节目，纪录片，数字电影，实验性电影，以及最近的电影装置艺术。孙搏一的实践兴趣始终围绕着将‘感觉’在电影实践中创造性的发展作为一种可以促进社会间甚至物种之间‘相互理解’，并有助于打破‘隔阂’的工具。受道家和海德格尔现象学思想的影响，她尤其擅长利用寓言式的手法借助于人类日常生活中的琐碎经历对社会问题进行揭露。她所拍摄和制作的作品包括 《内心的声音》，《门》，《一场战争的开始》，《张先生》，《真相猎手》等。她的作品先后获得洛杉矶电影节和Festigious国际电影节的最佳黑色幽默片奖，入围了中国纪录片学院奖，伦敦独立电影节，亚特兰大国际电影节，法国人类学电影节，巴塞罗那星球电影节与印度国际金球奖，并在Unfolding Narritive群展中被展览。孙搏一一直致力于国际间的‘感觉’文化传播。目前，她正在伦敦艺术大学攻读博士学位。她当下的实践尤其关注于在后疫情时代，通过电影实践对于向国际社会翻译和传播民族特色‘感觉’。
Sun Boyi is a post-90s independent filmmaker and artist.
Since her first encounter with electronic video equipment, Sun has been practising moving image for nearly 14 years in the genres of video, television, documentary, digital film, experimental film and, most recently, film installation art. Sun’s practice interests have always revolved around the creative development of ‘feeling’ in film practice as a tool that can promote ‘mutual understanding’ between societies and even species, and help to break down ‘boundaries’. Influenced by Taoist and Heideggerian phenomenological thought, she is particularly adept at using allegorical techniques to expose social issues through the trivial experiences of everyday human life. She has produced a range of works, including The Inner Voice, The Gate, The Beginning of a War, Mr Zhang, and A Truth Hunter. Some of the works were awarded Best Black Humour at the Los Angeles Film Festival and Festigious International Film Festival shortlisted for the China Documentary Academy Awards, London Independent Film Festival, Atlanta International Film Festival, Ethnografilm Paris Film Festival, Barcelona Planet Film Festival and the Golden Globe Awards. One of them is exhibiting in the Unfolding Narrative group exhibition. Sun is currently studying for her PhD at the University of the Arts London. She has been working on the international dissemination of ‘felt’ culture. Her current practice is particularly concerned with the translation of national ‘feeling’ to the international community through film practice in the post-epidemic era.
