简介 Synopsis:

在过去重大社会事件里,城市中爱书、卖书、说书和作书的人无缝融入于游行队伍之中。然而此纪录片把这一众人带到聚光灯之下,由书店开始探讨文艺空间的价值。导演江琼珠是爱书人,三四年间走访过香港、新加坡,以及马来西亚的独立书店,探究各书店工作者对于书、社区、生活等范畴的态度,展现在不同经营理念底下,独立书店如何成为一个多变、包容,并刺激思想的空间。这些工作者面对社会带来的新旧挑战,仍然在书店自得其乐地工作。每人都发言坚定,从不在乎资本主义社会所强调的商业价值,甚至逆其道而行,只为了把好作品及作者带给人。正因如此,这些书店能做出不同新尝试,对社会事件保持敏锐的眼光,成为了大众反思社会矛盾的重要出口。

This is a feature length documentary on three independent bookshops in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. Bookshops illuminate a city. From these serene sanctuaries, we can see different facets of a city and feel the local vibes. In this documentary, three women booksellers talk about their passions, their love of bookshops, and their missions in life. Their unique characters shine through the way they run their shops. The film is peppered with intimate anecdotes on books and writers. Readers as well as writers also share their views on how books shape their lives. Ode to Book People is a film on book people, for book people, by book people.
