THE MOVIE: BANGLASIA 電影:猛加拉殺手

Synopsis 故事大綱

哈里斯是一位在馬來西亞的孟加拉外勞,他簡單地希望回到老家與愛人結婚。然而,他無情的老闆不讓他休假,而且沒收了他的護照。至於“韓國人”是名發起護國運動者,他向民眾表示抗議,並不滿外勞入侵自己的國家。另外,哈里斯老闆理想主義的女兒雷娜對哈里斯一見鍾情,並愛上了他,三人再捲入充滿喜劇效果的複雜關係中。

Harris, a poor Bangladeshi worker in Malaysia, simply wants to return to his hometown to marry the love of his life. However, his leave is denied when his ruthless boss decides to confiscate his passport. Enter Hanguoren, a pro-Malaysian activist who preaches to his fellow countrymen to regain their home in its natural state without immigrants. And then there is Rina, the idealistic daughter of the boss who falls for Harris at first sight, as the trio gets embroiled in an energetic comedy of errors.

《猛加拉殺手》是一部引用西方主流電影的浪漫夢幻、音樂劇,甚至動作冒險和喜劇元素,與豐富的人物連成一線,以詮釋民族、種族、政治腐敗問題。導演黃明志匯集所有演員,包括他自己大膽地碰觸敏感題材

BANGLASIA is a riot of a film which references the Western film genre, fluffy romances, musicals and even, action-adventures, filled with zany, colourful characters who are never one-dimensional. Expounding on issues of nationalism, racism, corruption and bureaucracy, director Namewee brings together a delightful ensemble cast, including himself, in this no-holds-barred comedy which dabbles in serious topics with just enough sarcasm, mischief and wit.

WHY ARE WE MAKING THIS MOVIE? 為什麼我們做這部電影?

這個故事是啟發自黃明志熱愛的祖國馬來西亞的寫實生活。這一個獨立於1957年的前英國殖民地,擁有不同語言、文化、種族和經濟地位,卻被大批外勞入侵威脅且摧毀了人民團結與和平,導致民族,種族和宗教的關係緊張。 《猛加拉殺手》發出一個強烈的信息給觀眾(尤其是馬來西亞人),為了馬來西亞下一代的未來,必須採取行動,以維護和保護它。
This story is inspired by real life events happening in Namewee's beloved home country Malaysia, a melting pot of diverse languages, cultures, ethnicity and socioeconomic status. A former British colony independent since 1957, this South East Asian nation has prospered at the expense of simmering nationalistic, racial and religious tensions underpinned by influx of migrant workers, that threaten to destroy the fabric of unity among its largely peace-loving people. BANGLASIA sends a strong message to its audience (particularly Malaysians) that for the sake of the next generation, Malaysia's future cannot be taken for granted and something must be done to preserve and protect its integrity.

 很不幸的,馬來西亞電檢局不認同我們,正式宣佈在馬來西亞被禁映(和商業化)。目前我們處於兩難的狀態下,該如何在全球上映才不不會造成金錢虧損,黃明誌第一次在這裡表示:
UNFORTUNATELY, the Malaysian Censorship Board doesn't see the same way as we do, and proceeded to OFFICIALLY BAN it from being publicly screened (and commercialized) in any possible ways in Malaysia. That means, we are now in a dilemma what to do next to still release it to the world, while not incur significant financial losses. Namewee first told the story here:

WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACHIEVE WITH KICKSTARTER? 我們想透過Kickstarter實現什麼?

  • To give Namewee's supporters who believe in him and his projects a direct opportunity to contribute and be part of, in their own capacity.讓相信黃明志和他的作品的支持者在自己的能力範圍內,有機會直接參與。
  • Raise sufficient funds to partially recoup our initial production cost of more than RM 4,000,000 (USD 1,000,000) so that we can afford to release the movie globally for FREE. 籌集足夠的資金以彌補當初超過400萬馬幣(100萬美金)的製作成本,才能在全球免費發布電影。
  • Use part of the funds to pay for extra post-production editing so that qualified donors can be mentioned in the front and end credits. 將使用部分資金支付額外的後製費用,所以合格的捐資者將出現在片頭及片尾字幕鳴謝名單。

Risks and challenges

風險與挑戰

儘管《猛加拉殺手》擁有百萬的黃明志迷在期待上映,還是因31個鏡頭不符合一般觀看規格正式被禁映,電影監製和導演(黃明志)已經受到重大的挫折。
The producer and director (Namewee) already suffered a major setback when Banglasia was officially banned in Malaysia due to 31 scenes that were deemed “unsuitable” for general viewing, despite a huge demand by millions of Namewee fans for it to be screened.

眾籌成功是極大的挑戰,將提供了最方便的平台給所有捐資者(特別是馬來西亞觀眾)觀看導演版的電影。
The biggest challenge upon being successfully funded is to provide the most accessible platform for all donors (especially Malaysia-based audience) to view the Director’s Cut version.

無論如何,最大的風險是眾籌失敗,也就表示一個真實的種族和民族團結鬥爭的故事將永遠被埋葬起來。
However, the biggest risk of NOT getting successful funding is this film, which really is a human story that tells the struggles of forging racial and national unity, will be buried for good and never to be released again.
