影片簡介:
十年前後,中國國力日盛,國內的人權狀況和自由空間卻急遽收窄。近年維權律師更被歸類為「新黑五類」,一連串的打壓,甚至後來的709大抓捕,都對中國法治帶來沉重打擊,也改變了一班人權捍衛者的命運。維權律師、家屬相繼被逼流亡海外。不過,無論國內國外,他們都共同承受著打壓的結果。

「離開中國就是離開了戰場,對一個維權人士來說,就是失去了真正的戰場。」看似自由的海外維權律師,心裡卻承受著罪疚感,到底他們能夠如何面對?忍痛逃亡的709家屬,在外面的世界又過著怎樣的生活?

紀錄片《709 彼岸 The Other Shore》正好透過他們的說話,讓人了解在外的難處,亦看見他們堅毅不屈的意志。裡裡外外的人,都一同遠眺著彼岸,守候著一個懷抱正義的世界。

導演簡介:

這是香港媒體人盧敬華剛完成的新作品,記錄一群中國維權律師遭到打壓、逮捕,家屬被迫流亡海外的事蹟。

盧敬華曾任有線電視專題記者,亦以灰記名義撰寫政論文章,現為自由職業者,從事書寫和拍攝工作。

五十後記者,童年已目睹左派群眾與警察對峙,嗅過催淚彈味。小學已聽同學熱論中共長征是走路,曾為中華民國被驅出聯合國而悲憤,亦短暫跟外國革命毛派過從甚密。不善辭令,卻愛「思考」個人與集體、家鄉與國土、在地與國際。無一技之長,卻當了二十多年記者。行將活了一個甲子,依然相信「歷史是人民寫」的,故與眾多博客一起履行人民責任,發聲發聲。

Introduction:
While China’s national strength has tremendously increased over the past decade, its human right situation and freedom have rapidly deteriorated. In 2012, human rights lawyers even figured first in the list of the “New Black Five Categories”. A series of government’s repressive actions, together with the 709 Crackdown in 2015, have severely damaged the rule of law in China, and inevitably changed the fate of human rights defenders. Being forced to live in exile, lawyers and their families have jointly borne the pain of repression no matter if they are inside or outside the country.

“Being away from China equals to leaving the battlefield. As a human rights activist, it implies leaving the real battlefield.” While the overseas human rights lawyers are seemingly free, there is always a strong sense of guilt deep down in their heart. How do they face such circumstances? For the families of “709” lawyers, what do their lives look like in the “outside world”?

The documentary “709 The Other Shore” demonstrates both their hardship and perseverance through their words. People both on the inside and the outside are gazing at the other shore, looking forward to a world filled with justice.
