【新唐人2013年05月01日讯】揭露“马三家劳教所酷刑黑幕的记录片《小鬼头上的女人》,和揭露2600名“被劳教少年”死亡真相的《大堡小劳教》,5月1号,将在香港和台湾同步首映。两部作品的题材、内容,同时尖锐的批判了中国的劳教制度,尤其《小鬼头上的女人》,直接触碰了中共最敏感的法轮功被迫害问题。下面就一起来关注这两部令人心酸的记录片。

《小鬼头上的女人》,记录了发生在沈阳市“马三家女子劳教所”的真实故事。片中通过几名亲身经历者描述在劳教所遭受的非人道待遇。她们诉说:“上访人和法轮功学员被女警察用小号、抻(chen)刑、十字吊、悬空挂、老虎凳等酷刑折磨,甚至被要求躺着数个月不洗澡。”

而《大堡小劳教》则记述了1958年期间,四川大堡的“小劳教”们劳教生涯的惨痛经历。

当年被强迫送往大堡的“小劳教”总数在四、五千人,小的十岁,大的十七岁,他们当中因为高强度的劳作、饥荒、疾病和虐待等致死者,达2600人之多。

香港《开放》杂志编辑蔡咏梅表示,她很佩服中国大陆的媒体人。蔡咏梅特别提出,《小鬼头上的女人》导演杜斌,是一个很有勇气和同情心的媒体人。

香港《开放》杂志执行主编蔡咏梅:“他(杜斌)说现在劳教所里面的人员一半是上访人员,一半是法轮功学员,它(劳教所)有个功能是改变这些人的信念,上访人员要放弃上访,法轮功学员要放弃你的法轮功的信仰。我觉得她们是非常的坚强,她们反对迫害遭受这种很残酷的报复,受到很大的肉体酷刑的折磨。”

而“前中山大学”中文系教授、独立记录片导演艾晓明也表示,《大堡小劳教》填补了关于中国劳教史的一个很重要的空白。

前中山大学中文系教授艾晓明:“还有今天的人们,在这样一个社会里,普遍一个状态就是抹杀这些苦难,它主张冷漠、麻木和遗忘。但是我觉得,像谢贻卉、曾伯炎,他们都以非凡的勇气和毅力,去挖掘了中国人的这一段痛史。从记录片的角度来讲是一个非常重要的突破和推进。”

《大堡小劳教》的导演谢贻卉,跟随1958年被打成右派,当时在《四川日报》任职的曾伯炎,走访了大批亲历者。据曾伯炎考证,“四川沙坪劳教所”至今的官方历史文件中,仅提到:成功改造六万五千多人输送社会,却只字不提“小劳教”们大规模死亡事件。

时事评论员林子旭表示,看到这些消息,他感觉中国社会有一些大的变化,因为不仅仅是越来越多的中国人觉醒了,他们还在积极的想要为同胞做些什么。

时事评论员林子旭:“真名实姓的揭露中共的劳教所黑窝,这等于是把老中共的老底儿都掀出来了,特别是对于劳教所的揭露,直接触碰到了中共最敏感的法轮功被迫害的问题,这在几年前是根本无法想像的,中共最害怕的就是民众内心释放出来的正义与勇气,打倒共产党这样的话,越来越多的被中国人勇敢的喊了出来了,我真的感觉看到希望了。”

艾晓明还表示,因为这两个作品尖锐的批判了中国的现实,因此,不可能在大陆上映,不过,人们可以突破网路封锁在网上看。

艾晓明:“现实中那么多的民众遭受了这个强迫劳教的痛苦。不仅在社会上,在法律界,一直有废除劳教制度的呼声,就是中央政府也有这个决定,就是要在今年要做劳教制度的改革。那当然,我是主张废除这个万恶的劳教制度。”

不过,蔡咏梅担心,杜斌回到中国大陆将受到当局的惩罚。

Two Documentary Films on China’s Reeducation-Through-Labor

Two documentary films are scheduled to be screened
in Hong Kong and Taiwan on May 1st.
One is “Above the Ghosts’ Heads:
The Women of Masanjia Labour Camp”;
The other is “Juvenile Laborers Detained in Dabao”.

The two movies have unveiled the darkness of China’s
reeducation-through-labor (RTL) system.
In particular, the film “Above the Ghosts’ Heads”
touches the issue of the persecution of Falun Gong,
this is a taboo topic for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Let’s see more news about these two poignant films.

The film “Above the Ghosts’ Heads” tells the true stories
of what happened to detainees in Masanjia Female RTL Camp in Shenyang city.
Several witnesses recount their personal experiences
of inhumane sufferings there.
They say that “The petitioners and Falun Gong practitioners
were subject to many tortures inside the camp.
The tortures include being locked in solitary confinement,
being hanged up or tied in a body-tearing position,
or being strapped to a tiger bench
with hands and feet tied together.
They were even required to lie down for months,
and banned from taking a shower.”

The movie “Juvenile Laborers Confined in Dabao”
records the painful experiences had by RTL detainees in Sichuan’s Dabao town in 1958.

A total of over 4,000 juveniles were forcibly sent to be
detained in an RTL camp located in Dabao, their ages ranged from 10 – 17.
The high intensity of labor, famine, disease and
mistreatment claimed 2,600 lives.

Tsai Yung-Mei, editor of Hong Kong’s Open magazine,
says that she admires China’s media professionals.
She says that Du Bin, director of “Above the Ghosts’ Heads”,
is courageous and compassionate.

Tsai Yung-Mei: “Du Bin said that in China,
half of the RTL detainees are the petitioners,
and the other half are Falun Gong practitioners.
The RTL camps serve to change these people’s faith.
The detained petitioners are forced to give up
their petitioning, and the Falun Gong practitioners,
to give up their belief in Falun Gong.
I think they were strong-willed in resisting the persecution
and in suffering such brutal physical torture.”

Ai Xiaoming, China’s independent documentary filmmaker,
comments.
He thinks the film “Juvenile Laborers Confined in Dabao”
fills a very important gap in the history of China’s RTL.

Ai Xiaoming: “Today, there are still some people who argue
that we should cover up these sufferings in the real world,
that we should show apathy and numbness
towards this truth and forget.
But in my view, people like Xie Yihui and Zeng Boyan
have extraordinary courage and perseverance.
They have unearthed this shocking period
in China’s painful history.
That is a very important breakthrough and an advance,
from the perspective of documentary.”

Xie Yihui is the director of “Juvenile Laborers
Confined in Dabao”.
Xie accompanied Zeng Boyan, an ex-journalist,
he also interviewed a large number of witnesses.
Zeng has verified all the official files in the history of
Sichuan Shaping RTL Camp, which only mention
“successful transformation of over 65,000 people
for their rehabilitation and return to society.”
None of these documents speak of the massive
numbers of deaths of those juvenile detainees.

Critic Lin Zixu believes that China may see some
big changes soon, after this shocking news.
Lin states that besides awakening, more Chinese people
are now making efforts to help their fellow compatriots.

Lin Zixu: “People use their real names to expose the RTL
camps, they actually disclose the CCP’s darkest scandals.
It is all directed at the CCP’s taboo topic,
the persecution of Falun Gong.
Back a few years ago, no one dared to do such a thing.

What the CCP fears most is the inner sense of justice
and courage that the people will surely release.
So far, more Chinese people have dared to shout
‘Down with the CCP’.
I really feel that now there is real hope for China.”

Ai Xiaoming remarks that the two films make a searing
criticism of the reality that is today’s China.
So of course any screening in China
will be impossible.
He recommends that the public circumvent the official
internet censorship blocks and watch the movies online.

Ai Xiaoming: “China has numerous real-life RTL victims.

The community and law professionals have
called for abolishing the RTL for years.
The central authority has also promised to
reform the RTL system this year.
I support the abolition of this extremely evil RTL system.”

Nevertheless, Tsai Yung-Mei is worried that Du Bin may
be subjected to punishment if one day he returns to China.
