《返校》首三日票房夯 白色恐怖真實血淚遺書曝光| ‘Detention’ tops box office, exposes Taiwan White Terror era

【看英文中國郵報學英文】國片《返校》改編自人氣恐怖電玩,片中還原白色恐怖時期的台灣教育,不少人對於當時校園的肅殺氛圍,以及因言論箝制遭拖上刑場師生的下場深感震撼。《返校》上映第一天就拿下全台冠軍,並開出1800萬的佳績,好成績不停歇,週六上映的第二天票房又有2750萬。而第二天的票房2750萬,也打敗賣座國片《賽德克・巴萊:太陽旗》首日票房2300萬元的紀錄。

Taiwan psychological horror film “Detention,” adapted from a survival horror video game, depicts the intimidating atmosphere of the learning environment in Taiwan during the White Horror era (1947-1987). Due to martial law, teachers and students who were accused of inappropriate speech could be arrested. “Detention” brought in NT$ 18 million to keep the top spot on its first day. On Saturday, “Detention” had earned NT$27 million on the second day, defeating “Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale” which received NT$23 million on its first day.

搭上話題,促進轉型正義委員會(促轉會)引用劇情,公開當年3位受害者的遺書,「有了歷史真相,才能讓整體社會共同面對過去的歷史。」

In response to the hit film, the Transitional Justice Commission (TJC) revealed the last words from three of the victims during the White Terror period. “Only if we find the truth in history, society could jointly face the past.” 

促轉會同時曝光3封由受難者親筆寫下的遺書,分別為參與劫獄和武裝台獨行動、「泰源事件」基督徒江炳興先生;「大甲案」中被槍決的張如松先生;參與台灣獨立運動成為無國籍者,後遭中華民國政府於日本誘捕並處決的陳智雄先生。

The three victims include a Taiwan independence activist, Chiang Ping-hsing who was involved in an armed rebellion for Taiwan Independence, Chang Ju-sung, who was executed in the Dajia case, and Chen Chih-hsiung, who was sentenced to death by the government in Japan as a result of his involvement in the Taiwan independence movement.

文末,促轉會強調將會持續透過檔案與口述訪談還原歷史真相,揭露過去威權時期政府非法作為,並釐清加害責任。

The TJC said that they would keep on revealing the truth in history by releasing records in an attempt to disclose the illegal behaviors under the authoritarian regime to the public and clarify the perpetrators’ responsibility.
