【看CP學英文】好萊塢男星喬瑟夫高登李維(Joseph Gordon-Levitt)之前今天貼出一則網友集體創作的「當我想到台灣」影片,貼文用表情符號秀出中華民國國旗,台灣網友的創意與才華令他驚艷又感動。

Hollywood movie star Joseph Gordon-Levitt debuted his collaborative project “Lost in Taiwan” on Facebook on Friday, saying, with a Taiwanese flag emoji, that he was “blown away and deeply touched” by Taiwanese social media users’ enthusiasm.

喬瑟夫高登李維之前在他創辦的創作平台網站hitRECord徵求來自台灣的照片。

Gordon Levitt had previously asked Taiwanese social media users for pictures and videos that best showcased Taiwan for his platform hitRECord.

高登李維說,這支影片集合來自台灣150人以上提供的文字、照片、影片、音樂和語音。最初只是一個簡單的發想:「當我想到台灣,我想到_________。」

Gordon-Levitt explained that the project featured “writing, photography, video, music and voice acting from more than 150 contributors.” 

“This script began as a simple prompt to finish this sentence: ‘When I think of Taiwan, I think of ________’, Gordon-Levitt wrote.

高登李維最後補充:「你們對這項計畫的熱情讓我非常驚喜且深深感動,我要向你們每個人說一聲大大的感謝,你們的創造力與才華非常啟發人心。」

“I’ve been blown away and deeply touched by your enthusiasm for this project, and I wanted to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated. Your creativity and talent are inspiring,” Gordon-Levitt wrote.

兩分半鐘的影片中,有人提到,香煙繚繞的寺廟、坐在摩托車上微風吹過臉頰、街口不遠就有便利商店。

In the two-and-half-minute-long video, some mentioned temples and incense, sitting on scooters and feeling the wind on their faces and convenience stores that are never more than a few steps away. 

「我們珍惜辛苦爭取來的民主、自由。」也有人提到台灣積極參與政治,珍惜民主成果,以及台灣曲折的歷史背景。

Others said that when they think of Taiwan, they think of democracy and freedom, putting special emphasis on Taiwanese citizens’ active political participation.

旁白結尾說:「最重要的是,我認為台灣是我身上一部分,一塊擁有自由意志的土地,一塊屬於年輕心靈的土地,一塊擁抱人性的土地,一個我稱為家的地方。」

Near the end of the video, a narrator can be heard saying: “Most of all, I think of Taiwan as part of who I am. A land of free will, a land of young minds, a land that embraces humanity, a land that I call home.”
