台灣原住民獵槍除罪化 Decriminalization of Taiwanese Indigenous Hunting Rifles


2014,影像,31分40秒

「除罪化」意指將一個原本是犯罪的行為規定為非犯罪;反之將一個原本不是犯罪的行為而定義犯罪,稱為「入罪化」。在所謂的文明社會裡,原住民狩獵文化何以成為異文化法制下審視的客體?昔日部落驕傲的獵人,在這個後來的年輕國家的律法下卻成為了罪犯,多元文化的尊重竟是現今經政體難以面對的課題,甚至是守護傳統的人們。

影片透過單一案例採訪映現議題,並佐以案例提供的紀錄影像,以及自撰的口傳故事穿插其中。

The term “decriminalization” refers to a situation where a previously illegal activity or action is designated legal. When legal behavior is suddenly reclassified as illegal, that is called “criminalization.” In a civilized society, how is it that the traditional hunting of indigenous peoples results in them being subject to the legal system of a different culture? In the past, hunters were the pride of the tribe, but they are now labeled criminals by the legal system because the prevailing political-economic system declines to respect cultural diversity. By focusing on one example and creating a work , the artist identifies this phenomenon and highlights the contradictory nature of existing law. ( Translation by TB2014)
