Whitey Strikes Back

誰說老外來台灣只會教英文?薪水高休閒時間多的老外們也會拍些很棒的片子! 「玻璃箱」遠赴高雄與檳榔西施對話、「Year of the Cock」帶你體驗衝浪的刺激樂趣、「Santa’s Shitty Night」滑稽逗趣讓你笑開懷、「Have a Seat Please」和椅子一起動起來、還有「Chick-A-Wah」裡的變態玩偶!之外還有兩部本土作,衝浪紀錄片「浪人」,以及深入抓娃娃機器的神奇次文化的「Please Insert Coin」。

Who says foreigners just teach English? High salaries and ample leisure also leave time for filmmaking. Here, Matt Finlin delivers his paean to the betel nut girl, “The Glass Box.” There is hyperactive surf editing from Jason Sedor and a hilarious all-night bender by Shawn McClelland in “Santa’s Shitty Night.” But the program is not totally restricted to the confines of the Shida White Ghetto. There’s also Urs P. Twellmann’s animation from Switzerland and Jaco Yu’s poetic surf film “Wave Man.” And “Please Insert Coin” is a fantastic doc that goes deeper into the subculture of Dream Catcher players than we ever thought possible.

This feature documentary film traces the life of Bob Moog (1934-2005) who invented the modern day synthesizer and was a pivotal figure in the history of electronic music, shaping musical styles ranging from Funk to New Wave to Techno. Moog’s story is told here by following he talks with and watches performances by a slew of legendary musicians, including Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Bernie Worrell, Money Mark, DJ Spooky and Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys). Early on, Moog was captivated by electronic sounds and spent much of his life building synthesizers. The first models were as big as telephone switchboards and required hours of set up. The original soundtrack features Moog music by Stereolab, The Album Leaf, Bernie Worrel & Bootsy Collins, Tortoise and many others.
