The recent hot topic is absolutely about the 89th Oscar Academy Awards ceremony, there is an interesting phenomenon that more and more actors from other countries are gradually nominated by Oscar committee. This is a positive trend, just as a member of the Hollywood community said at the ceremony: film, as one of art form, has no boundary any longer, it is a global community. I can’t agree more with that.
Film as a special language of our era, there is no doubt that film has certain attractive magic, to some extent, it delivers both feelings and emotions of our human being in a rather effective and atheistic way. In addition, it can explicitly convey meaning by visual language, sound and picture consist of primary elements of movie, every art form use its own original language to communicate with their targeting audience, for example, painting’s art languages are color and lines; in terms of music, the art language should be note as well as instrument. The question is which kind of art language is better to get audience involved contrasted with others? Which one is more dominate?
From my perspective, all kinds of art language are equal even though they offer largely different tools and ways, art should be regarded as an inclusive group concept rather than an individually single one. Human being is ingenious to create a bunch of art languages to convey multiple complicated feelings making human being keep more creative and understandable, the way in which we convey our feeling indicates that human being probably is the most talented species on the plant, even though, genetic speaking, there is only 2% difference between us and the rest of species. According to that, we can make a prediction that human being also is the most sensitive and emotional.
I would like to share another story about myself, I remembered that when I was a little girl, theater is a holy place filled with happiness and magic for me, I can get lots of inspiration when I got there, not only from movie itself but also from public space (lobby, large screen) and audience. Sometime, even though, I did not catch general meaning of story, however, I was impressed by the action and emotion of the actors, when I got back home, I always imagining that how the plot will be. When I grow up, I called those kinds of memorable experience as art enlightenment, it is significant and necessary for me. In my point of view, art is a way by which you can realize environment and communicate with the world. Art is an abstraction of our life but extremely surpass it. Art is a language, a thought way, a form, an existence.
