導演歐文傑:我在年輕示威者身上學了很多

6月12日下午4時多,《十年》(方言)、《樹大招風》導演歐文傑身處金鐘:「當時全部係防暴,喺度放催涙彈,我好似突然被包圍咁,我已經高舉雙手,都俾防暴打咗一棍,佢望一望我,見我無反應,都呆一呆,我舉晒手,又無鬧佢呀。跟住我打斜角咁走,同時見到年輕示威者俾幾個防暴打緊,有個女仔跌低咗,朋友即刻扶起……」不說,還以為他在拍一場槍戰。 問歐文傑有甚麼跟特首林鄭月娥說,他答:「唔想同佢講嘢。落台啦!林鄭落台係好有象徵意義,係話俾未來嘅特首聽,你哋嘅施政唔可以淨係面向中央、面向1200個選委,係要面向香港人。林鄭管理香港,係四條人命、四個家庭,咁多傷痕,係全香港人一齊承受緊,所以唯一想同講,就只係:『你落台啦』。」 訪問完結,記者準備離去,歐文傑突然又紅著眼說:「我喺年輕示威者身上,學咗好多嘢。」過去月餘,相信不只歐導有這感觸。
