今夜的煙火依然燦爛?

二零一三年十月一日,維港上空,煙花不再。

一九九七年回歸到現在,十月一日對很多像我這樣在香港土生土長的八十後來說,只是一個公眾假期的代名詞;對於國與國慶,印象模糊得很。只知道那天晚上會有煙花匯演。但論受歡迎程度,始終不及年初二的煙火,因為那才是屬於香港的集體回憶。直至去年發生海難,我開始思考國慶煙花賦予香港人的意義,加上中港矛盾的信息每日絡繹不絕地在社交網絡傳播,我在想:「到底問題發生在那裡?中港之間的結真的無法解開?」於是,我便開始執筆創作《拾。壹》。

《拾。壹》說的是十個發生在國慶煙花匯演前的故事。三名香港人和一名內地人,他們有著各自的經歷與背景,共同生活在一幢唐樓內。在十個煙花匯演前夕,有人很好奇、有人很傷心、有人很野蠻、有人很無奈。我們嘗試藉他們各自的故事及對話中的偏見,提融合,講衝突,看誤解。煙花縱然奪目,但我們真的看得見嗎?

作為一個香港人,我不希望看到自己生活的地方被強行內地化,更不希望某部份亂事的內地人來騷擾我們的城市。作為一個中國人,我希望看到這個民族能有一天在懂得互相尊重彼此的文化及想法中融合。或者,要將香港跟內地人的爭執消除是難過登天;但我衷心盼望這一天的到臨。但首先要做的,是開放、聆聽與接納。這,才是香港人所渴望的回歸;那時候,我們便會明白國慶的意義。那麼,就算煙花不再,維港依然會耀眼。
