Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been behind closed doors working hard on a new script. But apart from that, I’ve also been keeping a close eye on the situation in the earthquake struck disaster zone of Ya’an and Guangxi. I had a discussion with my staff and suggested that a group of directors from a television station to visit the disaster zone, and under the condition that they don’t disturb current rescue efforts in the area, they shoot some footage for me so I can better understand what the real situation is like right now. Then I know how to help them. I’ve heard people say that Ya’an is well known for producing tea leaves. Because of this disaster, over 350,000 tea leave farms have been damaged. As soon as I heard this news, I immediately responded and said that I’ll be their Goodwill Ambassador and asked my movie industry friends (as well as friends and fans online) to buy tea leaves from Ya’an. I hope to help them get through these difficult times.

Showing compassion, being open-minded, and remaining calm are very important when facing a disastrous situation. What we should do is the most necessary thing at the most suitable time so that our good intentions are put to good use. We don’t want to waste resources. For example, the temporary houses and buildings that have been built can later be reused. But what I truly hope for is that the schools for children can be rebuilt and can be safely used for many many years. Let’s continue to follow the situation closely and continue to support the construction work in the disaster area.

 

這陣子除了閉關弄劇本,就是關注雅安和廣西情況。我建議電影頻道的平久組織導演去現場,在不影響救援的前提下拍些東西,幫助我們了解那里更真實的情況。听說雅安是很有名的茶產地,這次35万茶農受災嚴重,我馬上要求做他們的公益代言人,號召我的明星朋友和网友們多買雅安的茶葉,幫他們度過難關。

面對災難時的冷靜客觀与愛心都很重要,我們應該在合适的時間做最需要的事情,讓每次愛心都能落到實處,避免資源浪費。例如在搭建的臨時建筑將來可以循環再利用,更希望為孩子們重建的學校房屋可以真正結實,可以安全的使用很多年。希望大家持續關注災后重建工作。
