Abstract: 由香港导演毕国智自编自导的《海南鸡饭》,是新加坡电影委员会 (Singapore Film Commission) 通过“媒体21”(Medial 21) 计划资助拍摄的第一部国际电影。因《海南鸡饭》是此计划赞助的第一部电影,而引起了一些学者的注意与研究,然而目前为止的学术研究尚未成熟,大都以二手材料或个人意见为研究材料,缺乏准确性和可靠度。本文通过采访导演毕国智确保本论文研究成果的准确性和可信度。本文试图探究《海南鸡饭》在新加坡国家机构的赞助下,承载了政府的商业意图和意识形态。 本文首先结合新加坡电影发行与发展生态的情形,通过电影的资金赞助和拍摄的过程,看新加坡政府如何通过《海南鸡饭》制造一个开明的新加坡形象和推动经济发展。然后回归到电影的内容,结合拉康 (Jacques Lacan) 的理论揭示新加坡政府如何利用母亲形象去传播意识形态和价值观念,而凸显的却是新加坡政府的霸权主义。最后看同性恋身份和刻板印象如何被主流社会建构,及《海南鸡饭》如何尝试去打破同性恋的刻板印象,并结合新加坡的法律和审查制度探讨新加坡政府的反同态度。Directed by Hong Kong director, Kenneth Bi, "Rice Rhapsody" was the first international film funded by the Singapore Film Commission (SFC) under the "Media 21" program. As the first production under this program, the movie attracted some academic attention but the research are largely immature and either based on second-hand information or personal opinions and analysis, which suggests that there may be a lack of accuracy and reliability. An interview with director Kenneth Bi provided concrete basis for accurate and credible first-hand information. This paper attempts to explore the government’s commercial intentions and ideology influence in their funding of "Rice Rhapsody ". Firstly, this paper provides a background on the local film industry, then discusses how the government creates an image of open-minded society in Singapore and promotes economic development through the funding and filming and process. Next, this paper apply Jacques Lacan’s theory on the content of the film to unveil how the Singapore government makes use of the image of a mother character to preach desired ideology and moral values associated, and in turn highlight the Singapore government's hegemonism. Finally, this paper discusses how the identity and stereotype of queers are constructed by mainstream society and how “Rice Rhapsody " attempts to dispel them in a Singapore environment where the government opposes homosexuality through its laws and censorship controls.
