Summary 內容:
她家的客廳,是世界華人作家的沙龍;她一生的故事,是一次20世紀的文學壯遊;她對伴侶的摯愛,是跨越三生三世的生死不渝。

她形容自己是一棵樹,「根在大陸,幹在台灣,枝葉在愛荷華」。她一生飄盪,卻以自己的所能,提供全世界上千位作家們一段溫暖的歸屬。白先勇、鍾玲、林懷民、蔣勳,以及諾貝爾文學獎得主莫言、畢飛宇、香港作家李怡、董啟章、潘耀明、鄧小樺、潘國靈都曾是她家客廳的座上賓。

她是創辦「國際寫作計劃」(IWP),被稱作「世界文學組織之母」的聶華苓,20世紀華人文學藝壇最重要的推手。

One Tree Three Lives is an intimate film on the novelist Hualing Nieh Engle, who has been a major influence on generations of writers in the Chinese Diaspora, and beyond.
The film reveals a woman of unusual charisma, integrity and determination, and a person in continual exile. Interviews with 26 writers such as Mo Yin and Pai Hsien-yung present a lively variety of views and anecdotes.

Hualing Nieh Engle calls herself a tree, with roots in China, the trunk in Taiwan, and the many leaves in Iowa, USA. Born and raised in wartime China, she left Wuhan in 1949 for peace in Taipei, and then left for love in 1964 to the United States. She is the author of 24 books of fiction and non-fiction, which have been translated into various languages. Perhaps more importantly, she initiated the prestigious International Writing Program at the University of Iowa with her poet-husband Paul Engle – a world-renowned platform for writers since 1967, for which they were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976.

Bio of Speakers座談嘉賓:
陳安琪,香港導演。曾執導《愛情謎語》、《花街時代》、《窺情》等劇情長片,後因覺得自己的電影創作題材與香港商業社會環境不太吻合,80年代後,陳安琪便刻意與拍攝劇情片保持距離,20年來她轉戰廣告界,並拿下多項國際廣告大獎。2008年,陳安琪導演的紀錄片《愛與狗同行》獲得第45屆臺灣金馬獎“最佳紀錄片”提名。2012年,紀錄影片《三生三世聶華苓》獲香港電影評論學會選為「2012年度推薦電影」,並獲第十三屆華語電影傳媒大獎提名最佳電影及最佳導演。最新制作的紀錄片《水底行走的人》藉導演與畫家黃仁逵互動過程以看其人性,獲2017日惹國際紀錄片影展最佳紀錄片,並於2018年3月香港國際電影節上映。

Angie Chen has been making films since 1979. She was born in Shanghai, brought up in Hong Kong and Taiwan, received her MFA from UCLA, and lived in America for over more than a decade. Her first documentary, Der Besuch (The Visit, 1981), was about her father, and was filmed in Germany before her return to Hong Kong. After graduating, she returned to Hong Kong in the 1980s and directed several feature films followed, namely Maybe It’s Love (1984), My Name Ain’t Suzie (1985), and Chaos By Design (1988), before she became disillusioned with the possibilities of creating original and interesting work within the territory’s commercial industry. She turned to making commercials and publicity shorts before re-emerging as a documentary filmmaker nearly two decades after the release of her last commercial feature, with the intimate portrait This Darling Life (2008), the acclaimed biographical work on the novelist Hualing Nieh Engle, One Tree Three Lives (2012) and the latest lively documentary about the artist Yank Wong, I’ve Got the Blues (2017). This Darling Life nominated Best Documentary in the Taiwan Golden Horse Awards; One Tree Three Lives world premiered in the 2012 Hong Kong International Film Festival, and Asia-premiere in the 2012 Taipei Film Festival; and I’ve Got the Blues has won Best Feature Documentary (FFD) in 2017.
