FILM/影片:《Everywhere Now》
Bill Harvey/ 2008/ US/ 98min

寶藏巖位於台北市最重要自行車道途中,因此城市遊牧影展決定創造一種新式電影院。舊式汽車電影院幾乎看不見了,所以我們要往前看,來做個 「腳踏車電影院」,邀請台北市民踏過自行車道跟我們一起欣賞電影與寶藏巖的獨特美麗夜景。


Because Treasure Hill is located along one of Taipei’s busiest bicycle paths, we’ve decided to create a new type of Drive-in Theater, and we’re inviting all of Taipei to drive in on their bicycles and watch some films with us. We’ll be showing one film a week for about six weeks in October and November. Aside from a special surprise we have prepared for Halloween, these films will be documentaries we’ve chosen because they’re both entertaining and tell us important things about the world around us.

比爾哈維的«沙拉油帶你環遊»中共通的議題不只振奮人心但也揪人心弦。導演比爾於2008年將自有1981年產的柴油賓士改裝為使用沙拉油的環保汽車,並開啟一段將近八千英里的長途旅程。 比爾說:「想像一下……連鎖速食店將會變成加油站。」equal parts comedy/tragedy立即拆解他的計畫,將電影的焦點由他的車轉移至他的人。超低氣溫、艱難道路和引擎無情地故障,讓這部紀錄片更像在懺悔自白。當他咒和罵罵按

Billy Harvey’s “Everywhere Now” is as much inspiring and heart wrenching, as it is universally relatable. It depicts an almost 8000 mile odyssey Billy undertook in the winter of 2008 after converting his 1981 Mercedes diesel to run on waste vegetable oil. “Think of it…Fast food chains could be the gas stations of the future” Harvey exclaims. Equal parts comedy/tragedy, the almost immediate unraveling of his plan quickly shifts the focus of this movie from his car to his character. Freezing temperatures, impossible drives, and the relentless malfunctioning of his engine slant the movie away from “documentary” and more toward “confessional”. It is here, as he honks and sputters his way across America that his insights and indomitable spirit expose the true heart of this movie…him. What we recognize of him in ourselves is what makes this story so moving. “Everywhere Now” may be a touchstone for us all, giving pause to question and almost surely encouraging one to just keep going.
