War"Blue Line of Defense" Movie Comment ary Copy
This is a real war of the moment
The world's youngest country
Civil war broke out in South Sudan because of unrest
Fierce armed conflict
Caused a lot of casualties
40% of the population faces an existential crisis
100,000 people suffer from famine
About 383,000 people died
Most of them are innocent civilians
The international community is very concerned about this
The international community is very concerned about the destruction of life in a time of peace
From the humanitarian point of view
other countries should lend a helping hand in time
So at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly
China made a clear commitment
To build an 8,000-strong peacekeeping force
To go to the battlefield of South Sudan in batches
(Defend national honor)
(to maintain world peace)
This is an honorable but dangerous mission
For the rescue team
South Sudan is the closest place in the world to death
Wang Zhen, the company commander, called his daughter-in-law to tell her he was going on a mission.
On the other end, he received a long silence.
(She said how long will it take?)
(I said I think it will take more than a year)
When she heard this, she stopped talking.
Before the departure of the instructor Lu Chengjun
His elementary school son pulled him out and asked him a question.
(He pulled me aside and asked me a question)
(You're not going to die, are you?)
All the soldiers and their families knew in their hearts
What was in store for them was probably life and death.
（"The test of life and death)
(Never simulated on this exercise field)
They were the second group to arrive in this African country.
A total of 700 soldiers and officers
They'll be in South Sudan for a year of peacekeeping.
South Sudan has both government and anti-government forces.
The main purpose of the peacekeeping force is
To protect the local population and the refugees in the camps.
Not to be biased towards either side
The Chinese infantry is also taking on the role of
the responsibility of protecting the UN camps
One of the companies is deployed to guard and stand sentry around the perimeter
day and night
Soldiers wore bulletproof vests weighing 30 kilograms in temperatures up to 50 degrees
Wearing 30 kg bulletproof undershirts
When they came off the post, they were covered in heat rash.
That's not all.
Because they are at the outermost part of the camp
So basically every day you can hear gunfire
(as long as people are okay)
The situation in the refugee camp
The situation in the camp is much more complicated than the peacekeepers expected.
Possession of firearms
Possession of drugs
Vicious incidents of vandalism and looting occur frequently
A little friction between two children
Can lead to thousands of people armed fighting
All these things need to be handled by the peacekeeping forces
Put down your weapons
Otherwise we will have to shoot
Peacekeepers also have to conduct occasional
Long-range patrols and short-range patrols.
Often they will meet with local troops.
The level of danger can be imagined
(Not to mention the fight)
And peacekeeping troops have an important principle
Only when equipment and personnel are under mortal threat
They can only use force if their equipment and personnel are under mortal threat.
（If we are attacked)
(We will fire back)
The most wounded in war.
It is always the children who are the most innocent.
The children of South Sudan are in dire straits.
They have no clothes to wear.
They are often bitten by mosquitoes and insects
and even contract serious diseases as a result
Chinese peacekeepers will carry some medicine with them
To give those children simple treatment
For them, going to school is a luxury.
(I don't understand a word you're saying)
One morning a group of children marched down the road.
The reason was that the government had closed down a local elementary school.
Despite the difficult conditions and the war
But the children often had smiles on their faces.
They treat these soldiers from China as their close friends
That's why the peacekeepers are here.
Through their efforts
to bring even a little bit of stability and peace to the refugees here.
However, despite the international aid and pressure
The war in South Sudan still hasn't subsided
It has even intensified
The war is spreading rapidly
Even to the peacekeeping troops
Outside the UN camps where they are stationed
Fierce firefights are taking place in full view of soldiers
The government forces deployed heavy tanks and weapons to pursue the anti-government forces.
Two soldiers of the anti-government forces took refuge in a thatched hut
A pickup truck of the government forces
A four-barrel 12.7mm heavy machine gun was mounted.
They shot at the broken hut for four or five minutes.
The whole hut was smashed to pieces.
The real war is much more brutal than we can imagine.
（"This is war)
（"You don't even have to aim your gun.)
（"Where do you feel the enemy is?)
（"Directly towards that place)
（"Raise the gun with both hands)
（"Shoot directly at that place)
Chinese peacekeeping infantry battalion soldiers
Are still standing by around the camp
Faced with the risk of being wounded by stray bullets and gunfire at any time
Although the infantrymen were very vigilant
But guns have no eyes
Death came unexpectedly in the midst of the battle
(I can't go on with this)
This is the day the battle broke out
The fourth fierce exchange of fire
A black line flew over the soldier's head
Then came the walkie-talkie.
And then the news came over the intercom that made everyone's heart skip a beat.
(battalion duty room)
(We've got a wounded man.)
One of our unit's infantry fighting vehicles
was hit by a rocket.
Smoke instantly rises from the surrounding area.
As the temperature of the vehicle rises.
If there is an explosion inside
At least the surrounding area must be no one alive
Soldiers rushed into the car with fire extinguishers and risked their lives.
Military doctors rushed to the vicinity
All efforts to treat the wounded
The soldier was lying in the ditch and could not move.
A comrade was seriously wounded.
The other soldiers were stone-faced
It's hard to get over the shock of what just happened
They said there was a comrade named Yang Shupeng
He was badly injured.
After scrambling to save his life
Still couldn't pull him back
The other comrades who fought alongside him were devastated
A man of iron and steel
But what was even more heartbreaking
was to bring the sad news to the families of the fallen soldiers.
(Shupeng was very brave)
（"And very strong)
(Yiming, you have a good father)
The bodies of martyrs Li Lei and Yang Shupeng are being transferred.
The UN is in charge.
Comrades proposed to leave a little time no matter what
Organize a farewell ceremony
In South Sudan there are no flowers to buy
The instructor said that even if all the flowers in the courtyard were plucked
We had to make two bouquets of flowers.
The violence in South Sudan's capital has worsened.
The international community has gradually lost confidence in the truce.
Many countries are evacuating with their citizens
Only Chinese soldiers are holding on to that place until the end
(As long as we don't receive any evacuation orders)
(Not a single person said to leave the place)
Since April 2015
China has sent six peacekeeping infantry battalions to South Sudan
More than 30,000 peacekeepers
Performed 24 different peacekeeping missions
Among the five permanent members of the UN so far
countries that have contributed the most
The heroes have left
But peacekeeping operations are far from over
The sixth Chinese peacekeeping infantry battalion
Entering South Sudan in 2019
The blue helmets under the red flag
will continue to shine in this war-torn land
Blue Line of Defense is not a conventional war film
But it is more shocking than many war movies
It is shocked by the realism that comes over you
In addition to the real war scenes with real bullets
And the real emotions filled with tears
It is said that cinema is the art of dreaming
But a hardcore documentary like this one
But hardcore documentaries like this one have the power to hit the heart directly.
We broaden our understanding and knowledge of the world and human nature
Because it's true
So we can relate to it.
I hope this kind of fiction-free and special effects-free
Objective and restrained realistic records
can appear in our Chinese cinemas more and more often
