Synopsis:

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.

林懷民︰「在柏林圍牆被挖下來之前,那個牆,在愛荷華已經被拆除了。」
  莫言︰「我總覺得她的人格的這種內核跟西方人不一樣,身上有這種英雄氣概,甚至俠義的情緒。」
  蔣勳︰「我總記得華苓的大笑,她的笑讓我覺得是了不起的,因為,她一生所經歷的遭遇,她可以用笑聲讓它,可以淡掉。」

  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

  她出生在戰亂動盪的民國大陸,在台灣歷經了自由與迫害的矛盾,最後,她在美國愛荷華找到了摯愛,找到了一生中最重要的使命。她的一輩子,恍如一段三生三世的旅行,交織出當代海外傑出華人作家的清晰身影、蒼勁與美麗,包括林懷民、白先勇、蔣勳和張大春,都曾經是她家客廳的座上賓,她是聶華苓,「世界文學組織之母」。【三生三世 聶華苓】不僅近距離展現了聶華苓的流亡人生、文學創作和人格魅力,溫婉地點出聶華苓的人、她的家,她的志業與作品,也見證了她和詩人伴侶生死不渝的堅定愛情。
