Bubble Tea will be served for this event.

Director: TANG Hsiang-Chu

Executive Producer: Jimmy HUANG、WEI Te-Sheng

Synopsis:

Eighty years ago, the Seediq people living high in Taiwan's mountains rose up against the oppressive rule of the Japanese government in what went down in history as the "Wushe Incident."

Featuring a wealth of documentation and narrative accounts by the descendants of the rebels, this film takes a rare look into the dark corners of the "Wushe Incident."

WEI Te-Sheng - Producer

Born in 1969, Wei Te-Sheng joined a small production company in 1993 and learned his craft on the job. He has assistant director credits on many films, including Edward Yang’s MAHJONG (1996) and Chen Kuo-Fu’s DOUBLE VISION (2002). He made his debut feature ABOUT JULY as a modest independent production in 1999, winning praise from critics in Taiwan and a Special Mention from the Dragons & Tigers Award jury at Vancouver Film Festival. His second feature, CAPE NO. 7 (2008), was also made on a relatively modest scale but became the highest-grossing Taiwanese film in the history of Taiwan and picked up top prizes at the Golden Horse Awards, Hawaii Film Festival and the Asian Marine Film Festival. The huge success of CAPE NO. 7 helped him to raise the finance to make WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE, a project he has nurtured since the mid-1990s. It kick-started another new wave of Taiwan Cinema. Wei's films tend to explore various aspects of Taiwan's history, bringing new social values and cultural perspectives to local Taiwanese.
