Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale
Dir. Te-Sheng Wei. 2011, 150 mins. With Lin Ching-Tai, Umin Boya, Ando Masanobu. In one of the grandest productions in Taiwanese film history, Warriors of the Rainbow details the 1930 rebellion against Japanese troops of 300 warriors who have been forced to renounce their traditions and work as laborers. Ching-Tai (himself a member of Taiwan’s aboriginal community) anchors the film as Mona Rudao, a tribal chief who overcomes his lassitude to lead his people on a desperation-fueled mission.
