In the mountains of Taiwan; two races clashed in defense of their faiths. One believed in rainbows; the other believed in the sun. Neither side realized they both believed in the same sky. Wei Te-Sheng's epic film WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE retells an extraordinary episode from 20th-century history which is little- known; even in Taiwan. Between 1895 and 1945; a Japanese colony inhabited the island and subdued the aboriginal tribes who first settled the land. Seediq leader Mouna Rudo (Lin Ching- Tai) forged a coalition with other tribal leaders and plotted a rebellion against their Japanese colonial masters. The initial uprising took the Japanese by surprise; but they soon sent in their army to crush the rebellion; using aircraft and poison gas. The most expensive Taiwanese film ever made! Written and directed by Wei Te-Sheng. Starring: Lin Ching-Tai, Umin Boya, Ando Masanobu. 185 min. English subtitled.
