UPCOMING FEATURE FILM ON FORMOSA ABORIGINES
"Warrior of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale"
The most expensive Taiwanese made film tells the tale of legendary aboriginal chief Mouna Rudo, who led a bloody rebellion against Japanese colonizers in the 1930. The story is based on the Wushe Incident, the largest, and last, uprising against the Japanese by island's aboriginal inhabitants.
The Los Angeles Times ran a story, by Scarlet Cheng, on the film in the April, 30 Calendar section.
