Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale
This release is the 2.5 hour international cut of Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale which condenses the two-part film into one feature. Seediq Bale Part 1 sows the seeds for the film`s powerful final conflict, depicting how the Seediq people are demoralized and finally reborn by their continued subjugation by the Japanese. Stripped of their native hunting grounds and forced to work deforesting the very mountains they called home, the rival Seediq tribes rallied together and violently rose up against years of Japanese repression in the 1930 Wushe Incident. Part II depicts the grisly guerrilla warfare employed as the Seediq, led by Chief Mona Rudao (Lin Ching Tai), use Taiwan`s mountains and forests to their advantage. But the Japanese employ modern warfare - airplanes, cannons, tear gas, and explosives - to mount their counterattack and the vastly outnumbered Seediq can only withstand for so long.
