Description: Showing here in its abridged form (shortened from the original 276 minute version), Warriors of the Rainbow is an epic historical saga that became both Taiwan’s most expensive film to date as well as its official submission to the 84th Academy Awards. Based on the Wushe Incident of 1930, Wei’s sweeping cinematic narrative tells the story of a showdown between the aboriginal Taiwanese tribe Seediq and the Japanese village of Wushe, with the former attempting to launch a war on the latter as revenge for the traumas inflicted on the Seediq people by Japanese colonialists. Wei’s sweeping cinematic narrative – a passion project over a decade in the making – highlights the best and worst of humanity on both sides of the fight, and is as rich a cinematic masterpiece as it is a thoughtful exploration of Taiwan’s history and the devastation of war. —Palm Springs Film Festival
