On their Facebook page recently, film distributor WellGo USA announced that they'd created a new fan page for their next North American release Warriors Of The Rainbow: Seediq Bale, which lists the release date as being April 2012. This is a film we've covered extensively here at 24FPS, and given it's been nominated for 6 Asian Film Awards (including Best Picture) and recently made it to the short list for Best Foreign Language film at this year's Academy Awards, it seems like the time for this film has come!
Synopsis: Set in 1930’s Formosa (now Taiwan) and based on true events, the film depicts the valiant but doomed struggle of more than 300 native Seediq warriors who, overcoming long standing and divisive inter-tribal rivalries, unite and launch a rebellion against their Japanese overseers. Fighting with ancient guns, spears and minimal weaponry and seeking to reclaim their land, their dignity and their honour, they took on the overwhelming force of the well armed Japanese imperial army. Driven by years of oppression and calling on the bravery and spirit of their ancestors, the 300 warriors using stealth, cunning and guerrilla tactics battle for freedom.
