Dir. Te-Sheng Wei, 144 min, Seediq, Japanese and Taiwanese with English subtitles
This film depicts the Wushe Incident, which occurred in central Taiwan during the Japanese rule. When the Indigenous Seediq Bale, believing in the Rainbow, and the Japanese, believing in the Sun, met one another, they fought. The leader of Seediq Bale, Mona Rudao, led 300 warriors fighting against 3000 Japanese troopers. The only thing they forgot was whether it was the Rainbow or the Sun they believed in; they actually believed in the same sky.
