2011, 132 minutes, MA15+
Directed by Wei Te-sheng 魏德聖

This epic film, one of Taiwan’s greatest box office hits, recounts the violent events of the Wushe Incident, an indigenous uprising against Japanese rule in 1930. Beautifully set in Taiwan’s Central Mountain Range, and receiving both praise and controversy, this film offers a compelling take on violent responses to colonisation.
