Dear TAPS members,
TAPS is proud to present a special movie screening of the film “Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale.” The film is set during Japanese rule on Taiwan, and closely describes the events of the Wushe Incident of 1930. Mona Rudao, a chief of Mahebu village of Seediq people, led his people in an uprising against the ruling Japanese. The film has won numerous awards and stars Lin Ching-Tai, Da Ching, Umin Boya, Masanobu Ando, Landy Wen, Hsu Yi-fan, Irene Luo, Vivian Hsu, Chie Tanaka, and Ma Ju-lung. This is a unique cultural event for TAPS. If you enjoy attending the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), you won’t want to miss this event.
Please save the date Friday, 4/27. Come experience a great film and support Taiwanese films. The 21:45 showing is likely to sell out, so please purchase your tickets in advance at Fandango if you are serious about going. The seating is first-come-first-serve. If you can’t make it on Friday, this movie is running until Thursday, May 3rd.

Hear what critics have to say about the film:
“the filmmaking has a raw physicality and crazy conviction it’s hard
not to admire.” – Justin Chang, Variety
“No martial arts here, but skillfully realistic fighting with spears
and machetes, guns and cannons, which spare no one.” – Deborah Young
“…a visceral and powerful action drama” – Screen Daily
