This epic film, produced by John Woo and one of Taiwan’s box office hits, recounts the violent events of the Wushe Incident, a Seediq 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.
