Taiwan Film Series Film Screening Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale

About this Event

Dear Sir or Madam,

I write to invite you to attend the reception and screening of Taiwanese film Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale at Philip Carter Family Auditorium, Christchurch Art Gallery on 8 May. The reception starts at 12:30pm, and the screening begins at 1:15pm. This film screening, along with two others, is part of the Taiwan Film Series co-organised by the Research Initiative of Taiwan Studies (RITS) at the University of Canterbury and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in New Zealand and sponsored by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture.

The most expensive historical epic film ever produced in Taiwan, Warriors of the Rainbow is centred around an indigenous clan-based people living in harmony with nature until their way of life is threatened when violent interlopers from another culture arrive, intent on seizing their natural resources and enslaving them. Given the genetic and cultural link between Indigenous Taiwanese and Māori people, the public screening of Warriors of the Rainbow aims to facilitate the mutual understanding between New Zealanders and Taiwanese immigrants in the local community. In addition to TECO representatives from the North Island, we are also expecting the participation from different groups of people in the Canterbury region.

We hope you are able to join us for this film screening. Please RSVP via the Eventbrite linke below.
