Mouna Rudo was raised among the Seediq people, an indigenous tribe in Taiwan, and as he grew to be a man he became a member of the Seediq Bale. Rudo's way of life was threatened by the Japanese in 1895. In 1930, as Rudo sees the traditions and honor of his people stripped away, he brings together a group of former Seediq Bale soldiers, many of whom have been reduced to infighting, and mold them into a revolutionary army. Rudo and his friends confront Japanese occupation troops at a youth athletic event, leading to a violent confrontation between the Seediq forces and their oppressors. Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale is the first part of a two-part Taiwanese edition of the film.
Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale (Seediq: Seediq Bale ; literally Real Seediq or Real Men; Chinese: 賽德克·巴萊; pinyin: Sàidékè Bālái) is a 2011 Taiwanese historical drama film directed by Wei Te-sheng and produced by John Woo, based on the 1930 Wushe Incident in central Taiwan.The full version of the film shown in Taiwan is divided into two parts—Part 1 is called "太陽旗" (The Sun Flag), and Part 2 is called "彩虹橋" (The Rainbow Bridge), running a total of 4 hours and 36 minutes.
