Seediq Bale

I'm wondering if this film will ever make it to the US. It's about the Seediq people from the Atayal tribe in Taiwan during Japan's rule.



I've heard that I have a bit of Atayal blood in me because my grandmother's grandmother on my dad's side was an Atayal woman. They attribute my un-chinese features of bigger eyes and darker skin to this connection.

The first half of the 4 hour film is already playing in Taiwan, and the second half will be out on 9/30. It apparently was in the 68th Annual Venice Film Festival, which is a huge step for Taiwanese cinematography. Kudos to the director, Wei-Te Sheng!
