Warriors of the Rainbow (Seediq Bale)THAI PREMIERE / Taiwan / 2011 / 154 mins.
Screening Date : 26.01.2012 (13:00) Venue : cinema3
Between 1895 and 1945, the island of Taiwan was a Japanese colony inhabited not only by the majority (Han Chinese immigrants) but also by the remnants of the aboriginal tribes who first settled the mountainous land. In 1930 Mouna Rudo, the leader of one of the Seediq tribes forged a coalition with other tribal leaders and plotted a rebellion against their Japanese colonial masters, taking them by surprise at a sporting event. The uprising was almost entirely successful. But the Japanese soon sent in their army to crush the rebellion, using aircraft and poison gas.
The relatively small force of Seediq tribesmen stood no chance of defeating the might of Japan. But they were sustained by the beliefs and myths which had nourished their tribes since time immemorial.

Ways of the Sea (Halaw)Philippines / 2010 / 78 mins.
Screening Date : 29.01.2012 (16:00) Venue : cinema3

Sheron Dayoc's first feature proves that less is definitely more. Ways of the Sea could easily have ended up as a routine social-issue drama with nothing to recommend itself apart from the worthy subject matter - the business of boat people between the southwest Philippines and Malaysia's Sabah. Instead, Dayoc has crafted a beautiful miniature that runs only 75 minutes, doesn't hang a crusading heart on its sleeve, and leaves more unsaid and unshown than ever reaches the screen.

Do you want to succeed? Even if you will be doomed to death for it?”
The merciless life of idols, behind the scenes
Girl group Pink Dolls are virtually unknown, overshadowed by other more popular idols.
However, after covering the mysterious song “WHITE” for their second album, they start to gain popularity.
Pink Dolls are Eun-ju, a former back dancer and de facto leader, isolated by the others for her age; Jenny, the vocalist whose voice is unsteady at higher pitches; A-rang, the beauty of the group who is addicted to cosmetic surgery; and Shin-ji, whose only talent is rapping and dance.
As Pink Dolls’ popularity skyrockets, so too does the competitiveness and jealousy among the group’s members when the fight for lead vocalist intensifies. Strangely, however, each time one of the young women steps up to sing the defining “WHITE,” she becomes involved in a hideous accident. Eun-ju senses that “WHITE” is a cursed melody and digs into its history…
