Seediq Bale

Postby kate.lin » 02 Apr 2009, 21:27

A new movie project of WEI De-sheng, director of Cape No. 7, is making progress. Here is a blog of the movie: Seediq Bale, a story about Wushen event.

I like those drawings they posted online and hope he will eventually get enough fund to film his Taiwan trilogy.

I'm glad this project is going forward. It's been a long time coming, but he got a major financial boost from Cape No. 7.

I look forward to seeing the movie (hopefully with English subtitles, as my Seediq is somewhat rusty).

The Hollywood Reporter recently published an interview with Wei Te-sheng (in English).

Damn, yeah, I went to see it today, and it looks like there's no English subs.

Anyone found them at a theatre somewhere?
I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

Thanks for posting this bu. I was going to go see it today too and checked first. Nope, no English subtitles. If you go to the movie's website you'll see lots of email complaints.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

They must have subtitles for audiences in, say, the US or UK.

I guess the maker of the movie is asking for it to be pirated.
