• We’re here, we’re Seediq, so get used to it!

The title may suggest a documentary on badass gay rights activists (and so does the subtitle, come to think of it: Seediq Bale is an aboriginal term that translates roughly to “real men”) but this 2011 action film in fact depicts the efforts of Taiwan’s indigenous people to fight back against imperial Japanese forces in the early 20th century. It’s the movie of the week at River East’s cozy theater eight, which is fast on its way to becoming Chicago’s best outlet for east Asian genre cinema (current titleholder: the home of Chicago Cinema Society programmer Neil Calderone).
