Activity: Talks or PresentationsOther Invited Talks or Presentations


Pusu Qhuni – Seediq Bale is documentary filmmaker T’ang Hsiang-chu’s latest documentary. Keeping the same order and translating literally, the title means “base-tree – people who are true.” The documentary is a pilgrimage to the tree whence the Seediq originated and which is located a few dozen kilometres through the mountains from Wushe, or Musha in Japanese. It is also a quest for the traditional ideal of humanity, the seediq bale, which informs Wei Te-sheng’s feature film. Finally, it documents the experiences of the descendants of the survivors of the Musha Rebellion, including Mona Rudo’s daughter Mahung Mona, eight decades after the fact.
