The Stories of Rainbow


In the Atayal legend, the soul of a deceased person will arrive at the Atayal heaven via the rainbow after they die. And the face tattoo is the only way that they can rely on to get to the rainbow. This film is a documentary about the viewpoints of the elders who have tattooed their faces. It portrays how the elders go with their everyday life in the mountains; it also shows how deeply the elders long for the lost family members, friends and the homeland, as well as their feelings about the impending return to the rainbow.
