The Taiwanese epic war movie "Seediq Bale" premiered yesterday in Beijing, reports.

Produced by John Woo and directed by Wei Tesheng, the movie tells the story of a battle waged by the island's aboriginal Seediq people against the Japanese invaders that ruled Taiwan from 1895 to 1945.

Wei attended the event with a group of Taiwanese aborigines. Director Chen Guofu and actor Wu Jing were also spotted there.

Wei told the media that the film's star-studded cast would not appear at any promotional events on the mainland.

"Any intentional activity would be an insult to history," Wei said. "And I hope audiences can focus on the movie."

The movie will be screened on the mainland beginning May 10.
