"1895" tells the story of the resistance against the Japanese invasion in 1895 (the biggest war in Taiwan's history). After the 1894 Sino-Japanese war, the Qing government ceded Taiwan to Japan. After hearing the news, some groups of Taiwanese people organized their own resistance to establish the Taiwan Republic.
After the Japanese military on the northeast coast of Taiwan most officials fled to China and Taipei was taken with minimal effort. Three young Taiwanese youths, Tang-hsing We, Hsiang Hsu, Shao-tsu Chiang, organized a guerrilla front to fight the Japanese.
- The budget for "1895" was NT$60 million (U.S. 1.8 million), while filming took place in over 30 different locations in Taiwan.
