63 Years On
The House of Sharing, the organization I had the chance to visit the Korean grandmothers, former comfort women, with are hosting a documentary screening this Saturday, March 26, 2011. The documentary 63 Years On was directed by award-winning Korean director Kim Dong Won and tells the tales of five international survivors of Japanese Military Sexual Slavery during WWII. He has created a documentary using archival footage, research and personal stories of experiences to make a “gripping film to evoke sadness and anger”.
This Saturday from 3-5 at the Dongguk University Cultural Center Deok Am Seminar Room on the first floor be witness to a, fittingly, 63 minute documentary. It’s free and by doing so you’ll be broadening your awareness of a situation that has been ignored by many and forgotten by many as well. Don’t be one of them. Support these amazing women in their struggle for reconciliation and justice.
Directions: Dongguk University Station (Line 3), Exit 6. Go up the escalator and follow the road until you see Lee Hae Lang Fine Arts Theater. It’s the building on the back side of the theater.
