"63 Years On" - "Comfort Women" to Tell Story in Documentary

2009/04/29 Source

Tears of Ex-Sex Slaves for Japanese Imperial Army

The documentary "63 Years On" will be shown at a free screening at Jogyesa Temple theatre on May 17, 2009. This is an opportunity for both the Korean and international communities to further engage with the "comfort women" issue and to support the continuing fight for justice.

In this film, award-winning Korean director Kim Dong-won presents the harrowing experiences of 5 international survivors of Japanese Military Sexual Slavery. The very personal telling of their experiences is matched with excellent research and archival footage to create a powerfully honest, determined and often heartbreaking documentary. While this gripping film may evoke great sadness and anger, the bravery displayed will truly inspire all who see it.

The House of Sharing International Outreach Team works to raise awareness of the issue of Japanese military sexual slavery and to support the Halmoni in their on-going struggle for historical reconciliation and justice. The team is comprised of both foreign and local volunteers who lead visits at the House of Sharing in English, and work to highlight the continuing crimes against humanity in the form of sexual violence during war, experienced to this day by women and children across the world.
