63 Years On: Film Screening about Comfort Women

Although the tragedies that are affecting Japan right now are serious there is something else to consider thinking about this month. There will be a film screening at The House of Sharing at Dongguk University which will show, in multiple languages with English subtitles, the stories of 5 survivors of the Japanese Military Sexual Slavery during WWII.

I know this sounds pretty serious but let's consider this part of history for a moment and that you have an opportunity to go see a piece of creation about it.

The details:
  • It is free. 
  • The film is in multiple languages and there will be a speaker along with a group discussion.
  • Date: March 26th from 3 - 5pm (the film is 63 min long)
  • At Dongguk University in Seoul at the Cultural Center, Deok Am Seminar Room, 1st Floor
  • How to Get there: Take Line 3 to Dongguk University Station. Take exit 6 and go up the escalator and follow the road until you see Lee Hae Lang Fine Arts Theater...it's the building on the backside of the theater.
  • Info: www.houseofsharing.org                Email:  info@houseofsharing.org 
This looks like a great opportunity to see some history and then talk about it during the discussion period.

From the press release:

This screening provides a window to an episode of Asian and International history which has been willfully ignored by so many for more than 63 years. You are invited to join the House of Sharing and show your support to the survivors who continue the fight for justice.
