(NR) Japan/USA/South Korea – 2 hr
2019 · d. Miki Dezaki
Starring Koichi Nakano, Kent Gilbert
Since WWII, the matter of the “comfort women” has remained fiercely controversial and politically divisive. This documentary delves into the issue’s most contentious debates—were the women serving Japanese soldiers in front-line brothels sex workers or sex slaves? Were they coerced into service? Does Japan have a legal obligation to apologize?
Director Miki Dezaki will join us for a post-screening conversation.
Presented by Haverford College’s John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities as part of the Strange Truth 2020 series, this screening is free for Tri-Co students, faculty, and staff.
