Showing of "63 Years On"

I got an email from The House of Sharing asking me to mention that this Saturday there will be a screening of the Kim Dong-won documentary “63 Years On” (끝나지 않은 전쟁), which is about the Comfort women, and which will be shown with English subtitles. I haven't seen this particular film, but I've enjoyed all of the other Kim Dong-won documentaries I've seen (He's best known for "Repatriation" and "Sanggye-dong Olympics").

Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2011
Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Film duration: 63 min. There will be a speaker and group discussion after the film.
Where: Dongguk University, 90th Anniversary Commemorative Munhwa Gwan (Cultural Center), Deok Am Seminar Room, 1st Floor (How to get there: 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)

I wonder if the documentary will go into depth about Korean soldiers enlisted in the Japanese military who took full advantage of such services.


"an episode of Asian and International history which has been willfully ignored by so many for more than 63 years"

I agree 100%

If the truth is to be told, let it be told in full.

Stepping away from the reduction of Korea’s role to that of the victim in favour of a more balanced view would be a pleasant surprise indeed.

The Japanese never give up their imperialist ambition even with the distortion of history; stop victimizing Japan, which is in fact a loser of WWII like Germany.

Both commentators, Exit86 and Liancourt, must be Japanese; they seem to look rational but actually try to distort the past. Stop your imperialism!
