Join us for a screening and discussion of “The Apology,” winner of a Peabody Award, duPont-Columbia Award and Best Documentary at the Busan International Film Festival.
The film follows the stories of three “comfort women” survivors — Gil Won-Ok halmeoni from Korea, grandma Cao Hei Mao from China and Lola Adela Reyes Barroquillo from the Philippines — who were among the estimated 200,000 women and girls kidnapped and forced into military sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with director Tiffany Hsiung.
