About the film:
Sexual violence against women has accompanied almost every large-scale conflict, yet most of its victims are silenced. One such sad episode is that of the “comfort women,” or more accurately, the estimated 200,000 women who were recruited to sexually serve the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Now into their 80s and 90s, these women are becoming weaker day by day and such traces of painful memories and tragic stories may never be healed. As part of the Fading Away documentary series, the film aims to give a voice to these women and search for a form of healing.
The film’s purpose is to share the emotions of the past and to connect generations in a more personal and humanistic way. Through understanding the faults of the past, we allow them to never be erased, and prevent them from happening again.
