Film Screening: Shusenjo – The Main Battleground of the Comfort Women Issue
December 5, 2019 - 17:00-20:00
The 85th Stockholm Seminar on Japan
How has the issue of women’s rights become the battleground of political quandary in Japan and South Korea?
The film Shusenjo delves deep into the highly controversial ‘comfort women’ issue and presents the viewpoints of those who are involved in the debate. It attempts to find answers to some of the biggest questions for Japanese and Koreans: Were ‘comfort women’ prostitutes or sex slaves? Were they coercively recruited? And, does Japan have a legal responsibility to apologize to the former comfort women?
Miki Dezaki is a graduate of the Graduate Program in Global Studies at Sophia University in Tokyo. Shusenjo, which is produced as his graduation project, is his directorial debut.
