April 11: Free movie depicts tragic ‘comfort women’ story

comfort womenPULLMAN, Wash. – The film, “Spirits’ Homecoming,” will be shown for free by the Korean Student Association (KSA) at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, in the CUB auditorium.

The sad but powerful story is about the atrocities of war, specifically the “comfort women” forced into sexual slavery by the imperial Japanese army in occupied territories before and during World War II.

“The movie highlights the devastating and tragic history of these women and their families and relays the message that history must not repeat itself,” said KSA faculty advisor Yong Chae Rhee. “It would be a great cultural and historical education for anyone.”

The movie trailer can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14l4l9GNrss&rel=0.
