New England Premiere,  with director present
Saturday, March 20, 1999, at 1:30 PM

1999, Documentary; director/writer/producer, Dai Sil Kim-Gibson;  director
of photography/editor/co-producer, Charles Burnett.  (35mm, 88 minutes)
The film shatters a half-century of silence for Korean women forced into
sexual servitude by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.  The
women demand justice for the 'crimes against humanity' committed against
them, their compelling testimony presented side by side with interviews of
Japanese soldiers and recruiters.  Some of their stories, portrayed in
powerful dramatization with their own voices flowing under stunning images,
echo soulful sorrow and the amazing resilience of the human spirit.

Grandma Chung Seo Woon, a former comfort woman and main character in the
film, will be present at the screening and give testimony, translated by
Dai Sil Kim-Gibson.

Kim-Gibson.  (16 mm, 14:02 minutes)  Olivia, a young Korean-American
unexpectedly lured into her widowed grandmotherís memories of war torn
Korea of the 1950s, finds herself setting out on a new journey with a woman
so close yet so remote.  "Grandma, you have so much to remember," says
Olivia, and Grandma responds, "Yes, but each day brings new memories."
