After a short introduction at 5 PM, the film will start promptly at 5:15 PM. The event will include a short educational session at 7 PM with Professor Elizabeth Son (Northwestern University) and a discussion with Ms. Yoon Mi Hyang from the Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance for the Issues of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan.
