ESJF would like to thank the following guests for making this screening so meaningful. Kwangmin Kim, Executive Director of Korea NGO Center in Osaka, provided the audience with clear answers to their questions and background information on educational injustice being committed against Korean descents living in Japan. Miho Kim Lee of Eclipse Rising provided great translations and also fielded questions from the audience. Informational flyers sent by Kyunghee Ha of Eclipse Rising, from Japan, were very helpful in giving further context about this state-organized ethnic discrimination through education.
We thank Jenny Chan, co-founder and executive director of Pacific Atrocities Education, for making her center available for both screenings.
ESJF would like to thank the members of Eclipse Rising, Nikkei Resisters, One Heart for Justice, Youth Forum Fukuoka (YFF), and Justice for "Comfort Women" United Kindom for attending.
ESJF is especially grateful to Director Chanyu Ko for making this screening possible. It was a great evening of much-needed exposure to rarely known racial and educational injustice, discussion, and reflection.
This film has been nominated for this year's Tokyo Documentary Film Festival.
