Sushenjo at UC Berkeley
Director Miki Dezaki brought Shusenjo, the Main Battle Ground, to UC Berkeley, Stanford, and UC Santa Cruz.
The film exposes the position of Japanese revisionists who deny that “comfort women” were sex slaves and recruited against their will. Their arguments are juxtaposed with the voices of the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery and their supporters. We see that as the main battle ground intensifies to distort and erase the history and issues of “comfort women,” the more people gain awareness of the history, and therefore intensify momentum to bring justice to these victims. By chronicling the growing awareness on the issues of Japanese military sexual slavery, Shusenjo helps promote peace and restorative justice.
