안녕하세요?
코윈캐나다, 코윈오타와, 한웨이 소사이어티가 공동 주관하여 9월 9일 금요일 7시에 알공퀸 대학의 Algonquin Commons Theatre 에서 영화 “귀향”을 상영합니다.
오타와에도 K-Pop 과 소녀시대를 좋아하는 캐나다인들이 많습니다.  그들은 처음엔 한국인의 춤솜씨와 노래에 반하였다가 점점더 한국인과 한국문화, 그리고 역사에 대해 관심을 갖게 되는 듯합니다. 잘 모르는 캐나다인들에게 우리 한국인의 긴 역사 속에 아물지 않은 아픔이 깃들여 있음을 알리기는 그리 쉽지 않습니다.  제2차 세계대전시 일본군에 의해 종군위안부로 끌려가지옥과 같은 삶을 살았던 분들이 그 역사를 눈물로 증언합니다.

한국 전쟁 역사의 아픔을 잘 알고 있는 어른 세대는 물론이고, 캐나다인으로 자라고 있는 젊은 세대 한국인들과 많은 현지 캐나다인들이 이 영화를 관람하여, 이러한 역사가 다시는 되풀이 되지 않기를 함께 소망하는 시간을 갖고자 합니다.

코윈캐나다, 코윈오타와, 한웨이 소사이어티가 공동 주관하여 마련하였으며, 영화의 수익금의 일부는 위안부 할머니들께서 함께 살고 계시는 “나눔의 집”에 기부합니다.

가족과 주변의 이웃, 직장 동료들, 친지들과 함께 오시기 바랍니다.

    OTTAWA PREMIERE OF “SPIRITS’ HOMECOMING” (2016)  Come join us on September 9th for an exclusive film screening of “Spirits’ Homecoming”, a South Korean film directed by Jo Jung-rae.

The film follows the lives of two young girls aged 14 and 16 who were taken as sexual slaves or so-called “comfort women” by Japanese soldiers, robbed of their basic human rights and dignity. This is a true story
based on the life of a “comfort women” survivor, Kang Il Chul.
The story of these young girls reflects the lives of over 200,000 victims in Asia who suffered the same fate by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second World War. Tragically, it is estimated that only 238 Korean women and girls managed to return back to Korea at the end of the war.  The issue of “comfort women” is an international human rights issue that has yet to be fully resolved. With so few surviving victims, the timing of this screening
is crucial for everyone to learn the truth of what happened in history to ensure that it is not forgotten.

These “comfort women” deserve their honour and dignity restored and their stories need to be told to educate the world of
the horrific tragedies that befell these young women and girls, many of whom never had the chance to live out their youth. Presented by KOWIN Canada with KOWIN Ottawa and Hanway Society
