In recognition of Asian Heritage Month, the Cinematheque presents The Apology, one of the most powerful documentaries in recent memory and one of the Top 20 Audience favourites at the 2016 Hot Docs Festival. The film tells the story of three women – Grandma Gil in South Korea, Grandma Cao in China, and Grandma Adela in the Philippines who were amongst over 200,000 girls and women who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese army during WWII. After decades of living in silence and shame about their past, they know that time is running out to give a first-hand account of the truth and ensure that this horrific chapter of history is not forgotten. Each relates their deeply personal history.
“Heartbreaking and uplifting, devastatingly powerful experience
…at the film’s world premiere, where there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.”
– Hollywood Reporter
