"Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Busan International Film Festival, THE APOLOGY follows the personal journeys of three former comfort women who were among the 200,000 girls and young women kidnapped and forced into military sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Seventy years after their imprisonment in so-called comfort stations; Grandma Gil in South Korea, Grandma Cao in China, and Grandma Adela in the Philippines are facing their twilight years. After decades of living in silence and shame about their experiences of institutionalized rape and sexual slavery, in THE APOLOGY they give first-hand accounts of the truth. They are seeking an apology and the hope that this horrific chapter of history is not forgotten"

Great photography and editing go a long way in preventing the film from bogging down. The direction doesn't rush the telling of a horrendous time in history while allowing the personal stories time to develop. Hard to stop watching. Well done.
