Kim Bok-Dong came forward in 1992 and began to testify about her experience as a wartime sex slave publicly. She spent the remainder of her life fighting for victims’ rights on behalf of the “comfort women.” The narration, given by a Korean-American in her Korean tongue, expresses Koreans' feelings about the pain and suffering of the “comfort women”.
I have arranged historical documents, photographs, and videos to provide an accurate picture of the lives and history of the “comfort women.” The timeline visually captures Japanese military sexual slavery history. Against imagery of collages and a photo-montage of images and videos, the Korean song “Ye Mac A-Ra-Ri” begins. A sad piano sounds the history of the “comfort women’s” life. Each scene begins with the image of the Japanese flag. Within the red circle, I added moving images of pictures, collages, and videos to illustrate a factual history of the “comfort women’s” plight and women’s rights issues.
This motion graphics is a critique of the current Japanese government’s response to the human rights of the “comfort women”. This motion graphics is propaganda and design that conveys comfort women's messages in visual language.
