TWENTY TWO

TWENTY TWO screens at BFI Southbank (24 FEB 15:30):

This award-winning film on the subject of Chinese ‘comfort women’ during WWII became a box-office phenomenon and China’s highest-grossing and most-popular documentary of all time.

At the time of filming, only 22 of the 200,000 Chinese victims forced into sexual slavery during the war remained alive. Through a restrained and careful approach, the film offers a window into lives of these 22 elderly women.
