SIWFF has held polemic talk events on the hottest feminist issues every year. After screening a relevant film, a forum is held for indepth discussion. The focus of this year's forum is 'Translating Testimony and Verbal Statements - Discussing History of "Comfort-Women"-Related Movement'. From the feminist perspective, the forum seeks to reconstruct issues raised when the centrality of military sexual slavery has been disintegrated. It will examine how the structure of wartime sexual violence, victims' testimonies, and verbal statements have been translated and communicated on multiple levels.
