This film depicts the daily existence and struggles of
survivors of military prostitution in Korea. The
title, "Me and the Owl," is from one of the
survivor's artworks. The "owl" symbolizes a woman in
prostitution who only comes out at night. But this
documentary shows the life of an "owl" who
comes out in the daylight.

With special guest speaker YU YOUNG NIM, Director of
Durebang (My Sister's Place, a center in Uijongbu,
near Seoul, for women working around U.S.
bases) and longtime women's and human rights activist.
As a collaborator on the film project, she will
provide historical and political contexts
for the film, and will discuss women's organizing.

Durebang is a member of SAFE Korea, the first feminist
coalition in South Korea to promote awareness of
issues related to militarism.
