Christopher Lee, the director of the documentary film, "The Last Tear"

"The Last Tear" is a documentary film shedding light on the issue of "comfort women" and violation of their human rights that was released in time for the Independence Day of Korea on August 15 this year. It was screened across the world, and garnered public and critical acclaim.

We met with the director, Christopher Lee, at Korea National University of Arts (K-Arts). As a second generation Korean-American, Lee has been producing historical documentaries that bring Korean history to light, especially for second-generation Korean-Americans like himself who are mostly illiterate about the history of their homeland. He once garnered people’s attention in Korea with "Fading Away," a documentary that focuses on Korean War veterans and refugees.

His latest documentary, "The Last Tear," was honored with a number of prizes at international film festivals including the International Film Festival for Peace, Inspiration and Equality and the World Humanitarian Awards in Indonesia.

14 college students from Korea, the US, China and other parts of the world took part in the making of the documentary, which shows them visiting and interviewing Park Sun-yi, one of the victims living in Namhae, to better understand what happened to her. Through the encounter, understanding and empathy between the women from different generations, "The Last Tear" provides insight into the modern history of Korea.

Join us on this week’s The INNERview to meet Director Christopher Lee who brings attention to the social and historical issues that are being gradually forgotten and evokes empathy compassion and understanding by focusing more on personal stories and experiences, without political agenda.
