actually, let me say this about a change i am having in aesthetic pleasure. i no longer need to like something aesthetically to enjoy it. what i ask in the performance is that it couldn't be done any other way. that is, some type of necessity or compulsion needs to be present in the presentation. if, however, i find that necessity or compulsion *and* i enjoy it aesthetically, then i am thrilled.
anyway, here is the song:
and here is a clip from the movie:
soon, more to be blogged about movies--bamboozled and 63 years later. couldn't find much on-line in my quick search for 63 years later, but there was this, so as to give you an idea:
Another documentary - 63 Years Later, directed by Kim Dong-won (Repatriation) also moved viewers with its interviews of former comfort women including a Dutch woman from Indonesia and Filipinas.
With the Japanese government refusing to acknowledge responsibility for the comfort women, the film has a near Michael Moore-esque moment when US president George W. Bush claims satisfaction from a Japanese prime minister giving a non-apology. Made for TV, the film is narrated in English and aims for overseas distribution.
