The passage of time does not heal all wounds; it cannot settle all accounts or resolve all disputes. But the identities of the perceived perpetrators can change, and a national apology is to document and put on record a symbolic act as a prelude to possible reconciliation and forgiveness. In order to achieve these ends, one’s sincerity is paramount, especially when reading a script.
James T. Hong has been producing thought-provoking, unconventional, and occasionally controversial films and videos for nearly twenty years. His moving image works have been shown at many prominent and obscure film festivals and galleries throughout the world.
