Progressive Film Series: The Invisible War




From Oscar®- and Emmy®-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick comes The  Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigation about one of  America’s  most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape  within the  U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent  of the  problem—today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely  to be  raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The  Department of  Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,300  service members  sexually assaulted in 2010 alone.

Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of rape victims, The  Invisible War is a moving indictment of the systemic cover-up of military  sex crimes, chronicling the women’s struggles to rebuild their lives and  fight for justice. It also features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking  military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect storm of conditions that exist for rape in the military, its long-hidden history, and what can be done to bring about much needed change....The Invisible War exposes the epidemic of sexual assault in the military – one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, a story the filmmakers are proud to be breaking to the nation and the world. They hope the film will help lead a national dialogue about the crime of rape perpetrated on the very people who have pledged to protect our country and are gratified to see the film is already making an impact.
