Description

From Oscar and Emmy nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Twist of Faith) comes THE INVISIBLE WAR, a ground-breaking investigative documentary 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. Twenty percent of all active-duty female servicewomen are sexually assaulted. Profoundly moving, the film follows the stories of several idealistic young servicewomen who were raped and then betrayed by their own officers when they courageously came forward to report. Both a rallying cry for the hundreds of thousands of men and women who've been assaulted and a hopeful road map for change, THE INVISIBLE WAR is one of those rare films so powerful it has already helped change military policy. The recipient of a Peabody Award and Emmy Awards for Best Documentary Feature and Outstanding Investigative Journalism. THE INVISIBLE WAR was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 85th Academy Awards.
