“Brilliant … A movie that cannot be ignored”
– New York Times
2012 Academy Award Nominee – Best Documentary Feature
From Oscar and Emmy-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within our US military.
Profoundly moving, we meet characters who embraced their service with pride and professionalism, only to have their idealism crushed. Their chilling stories of violent sexual assault become even more rattling as they seek justice in a Kafkaesque military legal system. As a courageous few defy victimhood, they face their most challenging fight yet: penetrating a closed circuit where officers collude, cases are routinely swept under the rug, and few perpetrators are tried or convicted.
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.
