Synopsis


The Invisible War
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick investigates the troubling epidemic of rape in the military while speaking with courageous victims who have refused to be intimidated into silence. In 2009 alone, 16,150 service members were sexually assaulted. Meanwhile, it's estimated that female soldiers in the U.S. military are more likely to be raped by a male soldier than shot by an enemy combatant. Despite the overwhelming evidence presented by these victimized soldiers, however, only 2% of rape accusations in the military end in prosecution. In some cases, male soldiers have even been awarded medals for bravery and professionalism while being investigated for rape. In addition to hearing from women who have been sexually assaulted while serving their country, we also learn how systemic corruption allows the vast majority of their attackers to walk free and what is now being done to ensure that no crime goes unpunished. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Very Intense and Powerful Movie

    This movie shows and tells the stories of both women and some men in the military who were sexually assaulted by their superiors and what happens to them when they report the assault. It reveals some pretty horrific information about our military and it's unresponsiveness to this issue. This movie needs to be seen by many people.

    The interviews and accounts of abuse in the military are very frank and quite appalling. Very sad to hear this thing goes on with some of our troops. I really hope that necessary changes are made that 1) this kind of thing happens a lot less frequently, and 2) it is made easier and safer for victims to come forward.
