The_Invisible_War_Poster
The Invisble War (2012) (Special Edition) is an engrossing, deeply moving, and disturbing documentary that likely will leave no viewer untouched.

And when some victims–men and women–have come forward to report the crimes, the victims often face a second assault: commanding officers who either don’t believe them or who refuse to do anything about the crime.

The Invisible War aired at Sundance in 2012, it won the Audience Award–and press coverage that began a military investigation into the ways each branch of the service handles sexual assaults. One statistic alone is shocking: more than 20 percent of active-duty servicewomen are sexually assaulted. Directed by Kirbly Dick. Starirng  Amy Ziering, Kirby Dick and Kori Cioca. 60 minutes
