The Invisible War


on Nov 13, 2012

The Invisible War, a heartbreaking investigation into the systemic rape of servicewomen in the U.S. military, won the 2012 Nestor Almendros Award for Courage in Filmmaking at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival and has been making the festival rounds since its Sundance debut. Citing the Department of Defense’s own distressing statistics — 20 percent of women who enter the military are sexually assaulted — The Invisible War reveals how endemic the problem is, and why the shame of it all should shake them to the rafters.
