  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "THE INVISIBLE WAR is that rare, issues-driven documentary that is so powerful it's apt to change minds."
    Box Office

    "A gut punch of moral outrage....With heart-wrenching displays of courage and dignity in the face of institutional indifference."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[A] shocking and important documentary....The testimony of the victims, including a number of men, is powerful."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[T]he violations chronicled in THE INVISIBLE WAR are compounded by a deep and terrible betrayal, which ripples outward from the various branches of the service into the society as a whole. This is not a movie that can be ignored."
    New York Times

    "[W]hat makes this savage indictment of the epidemic of rape in the U.S. military so unforgettable are not numbers but the devastating personal stories of the victims..."
