From Oscar- and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated; Twist of Faith) comes "The Invisible War," a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem - today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. "The Invisible War" exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
This event is part of the Feminist Film Series, and is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by the New Orleans League of Women Voters. A reception will follow the screening.
