The Invisible War Official Trailer

From Oscar and Emmy-nominated director Kirby Dick and Emmy-nominated producer Amy Ziering comes The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigation into one of America’s most disturbing secrets: the epidemic of rape within the US military. Focusing on the powerful stories of several young veterans, the film is a moving examination of the staggering personal and societal costs of these assaults.

Meticulously researched, the film reveals that hundreds of thousands of service members have been assaulted over the past several decades, with nearly half of those assaulted being male. Combining interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress with the devastating testimony of veterans, the film catalogues the conditions that have protected perpetrators and allowed this epidemic to continue.

Both a comprehensive inquiry and an insight into what can be done to bring about much-needed change, The Invisible War urges us all, civilian and military alike, to fight for a system that protects our men and women in uniform.
