The Invisible War
THE INVISIBLE WAR is a feature length documentary by an Oscar and Emmy nominated film team about the most under reported crime in America - rape and sexual assault in the U.S. military.
Every day American service women and men, who have pledged their lives to protect our country, are being raped and sexually assaulted. Not by the enemy, but by their fellow soldiers, commanders, and officers - by the people whose job it is to protect them. Today, a female soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan is more likely to be raped than killed or injured by enemy fire. Unfortunately, the Pentagon is doing very little to stop this crime wave.
THE INVISIBLE WAR centers around the stories and experiences of Military Sexual Trauma survivors with the courage to come forward, tell their stories, and let us into their lives. The filmmakers strongly believe this needs to be made now, not only to bring much needed attention to the experiences of these brave soldiers, but also to ignite public demand for legislation to protect the next generation from rape and sexual assault and the life long devastation that follows.
