"If everyone knows, it can’t be a secret." - The Invisible War
“If you could do one thing political this month, go see this film.” These words stay with me in the days following my conversation with producer Amy Ziering and director Kirby Dick about their latest film The Invisible War. For everyone who cares about our military and feels it is our duty to stand up and protect the people that give their lives to protect us, The Invisible War is your call to action.
Winner of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, The Invisible War opens Friday, June 22, 2012 in Los Angeles, Washington DC, San Francisco, New York and Boston. The film achieves what no government brief or legal document has yet had the power to do. Giving voice to those who have been silenced, The Invisible War tells the stories of victims of the sexual assault and rape epidemic in the U.S. military, and what the military has done for decades to ignore, deny, and perpetuate these crimes.
