FREE admission with popcorn and drink included!
A groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most shameful and best-kept secrets, THE INVISIBLE WAR reveals the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. A staggering 19,000+ male and female service members are estimated to have been assaulted in 2010 alone. And the number of military sexual assaults in the last decade is believed to be in the hundreds of thousands. A female soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow service member than killed by enemy fire. Tracing the powerfully emotional stories of several male and female veterans, the film reveals the systemic cover-up of the crimes they have suffered and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and careers serving our country. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion at Buen Apetito restaurant, next door to the Cinema. Unrated. 93 Min.
