‘The Invisible War Trailer’ download – An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military.
In The Invisible War, This Film is Not Yet Rated and Outrage director Kirby Dick has turned his talents as a documentarian to the underreported epidemic of rape in the military. The subject matter all but guarantees this film will be a tough one to watch, but if Dick’s previous work is anything to go by, it’s bound to be a powerful and important one as well.
Fair warning – the trailer for Kirby Dick‘s newest documentary The Invisible War is fairly intense. It covers an impossibly difficult subject – the widespread sexual abuse in the US military. The raw number tossed out? 500,000. That’s half a million women sexually assaulted in the armed forces, and as the trailer portends, there isn’t much done to curb the problem.

Some other harrowing information laid out by the The Invisible War trailer:
• More than 1,600 female members of the military are raped or sexually assaulted every year.
• Only 8 percent of those crimes are ever prosecuted, and only 2 percent result in a conviction.
• Those who rape within the military often continue to assault women and children in civilian life.
The cold facts laid out are crucial, because the material and subject Kirby‘s dealing with is important in and of itself. Anything less than forthright would render the entire effort meaningless.
Although I might be a little pessimistic about a movie’s chance of making real social change, the proper amount of payed attention could have an effect similar to the one Brian De Palma failed to create with Redacted; I just hope this is a little more consistent.
The trailer also shows snippets of interviews with servicewomen who were rape victims, and then victimized again by a military system that used denial and intimidation to silence them.
Hopefully the work is balanced, and hopefully its taken as the honest criticism that it aspires to be.
Inevitably, some will believe Dick is attacking the military, but while it’s a vital part of our nation and comprised of over a million dedicated and honorable citizens, the military is one government institution that demands this kind of keen oversight. Especially on an issue like this.
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. Twenty percent of all active-duty female soldiers are sexually assaulted.
The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
