DCTV Presents The Invisible War
A female soldier today in Iraq or Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire.

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. Premiering at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the esteemed Audience Award, 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. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.

Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering | 97 min | 2012

PANELISTS:
Kirby Dick (Director) will join us via Skype. He is an Academy and Emmy Award nominated documentary director. The son of a World War II Navy veteran, Dick was nominated for an Emmy for Outrage (released by Magnolia Pictures) a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of powerful, closeted politicians and the political and media institutions that protect them. In 2006, he directed This Film Is Not Yet Rated, released by IFC Films. A breakthrough investigation of the highly secretive MPAA film ratings system, the film compelled the MPAA to make long overdue changes in the way it rates films. Dick's prior film, Twist of Faith, received a 2004 Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature. Dick's other films include, Derrida, a complex portrait of the world-renowned French philosopher Jacques Derrida, which won the Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco Film Festival, and the internationally acclaimed Sick:The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist, which won the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Grand Prize at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
