This is a film that has made history.
Human Rights Watch is honored to host this screening and discussion of Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering's Academy Award nominated documentary, The Invisible War. This passionate and important film has drawn attention to the shameful and underreported epidemic of rape within the US military. US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was so moved by seeing this film that he immediately announced an important first step - a crucial change in the way in which reported rapes will be investigated in the military.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion
Moderated by: Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times and NPR film critic
Panelists include: - Kirby Dick, Director, The Invisible War - Amy Ziering, Producer, The Invisible War - Liesl Gerntholtz, Director, Women's Rights Division, Human Rights Watch
All guests are invited to attend a reception with the panelists following the screening and discussion.
