The Invisible War Screening and Q&a with director Kyle DickDodge College hosts the screening of The Invisible War on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Folino Theater.

An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its profound personal and social consequences.

A free screening of 
The Invisible War
 will be held Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 7 p.m. in Folino Theater.  The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Oscar-nominated director Kirby Dick.  
The Invisible War
 is a groundbreaking investigation into one of America’s most disturbing secrets: the epidemic of rape within the US military.  Focusing on the powerful stories of several young veterans, the film is a moving examination of the staggering personal and societal costs of these assaults.

Says Professor Sally Rubin of the film,

Everyone  should go see Kirby Dick and “The Invisible War.” This is a groundbreaking film that has been hugely influential in changing policy around sexual assault in the military, and represents the highest potential of documentary films to create change.

Meticulously researched, the film reveals that hundreds of thousands of service members have been assaulted over the past several decades, with nearly half of those assaulted being male.  Combining interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress with the devastating testimony of veterans, the film catalogues the conditions that have protected perpetrators and allowed this epidemic to continue.  Both a comprehensive inquiry and an insight into what can be done to bring about much-needed change, 
The Invisible War
 urges us all, civilian and military alike, to fight for a system that protects our men and women in uniform. The screening is hosted by ClubDoc (the documentary club at Dodge College), Diversity & Equity Initiatives, and the Institute for Military Personnel, Veterans, Human Rights and International Law and the AMVETS Legal Clinic at Chapman University.
