A compelling documentary, The Invisible War, made its world premiere on Friday night, Jan. 20, in Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival. In the film, Emmy-nominated director Kirby Dick and producer Amy Ziering investigate the epidemic of rape that mars the U.S. military.
The film exposes the systemic cover up of the crimes and captures the several heart-wrenching stories of victims as they rebuild their lives and fight for justice. It also features interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that illuminate the circumstances that exist for rape in the military—its history of glossing over such crimes, and what can be done to bring about the much needed change in the system.
Executive Producers include Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Regina Kulik Scully, and Geralyn Dreyfous.
