Mark your calendars now because RCASA will be hosting two screenings of “The Invisible War”, one at the Downtown branch of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library and one on the University of Mary Washington’s campus.
What is “The Invisible War” about?
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. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
That sounds interesting. Is there a trailer or more information available?
Yes, there most certainly is. You can watch the exciting trailer and learn more about the film here.
I’m intrigued. When can I see this film?
You are in luck, you have two opportunities to see the film. Below you will find promotional posters for each screening. Also, Dr. Christopher Kilmartin, an internationally recognized expert on gender and violence, will speak at the UMW screening about his research in this area.
How much will attending the screening cost me?
The Community Services team at RCASA invite you to these screenings free of charge. However, we always appreciate any donations that you might be willing to make.
