The Invisible War

4

Uncovering a dark secret

Utterly gripping and often shocking, Kirby Dick’s documentary confronts the issue of sexual assault in the US military.

Victims are interviewed, one after another, while harrowing statistics are flashed on the screen informing us that no less than 20 per cent of female military personnel are raped; and over 80 per cent of sexual assaults go unreported.

Ridiculous awareness videos produced by the military offer a few rueful chuckles, but this is seriously sobering stuff. Directed with straightforward economy, The Invisible War sheds much-needed light on a very dark secret.
