The Invisible War (2012)

Directed by: Kirby Dick
Country: USA

Summary: An investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military.
Review: The 12th documentary of Kirby Dicks’ career is something to take seriously. Several victims of rape within the US Army, women and men, have made shocking revelations about their past and showed how life can be almost unbearable. Very well structured, the message is clear and loud: have a second thought in case you are considering to enlist in US military. Most of the cases are archived and the aggressors stay unpunished. They even try to blame the victims, telling them not to walk alone or dress in a provocative way. It shows a huge gap in the weak military judicial system.
Relevant awards: Best documentary (Seattle); audience award (Sundance).
