The Invisible War Screening and Q&A
When viewing grainy black and white images of brave soldiers storming the beaches at Normandy, it’s so easy to get swept up in patriotic fervor that sometimes we forget a soldier’s bravery can belie his demons. Examining that darkness requires an unblinking eye and a bravery of its own. The Invisible War, directed by Academy Award-nominee Kirby Dick, explores the story of women in the military who find themselves twice victimized, first by rape, then by the brass who would rather cover the problem up than punish the offenders. No stranger to controversy, the director previously turned his camera on the taboo subject of closeted gay conservative politicians who express their homophobia through legislation. This week, Dick visits Chapman University for a free screening of The Invisible War followed by a surely poignant Q&A session. The Folino Theater is located at Chapman University.
