1/24/12: Sundance - The Invisible War

Park City, UT – There are 1.5 million active-duty personnel in the U.S. Armed Forces. Sexual assault is an increasing problem within those ranks. In many, if not most cases, it's swept under the carpet: only 8 percent of sexual assault cases are prosecuted in the military, and only 2 percent of those cases result in convictions. The filmmaker Kirby Dick's new documentary, THE INVISIBLE WAR, sheds light on the suffering of thousands of military rape victims, and he'll join Doug on Tuesday to talk about it.

Invisible War screens on Wednesday, January 25, at 3:30 p.m. at the Redstone Cinema in Park City. For more information on the film, visit the Sundance Film Festival web site.

Thanks to The Christan Center of Park City, our hosts for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
