Film shows for Sexual Assault Awareness month

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness month, South Peninsula Haven House sponsors a showing of “The Invisible War” at 6 p.m. April 11 at the Homer Theatre. A suggested donation is $6. Nominated for Best Documentary at the Academy Awards, “The Invisible War” looks at the issue of sexual assault in the United States military. Directed by filmmaker Kirby Dick, the film includes interviews with military officials and members of Congress about the conditions that exist for rape in the military, its history and what can be done to bring about change. Of “The Invisible War,” the New York Times said, “This is not a movie that can be ignored … the documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick has become one of the indispensable muckrakers of American cinema.” For more on the film, visit Proceeds of the showing benefit Haven House.
