‘The Invisible War’

Why: Kirby Dick’s award-winning documentary starts with a number of American servicewomen holding forth on their deep love for the military (the camaraderie, the pride, the tradition). We then learn how each of these women was raped by a fellow servicemember, then was ignored and shamed and even punished by the military establishment for surviving and reporting their attacks. It’s an infuriating, heartrending film that’s already leading to changes in the military’s sexual-assault protocol, and this one-night-only SIFF screening—presented by the Women’s Funding Alliance—is the perfect way to see it: in a room full of shocked, sympathetic others. Go. (SIFF Cinema at the Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave N, www.wfalliance.org, 7 pm, $10)
