HumanDocs Film Series: The Invisible War is in the past.
On Wednesday, Feb. 27, 8:30 p.m. in Ward Hall, Lipscomb's HumanDocs Film Series presents a free showing of one of the most powerful films in the series' history. The Invisible War. This film takes a shocking look at the epidemic of sexual assault in the U.S. military. The film examines sexual crime and its cover-up by focusing on women and men who have suffered sexual violence in the armed forces and are attempting to piece their lives back together. The Invisible War was nominated for a 2012 Best Documentary Feature Academy Award.
There will be a panel discussion after the screeing featuring Trina McDonald, a U.S. Navy veteran who appears in the film. She will be joined by Vanderbilt graduate student Lauren Smelser White; Melissa Swann, site director with Lipscomb's Global Learning and also a Navy veteran; and Kim Reed, Lipscomb professor of English, who will moderate the panel discussion.
Lipscomb's HumanDocs social justice film series is proud to partner with Nashville Public Television and the Nashville Film Festival to bring The Invisible War to local audiences.
