About The Event

In alliance with the ONE BILLION RISING event in San Luis Obispo FiLM (on the 18th): THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within our US military. Today, a female soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire with the number of assaults in the last decade alone in the hundreds of thousands. Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of several young women, the film reveals the systemic cover up of the crimes against them and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice. THE INVISIBLE WAR features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect storm conditions that exist for rape in the military, its history of cover-up, and what can be done to bring about much needed change.

About The Organization

HopeDance FiLMs

Our Mission
The purpose of HopeDance is simply to report on the outrageous, pioneering and inspiring activities of outstanding individuals and organizations who are creating a new world--regardless of their spiritual tradition or political agenda.
We publish material and engage in activities (forums, workshops, film festivals...) that are necessary in building ecologically sustainable, practical, down-to-earth solutions, holistic, healthy and awakened community.
Inspiring genuine hope, our intention is to also help connect people to specific projects, individuals, and organizations so that dialogue, wisdom, and vital action will be the fruitful outcome for the people, plants, animals and land in San Luis Obispo County, Ventura County and Santa Barbara County... and beyond.
And we are very much involved in personal consciousness change since often times we need to change ourselves since that is the person we can ONLY change... AND move toward our happiness with smiling, laughter, giddiness to almost counter the virus of seriousness and left-brain obsession of this particular culture at this time.
