Amy Ziering is the producer of 'The Invisible War' directed by Kirby Dick and winner of the Sundance 2012 Documentary Audience Award. I spoke to Amy about feminist filmmaking, how she and Kirby helped their subjects open up about their difficult stories, and the rewards of not taking no for an answer from philosopher Jacques Derrida.

"The Invisible War" exposes a rape epidemic in the armed forces, investigating the institutions that perpetuate it as well as its profound personal and social consequences. Amy's first collaboration with Kirby Dick was "Derrida," a 2002 profile of French philosopher Jacques Derrida which she and Kirby co-directed.

    Dear Friends and Family. Last night we saw a movie about sexual assault in the military for both males and females called "The Invisible War" It was riveting. After spending time with Amy, I decided to put this on my Facebook Account because I believe in it to my core. Basically there is a movement to have these cases be brought to a proper justice system and not swept under the rug. It was very well done. Please click on the link and sign the petition.
    If the Department of Defense is to defend our citizens of the USA, then why aren't they protecting and defending their own?? Every one in the movie LOVED being in the service, it was their passion and life's dream. There is so much GOOD about the DOD so much really amazingly GOOD that many of our soldiers relished from the spectacular system. However, rape, no matter who is the victim or the abuser, is still a violent crime and as citizens of the USA we have a legal system to turn to. How can these victims report it if the very people they are to report is the attacker?? Please take a moment to vote. Thank you, L
