The Grand Cinema on Friday is hosting a special screening of “The Invisible War,” a new documentary that draws attention to sexual assaults in the military.
Trina McDonald, a Navy veteran and sexual assault victim who was featured in the film, will host a Q&A following the 6:20 p.m. showing. McDonald was drugged and raped by military police officers at her Naval station in Alaska.
“The Invisible War” has won the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival and the Golden Space Needle Award for best documentary film at this year’s Seattle Film Festival. Its creators stress that female service members in combat zones are more likely to be sexually assaulted by their peers than they are to be killed by enemy fire.
