Cabin 12, written by John Bishop, is a powerful story of a father and son who must find a way to communicate in their time of grief and transform their pain into love.

Carleton College’s Gender and Sexuality Center will host a public screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary film, “The Invisible War,” on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Cinema.  This groundbreaking investigative film uncovers the prevalence of sexual assault within the U.S. military. This event is free and open to the public.


“The Invisible War” was recently nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2013 Academy Awards; it premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received the U.S. Documentary Audience Award. The film looks at the epidemic of rape within the military—a female U.S. soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010.
