Award-Winning Team Behind 'The Invisible War' Join RADiUS and CNN for College Sex Crime Documentary

Kirby Dick and Amy Zeiring, the Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning team behind “The Invisible War,” are working together once again for a documentary focusing on the untold stories of victims of college sex crimes. Also teaming up are RADiUS, who will distribute the film theatrically, and CNN, which has acquired the U.S. broadcast rights.

Although still untitled, the film will feature survivors of sexual assault who have come forward to their friends, families and schools about their experiences with the hope of creating safer campus environments. Dick and Ziering also draw attention to the growing outrage as a result of recent publicized brutal assaults involving both college and professional athletes accused of sexual crimes.  

“The statistics are staggering – our country has a moral obligation to address this issue.  We hope our film will provide a wake-up call to our nation to better protect our students,” said Dick.

RADiUS will release the film theatrically in 2015, and CNN Films on broadcast later in the year.
