Kirby Dick’s hard-hitting film The Invisible War (pictured) has been named as the year’s best doc at the annual Chicago Film Critics Association Awards.

The film, which looks at issues surrounding sexual abuse in the U.S. military, beat Searching for Sugar Man, The Queen of Versailles, The Central Park Five and West of Memphis to take the prize.

The win comes after The Invisible War won the audience award for documentary at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, and was named one of realscreen’s MIPTV Picks last April.

The doc is also one of 15 to make it to the Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary Feature.
