Film: ROLL RED ROLL w/Director Nancy Schwartzman for Q&A
In small-town Steubenville, Ohio, at a pre-season football party, a horrible incident took place. What transpired would garner national attention. As amateur crime blogger Alex Goddard uncovers disturbing evidence on Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter documenting the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team, questions arise around the collusion of teen and adult bystanders. ROLL RED ROLL explores the complex motivations of both perpetrators and bystanders to unearth the attitudes at the core of their behavior. The Steubenville story acts as a cautionary tale of what can happen when adults look the other way and deny that rape culture exists. With unprecedented access to police documents, exhibits and evidence, the documentary feature unflinchingly asks: “why didn’t anyone stop it?”
