About the Film
After a teenage girl is raped by members of the Steubenville, Ohio high school football team, a true-crime blogger investigates the social media generated during the incident and discovers shocking details about the crime—including the identities of both perpetrators and bystanders—and her reporting brings national attention to the small town. Powerful and topical in the era of Time’s Up and #MeToo, Roll Red Roll speaks to an unconscionable culture of complicity and denial about sexual assault not only in Steubenville, but in society as a whole.
Director: Elivia Shaw | USA / 2017 / 9 min / Documentary
