At a pre-season football party in small-town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place: the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered online by crime blogger Alexandria Goddard, and chronicled by Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter Rachel Dissell, that provoked the most powerful questions about the case, and about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents, and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. Unfolding like a thriller, ROLL RED ROLL painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, and uncovers the ingrained rape culture at the heart of the incident — illuminating what can happen when teenage social media bullying runs rampant and adults blame the victim. “Essential viewing. Documents the case in such a powerful fashion that your feelings of outrage will persist long after the movie is over.” – Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
