Watch & Talk: Roll Red Roll

April 30, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join our RCC staff for our next free upcoming April Sexual Assault Awareness event. This event is an open virtual discussion regarding the movie “Roll Red Roll.” Participants are encouraged to watch the movie (available on Netflix) before attending the event. Various video clips will also be played during the event to facilitate an honest conversation in our community regarding sexual violence and rape culture.

Movie synopses: Roll Red Roll is a true-crime thriller that goes behind the headlines to uncover the deep-seated and social media-fueled “boys will be boys” culture at the root of high school sexual assault in America. At a pre-season 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 by crime blogger Alexandria Goddard that provoked the most powerful questions about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents, and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, Roll Red Roll uncovers the ingrained rape culture at the heart of the incident, acting as a cautionary tale about what can happen when teenage social media bullying runs rampant, and adults look the other way. The film unflinchingly asks, “Why didn’t anyone stop it?”
