Roll Red Roll

Roll Red Roll is a true-crime documentary 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, specifically in Steubenville, OH.  Rachel Dissell, award-winning Plain Dealer reporter who helped bring this incident to light, will lead the post-screening conversation on sexual violence, its impact and ways to change the culture.
