    Name: "Roll Red Roll" Film Screening
    Date: April 28, 2019
    Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    The Chagrin Documentary Film Festival In partnership with National Council of Jewish Women/Cleveland (NCJW/CLE) and the Mandel JCC present a special viewing of "Roll Red Roll." “Roll Red Roll” (Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v1iUSyViyo) Rape Culture in America: Teenage Rape, Responsibility and Repudiation. This powerful film explores the issue of sexual assault, the rape culture in society and how it split an Ohio community. 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 Alex Goddard 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. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, “Roll Red Roll” uncovers the engrained 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?”
