“I wanted to make a film about sexual assault that doesn’t put the burden on victims,” says Nancy Schwartzman, the director of Roll Red Roll, a new documentary that revisits the shocking high-school rape case that shook the town of Steubenville, Ohio, in 2012. “So often in our culture the burden hinges on the victim. She has to come forward, give her name, and then we decide whether we believe her or not.”
