Screening and Talkback Session: “Roll Red Roll” and the Reality of Rape Culture

April 29 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

OPEN TO THE COLUMBIA COMMUNITY | ONLINE ONLY (VIA ZOOM) | REGISTRATION REQUIRED

ABOUT THE EVENT:
As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and in conjunction with Denim Day, Columbia Health invites you to a screening of the film “Roll Red Roll”, directed by Columbia School of the Arts filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman. This is her feature film debut, and goes beyond the headlines of the notorious Steubenville, Ohio high school sexual assault case to uncover the social-media fueled “boys will be boys” culture that let it happen. This film explores the extensive cover-up perpetrated by a close-knit community and the complicity of media culture that regularly engages in blaming and shaming victims of sexual assault.

After the screening, there is a talkback session with Ms. Schwartzman, a noted filmmaker, advocate, and human rights activist, to discuss the film and the issues it underscores.

SPEAKERS:

  • Nancy Schwartzman, documentary film director, producer, and media strategist
  • Debjani Roy, Assistant Director of Training and Prevention, Sexual Violence Response Office
