In 2012, two high school football players raped an unconscious underage girl. By the next morning, hundreds of texts and social-media posts crisscrossed the eastern Ohio community of Steubenville. 

Many of the posts included photographs of the girl, which crossed the line into child pornography.

The case attracted worldwide attention and prompted conversations across the country about the misogynistic atmosphere of Steubenville. 

Today on All Sides, we revisit the story and the lessons with documentary filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman. Her new film “Roll Red Roll” premieres tonight on PBS. 

You can stream the film starting tonight on PBS POV. The film will premiere on WOSU-TV Sunday, June 23 at 11 pm EST.

Today, the city on the Ohio River is a shell of its former self. And health care has overtaken manufacturing as the county's main economic driver.
