Director Nancy Schwartzman On Her New 'POV' Documentary, 'Roll Red Roll'


A scene from the new documentary 'Roll Red Roll,' airing on PBS. As Schwartzman investigated, she was driven by the question that underlies rape culture across the country and around the world: Why didn’t anyone stop it? Roll Red Roll, a documentary that kicks off the 32nd season of the PBS series “POV” tonight, aims to answer that question. Schwartzman discusses the impetus for the doc, what she uncovered in Steubenville and townspeople’s reaction to Roll. Nancy Schwartzman: I was really compelled to revisit the case not for the criminal and procedure reasons but really because it illuminated a bigger story about rape culture.
