5:30 p.m. | Atwater Dinner
7:00 p.m. | Screening in Axinn 232: Roll Red Roll
  • A documentary previously featured at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. In small-town Steubenville, Ohio, at a pre-season football party, a horrible incident took place involving two teen boys and an inebriated girl. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. The story acts as a cautionary tale of what can happen when adults look the other way and deny that rape culture exists.
