The sleepy, rust-belt city of Steubenville, Ohio was once best known for high school sports and for being the birthplace of Dean Martin.
That all changed after the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl by members of the local high school football team, brought to national attention by the hacking network Anonymous, which published videos and social media from the night of the assault.
“Anonymous Comes to Town” explores the aftermath of the events of August 11, 2012—a night that divided Steubenville but in the process emboldened generations of women to speak up about abuse.
The documentary also asks: when is it OK for outsiders to intervene?
