The woman who accused Florida State Heisman Trophy winning quarterback of rape, has come out swinging in a new documentary release at the Sundance Film Festival.

“The Hunting Ground” raises awareness about sexual assault on college campus’ and the extent they go to cover up sex crimes, including the alleged cover up that took place on the campus of Florida State in 2012, which features the college coed who alleges she was raped by the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

Erica Kinsman comes out and gives disturbing details of her ordeal at the hands of Winston, who was a Florida State University freshman.

She says had been drinking and was admittedly woozy but remembers being at a local bar one minute, and in the back of a cab the next, before being raped on the bathroom floor of an apartment.

“All these people were praising (Winston)… and calling me a slut, a whore,” Kinsman said in the film, which premiered Friday, according to The Daily Beast.

The 21-year-old star quarterback and potential #1 pick in this year’s draft was never charged and Florida State cleared him of the accusations at a student code of conduct hearing in December.

Kinsman filed a civil lawsuit this month in federal court in Orlando claiming FSU had knowledge of her alleged sexual harassment and discrimination by Winston, and that it created a hostile educational environment for her.

Winston led Florida State to the 2014 BCS National Championship and a 13-0 regular season before falling to Oregon in the College Football Playoff semifinal on Jan. 1.

The redshirt sophomore quarterback declared for the NFL Draft on Jan. 7, where he is considered by some the top overall prospect.

While it appears Winston has moved on, Kinsman still lives with the aftermath. She reported the rape, and nearly a year later, it was revealed that Winston’s DNA was found on her underwear. Yet he was not punished.

“I kind of just want to know… why me?” Kinsman asked in the film, according to The Daily Beast. “It doesn’t really make sense.”
