United States | 2016 | Theo Anthony
This witty, widely acclaimed new documentary shrewdly integrates a look at Baltimore’s rat population with an overview of the city’s shameful history of racial and economic segregation. According to one on-screen observer, “There’s never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it’s always been a people problem.” “A brilliantly imaginative and formally experimental essay on how Baltimore has dealt with its rat problem and manipulated its black population.” –NY Times. “It’s one of the most imaginative and provocative documentaries on any topic I’ve seen this year.” –Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune. DCP. 82 min.
