Rat Film

Air date: Mon., Feb. 26, 10:00 pm

 

“There ain’t never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it’s always been a people problem.”

 

In his critically-acclaimed directorial debut, Theo Anthony uses the rat to burrow into the dark, complicated history of Baltimore. A unique blend of history, science and sci-fi, poetry and portraiture, Rat Film explores how racial segregation, discriminatory lending practices known as “redlining,” and environmental racism built the Baltimore that exists today.
