Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Baltimore is so full of rats that its garbage cans are designed according to how high a rat can jump. Home to the Black Lives Matter movement, the city is one of the most segregated in the U.S. With a sly and cutting approach, Rat Film examines the dismaying divide by turning its lens on to the rampant rodent population. Baltimore’s failure to control its "rat problem" reflects a systemic neglect that fosters desperate communities. Set to eerie deadpan narration, this documentary incisively deconstructs the problematic fabric of an American city.

Director Theo Anthony will participate in a post-screening Skype Q&A.
