Across walls, fences, and alleys, rats not only expose our boundaries of separation but make homes in them. Rat Film is a feature-length documentary that uses the rat—as well as the humans that love them, live with them, and kill them–to explore the history of Baltimore. “There’s never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it’s always been a people problem”.
Despite the title, the core of Rat Film is deeply human – an unflinching anthropological look at the racial injustices entrenched into the city’s past. With a haunting score by Baltimore native Dan Deacon, Rat Film is a chilling documentary that refuses any easy answers.
Featuring a score from Baltimore’s own Dan Deacon. Learn how this creative score was created:
Winner: Best Documentary Feature–2017 Milwaukee Film Festival; Official Selection: 2017 True/False Film Festival, 2017 Sheffield Doc/Fest, 2016 Locarno Film Festival
“It’s one of the most extraordinary, visionary inspirations in the recent cinema.”
