Please join us for Charm City, a film by Marilyn Ness and Katy Chevigny.
During three years of unparalleled violence in Baltimore, Charm City delivers an unexpectedly candid, observational portrait of the police, citizens, and government officials left on the frontlines. In these divisive times, Charm City offers humanity as common ground.
Filmed over three tumultuous years covering the lead up to, and aftermath of, Freddie Gray’s death in police custody in 2015, this is an unflinching portrait of the city’s impoverished and hope-starved streets. With trust broken, homicides rampant, and neighborhoods suffering, devoted community leaders, sympathetic law-enforcement officers and a progressive city councilman try to stem the epidemic of violence. The film’s subjects intersect in unpredictable ways to move beyond the roiling distrust and fight for a better future in Charm City.
