Filmed over the three-year period following Freddy Gray’s death in police custody and during a surge in homicides citywide, CHARM CITY explores the fraught and sometimes combustible relationship between citizens and police in Baltimore. It follows a small group of memorable community members, local elected officials, and law enforcement personnel as they navigate the exhausting cycles of conflict, violence, and distrust that plague many of our communities today. Directed by renowned documentary producer Marilyn Ness (Cameraperson; Trapped), CHARM CITY is a nuanced and profoundly humane portrait of those surviving in, and fighting for, the city they call home.
