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”.

“Remarkable… Brilliantly defies categorization.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“It’s one of the most extraordinary, visionary inspirations in the recent cinema.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“A dazzling collage… working in the spirit of Chris Marker, Agnès Varda, and Werner Herzog.” – Noel Murray, Playlist
