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".
RAT FILM premiered at the 2016 Locarno International Film Festival and will be distributed by Cinema Guild. The film features an original score composed by Baltimore-based musician Dan Deacon.
