An intimate portrait of those surviving in, and fighting for, Baltimore – where street violence has become an epidemic.
In a city where homicides are a daily occurrence, where a community has been strangled of economic worth, and child poverty and racial inequality are inextricably linked, peace seems far off. Yet in Baltimore, USA, there exist dedicated community leaders, compassionate law-enforcement officers and a progressive young city councilman working to stem the epidemic of violence.
Filmed on the frontline during the three years leading up to Presidents Trump’s election, Charm City is an intimate portrait of the disenfranchised inner city Americans surviving in, and fighting for, the city they call home. From Marilyn Ness, this is a film about unparalleled community power and the strength of humanity.
