Rat Film
Directed by Theo Anthony
USA, Documentary, 82 minutes

In his debut documentary, Rat Film, Baltimore native Theo Anthony use his hometown’s most pervasive pest, the Norway rat, to demonstrate the impact of zoning laws on the city’s wealth distribution. On the map and in the gutter. Told through Anthony’s natural process of discovery, this fascinating film unfolds organically, presenting many different sides to the story. A dizzying edit and squirming subject matter contrast with the droll, computer-modulated narration. Warning: Graphic imagery of rat deaths.
