Microcinema: Rat Film


Thursday August 1 * 8pm * $10 * TICKETS

August microcinema - advance tickets recommended.

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."

“It's one of the most extraordinary, visionary inspirations in the recent cinema.”

Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“One of the most compelling, food-for-thought nonfiction movies of the past few years”

David Fear, Rolling Stone

“remarkable... brilliantly defies categorization”

Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“a dazzling collage…working in the spirit of Chris Marker, Agnès Varda, and Werner Herzog”

Noel Murray, Playlist
