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."
