The Baltimore Sessions: Charm City Film Night
As part of The Baltimore Sessions, the CEL Pathway will host an online screening of the documentary film ‘Charm City‘
Film-makers description from https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/films/charm-city/
“Charm City is an intimate portrait of a diverse group of neighbors, including police, citizens, community leaders, and government officials who, with grit and compassion, survive in and work to improve their vibrant neighborhoods during a violent three-year stretch in Baltimore. There they face a complex web of social issues that are both nuanced and deeply entrenched, with no easy solutions in sight for a population that has been largely abandoned to fend for itself.
With nerves frayed and these communities in distress, denizens like the Rose Street Community Center’s Mr. C, a patriarch of the streets, police Captain Monique Brown, who grew up on these same hard streets, and Councilman Brandon Scott, the youngest City Council member ever elected in Baltimore, who pledged to serve his community through politics ever since he was a young boy growing up in a violent part of Baltimore, all try to stem the epidemic of violence.
Filmed during the lead up to, and the aftermath of, Freddie Gray’s death in police custody, Charm City is a powerful cinema vérité portrait of those surviving in, and fighting for, the vibrant city they call home.”
