Director Marilyn Ness takes her viewer into some of the toughest neighborhoods in Baltimore during a three-year period of unparalleled violence. With intimacy and candor, her camera captures all the fury, grit, and compassion of the residents of this challenged, yet vibrant city. Baltimore’s situation often presents a microcosm of insight into the ongoing, nationwide crisis of violence and distrust between civilians and police officers; at the same time, the actions of the city’s citizens may also help chart a direction forward. In these divisive times, Charm City offers humanity as common ground.
