Film: Charm City
April 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for an Institute for Policy Studies and Indie Lens Pop-Up DC film screening and community discussion of Charm City a film by Marilyn Ness. Presented by WHUT and ITVS with Busboys and Poets.
Filmed during three years of unparalleled violence in Baltimore, Charm City delivers a powerfully candid portrait of those on the frontlines. With grit, fury, and compassion, a group of police, citizens, community leaders, and government officials grapple with the consequences of violence and try to reclaim their city’s future.
A Q&A with LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) coordinated by IPS Board Chair Tope Folarin – LISC bridges the gap by offering the relationships and expertise to help community organizations attract the kinds of resources that allow them to do their best work.
