Welcome back to our new film club Moon Docs, screening extraordinary, creative work that expands the boundaries of documentary film, every new moon.  

This month we screen 'Rat Film' (dir. Theo Anthony, 2016). 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".

Before the film we will feature a selection of MoonDoc shorts from around the world, focusing on rats, rat control and people control. 

Superb, formally inventive... Anthony is doing what documentary filmmakers rarely have the courage to do, which is to use his assembly of footage to drive a pointed, deliberate argument that is still firmly rooted in artistry rather than political message-making.
One of the most compelling food-for-thought non-fiction movies of the past few years
