Hope in Charm City / Collar City

April 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm 8:30 pm EDT

Hope in Charm City/ Collar City

In memory of youth victims of violence, a screening of “Charm City” with cinematographer Andre Lambertson, followed by an informational discussion and candlelight vigil which will be held in memory of local youth victims. Please join us for an informational discussion about unreported crime and under-served youth victims for youth community conducted by various speakers. This event is part of National Crime Victims’ Week. Youth participants will receive NCVRW themed t-shirt.

This event begins with a community meal and victim resource info tables from 5:00 – 6:00, an introduction to the screening at 6:00.  Following the film,  a panel of Lisa Good, Urban Grief, Andres Lambertson, Charm City, and Messiah Cooper, Justice for Dahmeek, will discuss the issues and lead the audience in a discussion. The evening will end with a vigil for youth victims.

CHARM CITY delivers a candid portrait of citizens, police, community advocates, and government officials on the frontlines during three years of unparalleled, escalating violence in Baltimore. The film highlights the positive actions undertaken by groups and individuals, optimistically offering  humanity as common ground.

On the streets of Baltimore, shooting is rampant, the murder rate is approaching an all-time high and the distrust of the police is at a fever pitch. With nerves frayed and neighborhoods in distress, dedicated community leaders, compassionate law-enforcement officers and a progressive young city councilman try to stem the epidemic of violence. Filmed over three tumultuous years covering the lead up to, and aftermath of, Freddie Gray’s death in police custody, CHARM CITY is an intimate cinema verité portrait of those surviving in, and fighting for, the vibrant city they call home.
