"Charm City" doc premieres in Baltimore

The much anticipated documentary "Charm City" premiered at the Maryland Film Festival Friday afternoon.

Though the film had its first public viewing at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City last week, but as director Marilyn Ness said after the the screening, "this is the audience this film was meant for." 

In 106 minutes the movie depicts three years of life in Baltimore, told through the eyes of members of the Baltimore Police Department, focusing on the Southern District, the political happenings of Councilman Brandon Scott of the Second District, and the on-the-ground efforts of the Rose Street Community Center and its charismatic leader "Mr. C." 

After the film, the subjects and the director spoke of their experiences making the film, and what they hope people are taking away from the viewing.
