The Wire, but then in reality. Charm City is an all-revealing exposé of gun violence in Baltimore, as seen by the police, the authorities and local activists. Filmed over the course of three tumultuous years in a city with a sky-high murder rate and a complicated relationship between the police and the Afro-American community. Marilyn Ness wanted to capture the ordinary people behind all the violence. But when the young Freddie Gray dies in police custody, she found herself at the centre of a media storm in a place where tensions have risen to boiling point.
